That all depends on the bike and the engine. You need to supply at least these details.

What type of CB are you using. FCC limits CB outputs to 4 watts AM and 12 Watts SSB. You must be trying to tune up a liner amp. Need more information

When i try to calibrate my 148gtl mk 2 the needle is very erratic,why?

can you be more specific please ?
TX meter or RX s meter ? check power supply voltage is stable,
obviously on RX its essential to use a constant signal, of course,
if you're doing it without test gear & just doing a quick 'tweak' comparing with a good know s reading off a known set - a s9 signal is usually the standard point they calibrate to. although on a CB set its not a greatly important. on TX you may first want to check RF power out is constant first, so a dummy load (in case aerial swr is changing while on TX) needs to be used.
If actual RF power is changing, suspect drying electrolytic capacitors, these sets are 30 years old, so its not unlikely. dying driver or PA transistors or dry joints are also possible. or if everything checks out, possible voltage regulation probs, so check 2SA1012 AM reg isn't dying and the other ****** too.
If you're lucky, its just the variable resistors giving up.

Hi i have a midland 98 plus,i have been told that when i talk it have very low volume and people have to turn their set up to full volume to hear me. but the same mic on a different set works fine

Look at Radio Mods or Defcom mods. To clip modulation diode inside radio. Take to Cb shop to Peak&Tune. It may be wound to high in carrier but not audio. Buy you a "Power Mic" at Radio Shack or WWW.COPPERELECTRONICS.COM.

Need to know where to set low power set up for amp thanks

There is no specific dead key setting for an ampifier. Each amplifier requires different dead key to operate at it peak effeciency AND to sound the best it can. If I knew what type of amp it was I could give you a better idea. Just for a reference point I will give you these numbers. For your basic amplifier ( 2 pill - 4 pill non high-drive) you could safely set the carrier at 1 - 3 watts. This is why the majic number for most people is a 2 watt dead key. For a High-Drive amplifier you really have a broad range of settings for deadkey. Generally anywhere between 2 - 8 watts. Some can even handle 10 watts. This DOES NOT mean that they need a HIGH dead key to operate properly. Just FYI, what you run into with improper dead key is either a really choppy, splattery, overmodulated sound with a deadkey that is to low, OR, a really pinched up, tight sound with a dead key that is to high. Also, a HIGH dead key can cause an amplifier to over heat, causing the transistors (pills) to fail prematurely.
To set your dead key "properly" you really should have a technician "match up" the radio with the amplifier. This means, he will hook up the radio and amp that you plan to use with one another in line and tune (set dead key) the radio to "match" the amp. This will give you the optimal audio and performance without overdriving the amp.
Hope this helped. Lost Jeep, Athens GA, 10-7 !!

What its the proper way to set the knobs on this cb radio

volume is to your choice I have mine 3/4 open to get over the noise in my truck.My sq is all the way left,RF gain is all the way right. Mic gain is about half . I don't use the swr knob because I have it hooked up to an external meter . Delta tune is set to the point of the click on the knob . Thats how I have mine set and it works fine for me.

I can hear people talk but they can't hear me I have a cobra29 nwst what should by settings be at

Set the switches to: 1) S/RF, 2) OFF, 3) CB, 4) HI and 5) NOR. You may change any of these to any desired position except for the CB / PA switch. This switch must remain in the CB position to transmit "over the air" - whereas the PA selection simply sends the audio to the PA jack on the rear of the radio to an external, Public Address speaker and the WX position is to select Weather Band radio reception. It is not possible to transmit on the Weather Band channels.

Choose a channel and set the squelch to MIN and Volume to a comfortable level (you can increase the Squelch slowly just until the speak shuts off if you don't want to hear static sounds). Dynamike and RF Gain both should be set to MAX. Delta tune should normally be left at the mid point. The Dimmer and SWR/CAL knobs should be set to any position you like.

Make sure you have a properly tuned 27 Mhz CB antenna connected to the back of the radio. You should review the Calibrate for SWR procedure in the manual - SWR of 1.5:1 or less are ideal, and those greater than 2:1 are bad. SWR of 2.5:1 and up may damage the radio if left unfixed. Check this list of articles of how to tune a CB antenna if you have more questions about this very important subject.

You should download & review the manual . I hope this helps
