Question about 2008 Harley Davidson FLHT Electra Glide Standard
The bike is a 2008 Harley electraglide and I bought it brand new
Is the headlamp a Harley one? Also, is it a LED or HID design? A HID lamp (these start low and get brighter after a few seconds) works on a discharge system (arc) which if poorly designed can cause radio interference. I would myself be checking the antenna wire from the radio to the antennae and check for breaks in the outer screen around the headstock. I have seen this happen and it can be inside the loom cover so you may have to cut this to check. The LED lamp again depending on design can generate interference but most unlikely. If all the cables are good and the headlamp is HD then I would get it checked by the dealer as it may be faulty. I run a HID lamp myself with no radio problems.

Hi Walt, make sure the ground connection from the headlite is clean and tight. If no change run a 16 gauge jumper from negative post of battery to headlite ground wire. If that makes no difference call your local service dept and see what their input is. Good luck
