Question about Harley Davidson FLSTC Heritage Softail Classic Motorcycles

1 Answer

I have a HA90 MP3/WMA digital music player for a Harley Road Tech stereo. I purchased it on ebay and connected it to my Road Tech stereo. When turned on, there was no sound of any kind. The screen lite up and all of the functions apeared as the mode button was depressed. I disassembled the handlbar unit and discovered that the white wire had been pinched by the housing. The wire was repaired and the unit turned on. There was a loud buzzing sound and faint music when the volume was turned up high. What could be the problem? Could the white wire grounding on the housing short out the player? Bill Watch

Yes, the wire grounding out could have blown the amplifier.

I had a similar problem on a BOSE radio for my Cadillac Deville that I bought from a junkyard, but the volume was low because the amplifier wasn't designed for the AC Delco speakers in my car.

I sent the radio to a repair center in Texas and had the amplifier replaced with one that would work in an AC DELCO setup vs. the BOSE self powered speaker set up, and it works great.

Good luck with getting this to work on your bike.

I have a road tech ha90 digital music player . inserting a sd card with mp3 and wma format music . i get a erro message.


First, many SD storage music players do not support HCSD. Is the SD card bigger than 2gig? This could be the problem. Try a smaller SD card.

Can't get it to recognize music we added on a new scan disk


All you need is a SD disc usb holder to transfer files from your windows Media player onto it. Use the Windows converter to format your songs to mp3. Just right click on the songs or albums in your library and then select Send to > Windows Audio Converter > A window will pop up that has the songs selected ready to convert, but you need to first use the browse icon to make sure the MP3 SD disc is the output folder you are sending the music to. Just see whether the disc holder is plugged into the g or h drive, then once that has been done you can start the conversion. Once that is done, you should be able to play the music back on your HD Road Tech mp3 palyer. ONe last point, make sure to uncheck 'add my converted files to my library' as that will double up the same music selection in your library. Remember you are just wanting to copy the mp3 files to the external SD disc for your player not make mp3 files for your pc media player. Hope this helps.

Are there any upgrades for the Harley Davidson Road Tech HA90?


Not really, The problem with the older radio is that the way they fed the power to the mp3 side was to back door it through the FM modulator, thus resulting in a lower volume than theradio. Unfortunately there is no fix for it.

Ha90


The WMA files are probably copyright protected, and this device was not set up to read them. I would try converting them all ot Mp3 format - you will probably have better luck. Here's the official Harley page that I found:
Here's the best bet - there are pdf instructions for upgrading the software and a few other functions, but no user's manual for it per se:

Reformat the card. No experience with this unit, but reformatting of memory cards usually corrects issues such as this.
