Make sure your antenna is tuned properly. The light comes on when the SWR is too high. This damages the final transmission transistor. You can blow the transmit in the radio.

If you need to tune your antenna and do not know now, go here and follow the instructions...

tune SWR

there could already be some damage to the final transistor already, it may be why the light stays on. Tune the antenna according to the article and then if the light stays on again, there may be something wrong with the radio, or the warning light is not adjusted correctly.

If your swr is okay, then turn vr6 all the way down so the light does not come on.

If the antenna light stays on, does the radio stay in the transmit mode after you un-key the mic?

1st thing, try a different mic. This doesn't take much effort to swap mics and see. Borrow one if you can. If not, purchase a replacement mic....they're usually inexpensive and it's good to have a spare anyway.

2nd thing, check your antenna connections and your antenna(s).
If neither of these troubleshooting do-it-yourself remedies help, it is likely in a transmit diode in your radio. Have it professionally fixed.
At least you'll know whether it is a mic or antenna problem to start with that you can fix, and an unscrupulous "radio doc" won't take your money for something you could've fixed on your own.

One other thing, if you take your radio in-hand to a shop for repairs, this repair doesn't take but a few minutes if it's only a diode. STAY WITH YOUR RADIO!! Don't leave it unless you TRUST the people in the shop who do the work!!!!

Maint req. lite blinks 8 times then goes off and stays off when driving. cannot change it.


what this means is that you need to change your oil, it will blink then go away until the required mileage is up, then it will stay on,
change the oil, and have the person who does it clear it.

Tail light stays on when motorcycle is turned off


A long time ago, Honda's had a parking lite, believe it or not. You would turn the key all the way past off and remove it to engage the tail lite. To just turn the bike off, take the key out at off if it comes out ok.
