Question about Harley Davidson Road Tech HA90 MP3 Player

3 Answers

Low volume! All works well with the HA90 except that the volume is about half or less, of a CD or FM. I have to "peg" the volume to to the max, to get a clue of the song at 65mph. Help!! (and thanks!)

Try using a program like MP3 Gain, it's a free download. Analize and filter your files by changing the track settings. It may need to be done and tested on the bike a few times. But I did it for a friend of mine and it worked great. Read the help and get familiar with the program, it really doesn't take too long and it worked!

Look on the back of the player. You will find an a/b switch on the back of the HA90. It talks about changing the setting if the volume is too low. the switch on mine is behind a rubber boot. Also I just upgraded to the hog tunes speakers in front and that helps too.

You have to open up the unit and change the switch inside from A to B, or visa versa. This will solve your problem. Check HDforums for more info.

The receiver is muted when playing in tuner or cd the volume is not coming through the speakers. We can hear it muted when turning up to max its very low. Lost instruction manual can you help. I think my...


I can't find a manual either. Can I assume you really mean the sound is muted for EVERY source, not just tuner and CD?

I'd guess it's either MUTED or a Tape Monitor is active. Turn the volume down, select FM as the source, tune a station and use it as your test source. Look around for indicators that give a clue.

NEVER troubleshoot anything with the volume control turned way up. You'll blow up or damage the speakers and your hearing right after you discover and correct the misplaced control.

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.

JVC Car stereo with cd shuts off when volume is turned up


Hi Ithink , you are trying to push too much power to your speaker setup. Your cd, tuner, player, is only go as loud as the volume at half way setting. Your speakers are , probally good ones that want more power, and making your player overheat and making circut protection cut power. I would say, you should use it at 15, and that is as loud as it should be played to aviod distortion and overheating.
I'm guessing max is like 25 or 30, Is that so? You can listen to louder tunes by installing an amplifier. Or if you have an amp in your system it may be overheating, I would really like you to let me know if you have been trying use it at volume higher than half the maxium volume setting, so I know I helped, and you can start looking into power amp's. You can crank it up for good parts, but most players were not made to send alot of juice to good big speakers at high volume level.
Tell me what you think, tooldoc

97 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited Stereo problem


If you still have audio but unable to turn the volume, there are 02 possible problem:
- the volume control is defected will not respond ( electronic volume control; need logic low/high to activate the audio )
- the front control PCB is broken ( can be fixed if there is a small cracked )
If no audio at all then most likely audio output IC defected
