There are a couple of used TTSE radios showing on eBay for around $300 right now.  Haven't had mine apart or looked at the service manual so I'm not sure if there's other parts needed for a radio swap, but at least it's not $2k...

2015 TTSE.  It's blue.

Might check with Radio Sound and see if they would offer some sort of out of warranty allowance.  If I recall previous threads correctly I think they did that once before for a Trophy rider.  The radio failures on the Trophy seem to be a pretty rare occurrence.

When mine was dead I called them and asked, and they said they didn't do that. This was in Spring of 2018, so things could be different now.

They also refused to look at it to attempt to fix my Bluetooth range...kinda lame.

I called Radio Sound today. Shipped to my door $285. I think I am going to order it tomorrow.

Question: Is it possible that the control module on the handle bar be out? Is there any instance where this is the case? Given the problems with the radios on these units, I am reasonably sure it is the radio unit.

I am told the job is time consuming but not hard. Anyone know where I can find the process. I have looked at the service manual and I donít think this is specifically covered.
Keep the rubber side down and the shiny side up.

The process is dirt simple, and incredibly irritating and involved all at the same time...simple work, just a lot of it. The process is detailed elsewhere on the forum, but I couldn't find the link.

I had mine out, and when I re-installed it I lined the box with closed cell foam and made it an interference fit, leaving about 1/2" along the rear top edge without the foam. I then ran a bead of silicone adhesive across that gap. It will never move or come out, is now dampened v. vibration, and if I need to take it out I just slice the silicone with an xacto and pull it out. I could remove it in 20 seconds on a bet.

Something to consider...

It's good to hear that Radio Sound are still providing the repair service.  :028:

I have looked at the service manual and I donít think this is specifically covered.

It IS covered at Chapter 18, Page 18.32  : Audio Unit Removal.

This also has reference to :
 
Chapter 18.11 ( Battery Removal ) and
Chapter 17.25 ( Under Tray Removal )

Chapter 17.25 further references :

Chapter 17.8 ( Remove the Seats )
Chapter 17.24 ( Rear Mudguard Removal )
Chapter 10.143 ( Remove the Silencer ) and
Chapter 16.8 ( Remove the Rear Wheel )

Link to a Forum Topic on Audio Unit Removal already provided in my Post of 24 January.

Cheers  :821:

Well, out with the old and in with the new. I replaced the radio today and it was not as bad as I thought it might be. It took me about 4 hours from start to finish. The work is simple enough but it is time consuming. Tunes-uh-blasting.
