Electrical Overload
NOTICE
It is possible to overload your vehicle's charging system by adding too many electrical accessories. If the combined electrical accessories operating at any one time consume more electrical current than the vehicle's charging system can produce, the electrical consumption can discharge the battery and cause damage to the vehicle's electrical system. See an authorized Harley-Davidson dealer for advice about the amount of current consumed by additional electrical accessories or for necessary wiring changes. (00211c)
WARNING
When installing any electrical accessory, be certain not to exceed the maximum amperage rating of the fuse or circuit breaker protecting the affected circuit being modified. Exceeding the maximum amperage can lead to electrical failures, which could result in death or serious injury. (00310a)
The CB Radio requires up to 2.0 Amps additional current from the electrical system.

  4. Test the CB radio and the rest of the sound system for proper operation. If poor CB reception or transmission is noted, see SWR ADJUSTMENT, below.
  5. Install the outer fairing and windshield. Refer to OUTER FAIRING/ WINDSHIELD INSTALLATION in the service manual.
SWR ADJUSTMENT
Standing wave ratio (SWR) is a technical term for the procedure that checks how well the CB transmitter and antenna are matched. If poor CB reception or transmission is noticed, the SWR should be checked.
Adjusting the SWR is described in detail in the Harley-Davidson FLT Electrical Diagnostic Manual; however, the SWR of the frame-mounted CB antenna is adjusted by moving the two rings on the loading coil up or down, rather than moving the antenna up or down, or shortening the antenna by grinding.
To check SWR, an SWR meter or bridge is required. A Harley-Davidson dealer will either have an SWR meter and the appropriate adapters, or can direct you to a CB repair shop for an SWR check.
Since the operating procedures for SWR meters vary, be sure the operating instructions for the SWR meter being used are carefully followed.
