    My 2006 Street Glide gets extremely poor radio reception . the Harmon Kardon radio is not the original it came from a 2013 Street Glide and is brand new . I replaced the antenna with the Kuryakyn rubber whip antenna hoping that would improve reception but it did nothing . any ideas ? Or is this normal to get horrible radio reception ??

    You might check the software version.
    An update may fix your problem.

    Shouldn't it have the latest version since it came from a brand new 2013 bike ?

    Try pulling the seat and checking the antenna wire. Any small cuts in the coaxial can reduce reception and cause static.

    If I remember correctly did you have it switched to your region I was thinking that the dealership had to use digital tech to set the radio system.
