I haven't had a chance to dig into it, but I can't see paying for the sirius with the reception as bad as it is. I am going to check for some loose connections. These aren't factory installs from what I can tell. Maybe a jr tech did the install and something isn't quite right. I have short outages even with the internal mp3 player. Really seems like a loose connection on mine
Thanks for the info.
Mine was factory installed. They replaced the chrome cover, thinking there was interference coming from the chrome.
They also replaced the amp saying that it acts as a signal booster. Now they are going to try replacing the antenna thinking maybe there is a defect in the antenna. If that doesn't work they want to mount the antenna somewhere on the outside of the fairing. I haven't heard back from them yet. they say they are waiting to get the part # from the manufacturer, even though I can get the part on a handful of websites.
I still have to ride with the cover down or it keeps cutting out on me no matter if there is cloud cover, tree coverage, or if it's as clear as can be.
Let me know what you find.

Luckily the new one came with the mounts, so I troubleshot for a while and found that the mount was the culprit. New mount and all is good for XM. Being an old school audio guy, the cutting out of the music no matter the source leads me to believe the amp is being overdriven. It is a small amp and I have noticed that it cuts out mostly on bass notes. I am going to source a larger capacity amp and try it out.
Thanks for the post.
I have an extra mount that came with the garmin gps.
Maybe I'll try changing it and see if that helps. I really think Yamaha should know this being they supposedly test there equipment for these types of flaws.
