Having stock stereo issues:
From the stock clarion head unit there is 1 set of RCA jacks on the back of the unit. My assumption is that this is an output jack because there is no option for input aux on the stereo. Also there is a blue and white wire hanging out next to the harness that I also assume is the remote wire.
Basically I wanted to add a simple amp and sub to the stock stereo and hooked everything up to find that no sound was coming out of the amp. I checked the amp and sub and they work good so I assume that its either a faulty wire or most likely the head unit is scrap.
My question is has anyone else simply plugged in an amp into the stock stereo (2006 sportster model) and had it work just fine? I'm trying to see if I need to replace the head unit.

Or maybe there is a setting that I have to change in order for it to work?

I'm not using the stock stereo, but I wil say that you've got to make sure the amp is grounded correctly, or you won't hear anything. Ground it with a large gauge wire connected to the bolt on the frontside of your engine (where your battery's negative lead connects).

Also, just because there are RCA jacks on the back of a head unit doesn't mean they do anything... it's possible there's a slightly better model that has those activated. You should be able to google the head unit's model number and find out for sure tho.
