Stubby, 6", 9" Antenna

Anyone have one laying around they would like to sell? I know eBay has them for around $30, but want to try something cheaper just it case.
Thanks

I just re routed mine under the seat. Cost $1.98 for a plug for the hole on my fender. Video on youtube about it. Took me 5 mins.

Did the same on mine, but I did use the Harley stubby instead of the OEM long whip.

For whatever reason, the stubby offers better reception than the long whip when under the seat. I don't have any explanation for it and no it's not a placebo effect

I used both antenna in stock configuration and hidden beneath the seat for two days each. No question in order of reception;

1. Long whip stock location
2. Stubby stock location
3. Stubby under seat
4. Long whip under seat

Stubby, 6", 9" Antenna

All, thanks for the replies. In my case, I no longer have the stock antenna, which I gave to a friend when I put in a hidden antenna. On my old bike the hidden antenna worked just fine, not so much with my current bike. I found a stubby antenna and seeing how it will turn out.
