hide the antennae

so I installed a new rear fender fascia and it does not have the hole in it for the am/fm antennae. I did not want to cut holes in the new fascia so I took the antennae connector off of the mount and zip tied it to the bag mount. I ran the antennae along the frame and under the seat and zip tied it along the way with black ties. Looks clean without the antennae sticking up and it did not seem to affect the reception.

I did the same mod and my reception suffered. It was OK in town but as soon as i rode out of town i started getting static and then lost the station. I ended up moving mine back to stock position.

I would say the reception would be partially dependent on how you mounted it. If an FM antenna is like a CB antenna there is a ground. Also you would not want the upper antenna to be grounded to the frame.
