Something in the air, Antennas?

I want to move my antennas off my tour pak. Thinking about the hidden one that is am fm web and cb friendly. But does it work? Open for ideas and advise. I want to make my tour pak removeable.

Try the hidden that goes in fairing, it works, once in a great while it won't come in but it's rare

Hidden one doesn't work for cb and in my neck of the woods not very good . I am talking about the hd hidden antenna . Very short range and much more static than stock . Going back to factory whips for now .I live in SW Louisiana and really don't recommend it for my area.

I moved both the AM/FM and CB antennas inside my fairing. It cleans up the Tour Pak.
I found the Harley CB never didn't give the range that the ones I had in my 4 wheel vehicles.
But I installed the J&M CB antenna and found the range was very close to the Harley CB antenna.
As a matter of fact I didn't even need to set the SWR. It was already set.
I bought the cheap AM/FM antenna off eBay. The only thing I found about the AM/FM range was in fringe areas (middle of the desert).

How did you clean up the exterior mount on the TP?

I installed the Ultra Light bar using LED lights inplace of the 1157 bulbs.
I took the studs out and put the black Harley Plugs (90493-83) in the holes.
The plugs are used to cover the holes on the Passenger footboard mount.



If you totally remove the antenna mount, they should also cover the holes from the mounts.
Great with a Black Tour Pak.

I think I'll just keep my short antenna. My Pak never comes off.

Cover the holes

I plan on covering the holes with some bling bling. Harley book has some cool medallions on page 765ish and bond them in place. I will also keep an eye out for an alternate thingy to cover the holes so long as its cool looking.

What I am really looking for are antennas that really work. Oem whips don't seem very good.

I installed the Hogtenna under fairing antenna for just the radio.... it doesn't pick up the radio station, in the radio stations parking lot sitting under the radio tower. I had better reception when I just removed the antenna off the back of the bike and was running without.






For a wounded man shall say to his assailant,
'If I live, I will kill you. If I die, You are forgiven.'
Such is the rule of honor.
