Adding Sirius/XM to my 2015 RGS

I've thought about doing this for awhile and finally found a hard-to-beat deal on doing it.

This cat is selling the XM module (part # 76000233) on Ebay. I offered $200 and he accepted it.

New Castle H-D has that part for $271. You don't need to buy the $69 Harley XM antenna either. Any XM antenna for the portable radios will work if you happen to have a spare. You will need the FAKRA to SMB converter for these antennas. I got mine from Amazon for $9 to fit an exisiting antenna I had. If you have to buy one this one appears to have the correct FAKRA connector already for $14

I bought the antenna mounting bracket but didn't end up using it. My antenna was a magnetic mount and it popped right onto the metal pad under the fairing. My total cost for everything was $215. These modules are easy to install and don't require a radio flash. To make it even better they are eligible for a free 2 month trial which you can sign up for here:

The ebay guy still has 4 of these modules for sale. Hopefully someone who's been thinking about this can take advantage of it like I did.

I bought one of the SXM modules from the eBay guy, as well as one of the antennas. I opened the packages last night, and did a test fit of the antenna to the module; the connector on the antenna does not fit; the tabs are not aligned properly on the connector. I'll take a picture tonight to illustrate...

Read Dead Bird Dog's post again, he tells you the adapter you need for the antenna.

That's the one that I bought, it has the wrong FAKRA connector, it needs the K connector.

Looks like the first one will work with most of the SXM antennas, it matches what's on the base for my Onyx in my truck.
