So I have a J and M hidden antenna. I think I am going to pull the fairing and install this. As of now I have NO antenna, just a piece of wire going to the saddlebag area. So I am thinking that this will be better than nothing and cheaper than adding a antenna to the Tour Pack. And a cleaner look. I live in Glendale Arizona, and there are a lot of good stations here, and I can barely get any of them as it is. So I am hoping that the J and M will be better that what I have.

Let us know how you like it. I'm thinking about getting J&M's hidden antenna and CB antenna for my RGU so I can get them damn whips off the ass end of my bike.
I have the J&M Hidden CB for over two years. I really like it.
I can transmit up to about 1/2 mile in town with no problems.
On the road can reach about a mile. I keep the squelch up to keep the trash talk to a minimum.

I had been using a cheap hidden AM/FM off eBay. It broke and I'm looking at the Harley Hidden Antenna.

But when I hid the antennas of the rear, it cleaned the rear up so much I would never add them again.

Picture with the Tour Pak on.

Without the Tour Pak.

What did you do with the little mounts that are on the TP that hold the am/fm and CB antennas? Do they unscrew off or are they held on with double sides adhesive?
The antenna base is just pressed in the light housing. They are held in place with input screw.
When you look inside the Tour Pak at the AM/FM side, you will see the screw plug for the wire. Just unscrew it and the antenna stud will pull out.
On the CB side, the antenna wire is secured using nuts on a stud base. Take the nuts off and the stud is slotted on the end. Just unscrew it. With it removed the antenna base will pull out, same as the AM/FM side.

Then I took the black Hole Plug (90493-83) used to plug the bolt hole not used for mounting the passenger foot pegs. The two plugs are the only expense you will have.

How does the cb j&m unit hook up in the fairing ? I just did the CVO rear fascia and the only thing I was able to do was take my antenna brackets I had previously for the rear fascia was swap sides and invert it to mount it on the saddlebag support and now the antenna for the cb will poke through right at the latch point on my saddlebag.

I don't use CB so disconnected antennae, put hidden antennae in fairing. Lose reception a few miles earlier now when going out of range, but not too bad compared to stock antenna. Plugged holes in TP with black plastic plugs i found at ACE.

When I installed the J&M CB hidden antenna, it is installed inside the fairing. It installs on the side of the inner fairing and doesn't take much room. Just follow the instructions. It does have "Y" connection (and I have it hooked up) for the CB Antenna cable that runs back to the rear of the bike. I have mine so if I ever wanted to hook the rear CB antenna back up, I could. But I just use the J&M Hidden CB antenna.
