I see that many riders are going to the Shortee antennas - I would like to purchase a stock antenna for my RT-S if someone out there still has theirs and wouldn't mind sending it to me at a reasonable price. Thanks, RadTechRyder

I tried the shortie antenna but the radio's reception suffered too much so I went back to the original. By the way, my original antenna fell off somewhere along the way on this trip but the dealer in Enumclaw, WA was kind enough to replace it under warranty. There is supposeed to be a lock washer at the antenna but it is often overlooked by the dealer because the lockwasher is not packaged with the antenna!

You might try to get your dealer to replace yours under warranty.

When I lost my antenna it was replaced under warranty, i think I remember
the cost would have been $54.99, anyhow I got two shortee antenna, and my
radio reception has been just fine, but then I read a post where the person
said that they contacted the Co. that makes the CB for the spyder ( which I
have and theysaid not to use a shortee, but the antenna that comes with it,
so next weekwhen I take my bike in I am gonna have them swap out and put
the lock washers on the OME.

There should be somebody out there that has one for you RadTechRyder .

We are new to the Spyder and would like to install a CB. We don’t have the height in our enclosed trailer to install the regular CB antenna or radio antenna. We bought a Street Magic Shortee Antenna for the radio and it’s working but from reading forums this antenna does not perform well for CB.

Reading your post I see that you’ve used the Harley Shortee you also mentioned that you used a Stud. (Can you give me more information on this stud?) i.e. do I have to get it made up by a machine shop or where can I purchase this?

We don’t want to go through the expense of purchasing the CB system before we find out about the Antenna, as you know it’s quit expensive. Any help you can give us will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. ,
Dennis

Could you please reply to our personal e-mail.
