Hello Everyone. I recently purchased a Pearl white 2013 ST-Limited. I ordered and installed an Ultimate Seat (black and white w/Spider logo). The seat looks great, albeit the time it took to align the seat latch. No big deal. I then purchased the Corbin Fleetliner bags and this is where the trouble started. I took the bike to have the bags installed at my dealer and 6.5 hours later, I am looking at a $540.00 bill and two holes in my seat and no antenna. The website states that it should take 2-3 hours to install. However, my mechanic called California and the tech said it took him 7 hours to install. WTF!!??? Then when I went to pick the bike up, the mechanic points out that I have to holes in the rear of my seat and he didn't do it. (Of course not). Hold on it gets better! He then tells me that I have to buy a new antenna, because there is nowhere to mount the stock antenna. The instructions for mounting states that you have to install on the mud flap. Well friends, there is no mud flap on the ST-Limited. What they meant was under the seat, pointing straight back. HUH???!!! Are you kidding!!! So to sum this up…I am out of 540.00, two holes in my new seat and no antenna.

Does anyone know where I can get a wireless or shorty antenna that works with the Spyder- ST?

Any car parts outlet would have stubby units. Weather or not they will function like an upright normal length unit is not high probability. Whole situation sounds like crap on a grand scale--sorry you had such bad luck. Seat supplier should have supplied detailed installation information for each unit their product fits. That said, I think I'd be talking to a lawyer.
