    Default What do you do with the antenna?

    I have a 2018 F3L. I don't use the radio. The antenna is not used. It's actually in the way when I put a cover over the Spyder. It doesn't look like it can be removed without leaving a metal connection open to weather and it doesn't look like it could be twisted down and stowed. Has anyone done anything with the antenna on their F3L?

    Thanks

    I took mine off and screwed a bolt with the same thread pattern into the antenna mounting hole. been that way for 3 years. No I don't know the thread size had one in my junk box

    On my other bike I had an unconnected antennae on the tour pack.I found a short(about 3") replacement antennae I think made for hand held radio that went on.Looked ok and may not mess with your cover too much.

    Thanks. That is actually a good idea as I may have a small antenna from a handheld VHF I don’t use.

    I use no-mar hook strips to mount my GoPro to the dash. 1 each side because the dash is peaked. Blacked with a sharpie. Makes for easy removal and remount.

    I just removed mine and used a small plastic plug. IMO radio is worthless anyway.
