was wondering if anybody has tried to shorten the length of the cable on this antenna. tried radio shack for some kind of fix but said they have nothing. I know dallas motorcycle has a shorten one but at 50.00 bucks seems a little much. thanks for any ideas.

I know someone who shortened the antenna, and the reception wasn't nearly as good as it had been.
It might be okay if you purchase a shortened antenna from a radio site, but not worth the money in my opinion.

I attempted to shorten one and had no luck. I had Best Buy attempt it also with no luck. Ended up buying one from Dallas Motorcycle Accessories. Worked like a charm.

I mounted my antenna just above the speedometer in the space under the top of the dash. You can access this area on the 05 anyway by removing the instrument cover. It works well and is completely out of sight.
