Default Harley Shorty Antenna

Anyone install these antenna on their Bikes? They"re suppose to replace the long whip antenna and work well without adjusting your CB.

I put this one on the bike. It didn't make my radio work any better, but I bought it because I didn't like the loooooooooong whip it came with. It works better under the bike cover.

I also replaced the long whip with the shorty AM/FM antenna. Seems to work the same to me. No more no less.

I got both for Christmas. They look great on the bike and I no longer have to worry about height when I enter the garage or raise the bike on the lift.

While I have not tested them, a friend installed them on his back in Sept. They both work well, and he does not notice any difference in the CB.

I've had them for several months and they work very well.

I put a set of shorty antennas on mine last week. Can't see any difference in the cb or radio yet.

I've been using AntennaX shortys for 2 years but I had some free HD Christmas money left over so I picked up the nice HD shortys last week. I think they look much better than the AntennaX ones.
