Default Removed Tour pack antennas .. what to do with the studs?

I put hidden antennas inside the fairing this winter. Does anyone have suggestions to cover the studs that are left on the tour pack? Thanks

I have seen where some people have used the rubber vacuum plugs from the auto parts store. They are just little black rubber nubs that look like the tip from the antenna.

I've seen black rubberized/plastic caps from an auto parts store used; they come in different sizes and lengths and are usually in the electrical components aisle. I've used them to cover zerk fittings.

I used black rubber vacuum line plugs. You could remove the studs (just remove the tour pak liner and you'll see what needs to be removed where the antennas are connected), and fill the holes with black plastic plugs available at Lowes, Home Depot, etc.

I didn't remove the studs because although I use in-fairing antennas, I may install the shortened whips for lengthy (10 days or more) trips. The tour pak is off the bike 90% of the time and the in-fairing antennas work fine for me, but for long trips I'll probably install the HD short antennas on the tour pak.

Default Chrome Spikes

I purchased a few chrome spikes off Ebay and then had my father-in-law (he's a machinist) fabricate adaptors for the chrome spikes because the threads were not the same. I'll post pics tonight.... I think it came out very good and looks very cool. He's a perfectionist at what he does...

Good thread. Iíve been trying to figure out what to put over the antenna stud on my SG to keep it from getting corroded in case I want to reinstall the antenna later. Sounds like the vacuum plugs are a good option for me.
