adjusting antenna
« on: October 13, 2014, 10:42:31 AM »
My antenna faces forward on my fender. Can this be adjusted. I was going to try pulling hard on it to move it, but I want to make sure I dont break it.

Please tell me a step by step way from removing the chrome plate to moving the antenna. Thanks

It shouldn't be aimed that way unless it's the wrong base or the fender is buckled there. Getting it off is super simple. A tiny flat screwdriver at the bottom of the chrome piece will pop it loose then unscrew the 4 phillips screws. That's it.
