    i just bought the shortys to replace the whips. CB side went on just fine. when i tried to unscrew the am/fm side its like it has been put on with locktite. any suggestions on how to bust it loose. have not taken out the tour pack liner so i dont know if i can get a wrench on the lower half..thanks for the replys in advance.

    There's an allen head set screw below the spring that you need to loosen. I thought the cb side also had one, but ?

    Luckily my wife wouldn't know what's new/old/stock on my bike (doesn't look at it), but she does see the checkbook + CC statement...:small3d031:

    The new ones don't have set screws. My antenna did the same and I finally had to put vice grips on it to move it. Damaged the rubber base cover but I replaced it. Part # 74414-93. About $1.25 each.
