2022 Springfield 111 Black & Tan
Indian has come out with a trunk mounted relocation kit for the stock antenna (2889596). Not surprisingly it requires a new liner (2889606). When I first heard of this I checked it out and there were no instructions to look at beforehand. They are there now. I'm really thinking of getting this but then I had a thought.....what about a cover? Is the antenna movable to a horizontal position?
The instructions aren't clear on that aspect. I'm thinking worst case I could do one of two things. One, just unscrew the antenna before putting the cover on or two, make a hole in the cover and use a metal grommet to neaten it up.
Indian says it is not compatible with the following covers: 2884460, 2883889, and 2884459. Two of those covers are for the Challenger and the other is universal. I would think though, that any cover on the trunk would be 'incompatible' with the antenna being on the trunk.
Indian isn't saying anything about reception but I would doubt any improvement in that.
