I used a dremel with sand paper and polished all paint/powdercoat off of the antenna mount, the rear bumper and the frame. Basically everything the antenna fastens too and had found very little difference. I have considered running a foot or so of heavy copper wire from the mount to under the fender or somewhere to see if it make a difference, but haven't gotten around to it yet.I posted a few years ago about FM reception. Everyone seemed to just accept it and use I Pods and the like. THIS IS the $64,000 question as far as I'm concerned. Some have said the grounding point of the antenna in the fender needs to be scuffed up. Perhaps it's just a really shitty tuner in the radio module. I for one CANNOT believe that no one at Polaris has ever truly addressed this problem. Any rocket scientists on here got some free time? Or maybe an ex HD radio design engineer?
Ah! German Engineering is in da House! Honest to God, I forgot about this issue as I'm still driving my 14. I just still can't believe they couldn't have figured this out by now!!!I purchased this for my RM AntennaMastsRus - The Original 6 3/4 Inch is Compatible with Indian Roadmaster (2015-2019) - Short Rubber Antenna - Internal Copper Coil - Premium Reception - German Engineered: Amazon.com.au: Automotive

Hadn't heard that. Gonna have to check it out. Thanks !! "When in doubt, read the instructions !!"I've tried everything under the sun to be honest with you... then when skimming the manual it said do not store the fob in the glove compartment as it may interfere with radio signals... so I moved it out of there to try it... my reception improved greatly over what it was... not like my pick-up yet but at least usable...
