I had my antenna folded down so I could put the motorcycle cover on. last night I had to walk around the motorcycle for something and tripped over the antenna period totally broke it off of the mount. it looks like Indian has the parts for this but they certainly are not cheap

I have something worse about the antenna. Was at my favorite eating place and two HD riders came in and sat at the bar with us. Got to talking and wanted to see our Indian RM. The wife was showing them the antenna and it came out of the housing. It had broken at some point. I just sighed... Fixed under warranty though.

Yeah, seems okay when I listen to FM, nice clear reception around town. I haven't listened to AM or Weather so I can't tell you about the reception on those bands.
Don't forget the Indian adapter if you buy the antenna.

Says on the website:

Indian: '14-'20 Chieftains,Roadmasters & Challenger Models. Require Adapter P/N 869, Sold Separately.

So an extra part is needed as well on top of the antenna?

Yes they require a threaded adapter as the antenna's were all threaded for Harley's. Saves them a ton on manufacturing. Which helps keeps the price down.

I need a shorty antenna now since my aftermarket trunk pack is 'bending' the stock one way back. Mind telling me which shorty / stubby antenna you went with?
I ordered it off amazon. It was a shorty antenna for a Harley. But it came with adaptors in the kit.
