Removing Antenna from Tour Pac.

Hey Guys,

I need help with removing the standard antenna so that I can cover the bike for winter storage.

Thanks for your help.

Allen screw? Mine doesn't have an allen screw. Maybe different antennas between Streetglide and an Ultra?

+1 on the tiny allen screw. It's there and must be loosened first. Maybe newer bikes got rid of it? If the OP wants to remove it, I am guessing it's a whip and not a shorty.

When I covered mine, I would pull the antenna forward towards the windshield and it was good.

No allen screws on the antennas on my 2012 RGU.

if the antenna has the spring base the allen screw is in the top and bottom of the spring .

Thanks for your comments, I was able to unscrew (no allen screw) but it wasn't easy.
