Radio Aerial
« on: March 31, 2013, 01:03:50 PM »
When I read the reviews on the Trophy it seemed that the only thing the reviewers could find wrong with the bike was that the aerial whipped around a lot at high speeds. When I test rode the Trophy this didn't happen and then when I bought mine it still didn't happen and I thought what is all the fuss about. Well yesterday I was comparing the screens on two Trophys and moved the aerial slightly backwards, when I got back on it was flapping around like a dick in a bucket, I straightened it up and it stopped.

If anyone has this problem try positioning it vertically and not in line with the screen.

Might as well as wish we had.

When picked up Trophy, antenna was straight up and shook like crazy when riding. Slanted it all the way back and no more shaking.

I have never had any problems with my aerial. Mind you I don't have a stereo  :001:

LOL...Mine did the exact opposite! It was slanted all the way back and  was shaking like crazy, I moved it vertically and the shaking stopped! Guess people will have to experiment a little.

Might depend on the screen position and the way the air flows round it?

It does. Some screen positions cause the antenna to be calm but others cause the damn thing to beat itself to death on the screen. I tried a length of leather boot lace to cause some drag and maybe keep it calmer. Mixed results. I found that when the screen is up all the way you can tuck it behind the screen. One day I'll find a permanent fix.
