i have an xm radio (that uses the car type antenna), that i use on my 109..

for those that have this radio on their bike ...my question is this..

i am wanting to know if the long length of the cable can be shortened without doing any damage to the reception of the radio... or do you just wrap up all the excess into a loop ..which i am doing now.

i am moderately handy with a soldering iron and most likely can cut n reconnect the wires even though they are a very small gauge....

however,  i dont want to ruin my antenna if shortening the cable will cause it to not work properly.

Do u have speakers on ur bike or do u use head phones?Â
i use headphones, or ear buds i think they are called....which are okay, but i also have a headphone booster (from radio shack) that i keep in my tank bag, now that raised the volume pretty good and you can hear the music pretty darn good even at high speeds....with either my open face w/flip shield or full face helmet.....at slow backroads speed you can still hear them pretty good even without a helmet...
