I'd almost bet it was not stolen. Many of us have had their antenna fall off shortly after buying the Voyager. Mine fell off on the way home from the dealer, less than 15 miles. Most recommend putting a lock washer and using lok-tite. Do a search on here for alternate antennas. If you bought your bike from a dealer, tell them it fell off. My dealer replaced mine for free.

Mine fell off too when my wife's coat sleeve brushed it! Only 150 miles on a new bike when this happened. When I removed the cover underneath the antenna mount on the trunk the mounting stud nut fell out. Are you missing the screw on whip part or the stud mount for the whip? If your bike is under warranty dealer may replace.

starman1700.....Maybe post an ad on this forum in the classified wanted. Possible some one may have an antenna or just a whip. Also, search for topic on replacing just the whip with an aftermarket. I remember some guy buying a longer whip at an automotive store that was the same thread. Sorry this happened to you.....good way for somebody to get a good ole' country boy arse whooping!

Do a search and you will find its common! They fall off. I grabbed a HD take off am/fm whip for $10 and cut a screw off to make a
stud that fit both the HD antenna and the Kaw socket (same thread pitch/diameter). Lock washerd it in place and that's been 10K miles ago.

I have the instructions for my solution up here somewhere...
Should be a prep item from the dealer...

You can buy a 32" whip antenna on Amazon for around $30.00. Go to the hardware and purchase a 6mm threaded rod and have it cut under 1.75 inches. Use a little loctite to keep the antenna and rod from unscrewing

Locktite is an insulator. Dont really need it. But if you do, only apply it the the center section of the stud leaving room for
metal to metal contact on the ends.

That is true. Thought someone was stealing my antenna until I lost one while riding. I used a bit of loctite on the 4th antenna and it is still there.
