If anyone has an extra new or used AM FM antenna whip to fit a '12 Voyager I need one. Went for a ride today and mine was gone when we got home. Please let me know. Mike

That's a common problem on these. I hear from others the best thing to do is go buy one for a harley and use a 6MM threaded rod to bridge the gap.

I did the same thing with an aftermarket antenna from the auto-parts store when mine fell off within hours of bringing it home. Served as a useful, but ugly substitute until the dealer was able to replace it.

Hopefully the other thread you've got pans out and you don't have to rig something up like suggested.

Mine jumped ship about a year ago.

I didn't want to pay the $100+ OEM cost so looked around.

The Can-Am shorty antenna is $20; fits great and doesn't look bad at all. (of course looks are subjective)

I've meant to get a pic posted of it on here. If I get time I will do it this pm.

If you can wait a bit - I am trying out the auto parts store route to replace mine (which I still have) - The reason - so it more closely matches up with my CB antenna . . .

Thanks for the input guys. I picked up a nice looking black short fiberglass one at Advance for $16 and it looks good. Napom, I would be interested in your OEM if you decide to take it off. Just let me know if/when you do. Appreciate it.

I'll let you know - Right now its on my winter to do list - so I actually need to do the swap and then make sure it works well enough before I let the OEM go . . . So it may be early Spring . . .

I bought the HD TriGlide antenna and an M6 bolt which I chopped up for an adapter which I thread locked in to the antenna, then fitted to the Kawasaki.
Gave much better reception.

I bet you could get the HD antenna for less than a replacement Kawasaki part out there.
