Post by pupstick » Thu Apr 28, 2011 11:43 pm

Have a look at the "Clarion Type II Radio Installation Manual (531 KB)" file on the main "Manuals" page - it details exactly what you're looking for.

Thanks for the help. I realized that what was confusing me is that there is 2 antenna on the back of the bike, so I thought they both should be hooked up. But looking at the manual it appears radio and cb are the same antenna and the other is just a dummy.

Right, the radio and CB share the same antenna through a splitter box.

Some people put dual antennas on - but putting another antenna, dummy or otherwise, next to a CB antenna is going to kill a fair bit of the radiated power of the CB transmitter, unless it is co-phased (so both antennae are hooked to the CB and used for transmitting). It might look good, but it sure doesn't work good.
