I think, if you're Wing is already equipped with the capability and all you're doing is activating it then that's all you really have to do. I found this other thread that talks a little about it.

I was about to do the same thing when it dawned on me that since I have the "SENA Freewire" Ordered the Sena Momentum and I have a samsung phone and a subscription to XM, I don't think I need anything to listen to XM radio.

No, you do not need to buy and antenna. The bike has one already. It is under the front nose cover of the bike just below the windshield. You will need to turn the XM on and go to channel 1 to get the radio number before you call XM.
