Can we think of a million ways to keep this damn thread going? I just spoke to one of my local dealerships and they seem to think it's not so much the part number but how the antennas are installed...esentially pointing to the wires wearing due to tie wraps being too tight (or poorly positioned) and the constant turning of the handle bars. Has anyone else heard this. Nonetheless, they are going to replace mine. I just want to know how insistent I need to be on the part number.
