Stock Antenna with non stock CB Radio
I have an 1984 Aspencade and I 'm wondering about using the stock antenna, at least i think it's the origional antenna. I'm not interested in connecting to on board speakers/intercom or on board Type 111 radio. I have purchased a midland hand held cb radio (75-822) and it came with a rubber ducky antenna with limited range. I'm hoping to use the antenna with both the on board radio, and the cb radio. did i read somewhere that the origional antenna supported cb radio too,
I plan to use the unused mirror mount on the handlebars with a RAM mount system, any ideas?
Any help would be appriciated.

Also, does anyone know how to remove the clock, that is located just next to the radio, i need to replace the bulb, i'm tempted to just pull it off but not sure how to do it.
thanks,

to remove the clock is fairly simple on the aspy,easiest way to to remove the windshield,then you remove speaker grilles and speakers,then you can pull the plastic out enough to get to the nut which holds a bracket on the back of the clock,and the connector

but first get yourself a new bulb,honda part # 35505-SA5-003, the bulb itself is no longer available separately,this is the whole assembly,bulb and holder
when you get the old bulb out you have to gently remove the green cover over the bulb and transfer it to the new bulb assembly,be very careful since if you tear it you will never be able to replace it

i'll leave the cb to someone more familiar with what you want to do,but dont expect cb range like you get when installed in a car,just doesn't happen

When one purchased the CB option an antenna distributor was provided to enable the single antenna to provide signal for both radio and CB.
Purchasing some kind of splitter would probably suffice.

Bear in mind the previous post about range.
The only stupid questions are the one's that are not asked.

Thanks for the part number, I will order it ahead of time, and perhaps wait for winter before i change it,,, Not much riding weather left her, maybe only a few weeks, then i'll get at it. Appriciate the help.

Thanks for the speedy replies,
From what i've read here on another thread, would i expect to fine the correct place to put the splitter, in the left fairing pocket? not the back of the radio, or at the Antenna? I've been looking at the Antenna, and i don't see how the cable comes off...
thanks

Trace the antenna lead from the antenna forward, there should be a join either just inside or just outside the fairing pocket. there is a joint there somewhere

Thanks, found the join, just a few inches to the left of the fuse block, under the false tank. No splitter just a motorola connector.
much appriciated.
