If anyone has successfully installed this universal flag on their Goldwing antenna, please detail your procedure for getting the rubber flag "stops," over the plastic tip of the radio antenna.

In addition to putting liquid soap on the rubber stop, I heated it with a heat gun to make it soft. I pushed it as hard as I could, but I couldn't get it on. I know I'm not a strong as I used to be, but I couldn't even get it started. I figured there has to be another trick to it and that's the reason for this post.Not sure if you have the instructions or not, but the download on the web site seems fairly straight forward. They do recommend using a film of dish soap to make the stops slide over the antenna tip easier.
On mine the CB antenna is the only one that comes in pieces and is held together by Allen screws. The radio antenna is one solid piece, stronger and better suited for all the vibrations from the wind; this is according to Honda Customer Service.Hold on here ! My bike isn't here...... but, is the antenna shaft removable from the lower base. How is the " whip " secured to the base ? Allen screw ? I don't remember. My bike is stored 10 miles away.
I spoke to their tech on the phone already. Based on what he told me, I think I should be answering his phone instead of him.I'd still give Kuryakin's toll free customer service a call. Can't hurt, and it just might get your flag mounted
