Removing The Aerial

I want to overhaul the aerial and started by removing the black plastic cover as per service booklet than I un bolted the nut, so far so good but the Aerial stayed firmly in place , how do I get it out ?Help please.
Another question I have got has anyone had the control markings on the handlebars fade so its difficult to see them if so what did you do?
I have now owned the bike One week and apart from a windscreen that appears to have had some sort of coating put on the inside making not to good to look through the bike seems ok.
I have not had a chance to have a decent ride yet hoping this weekend will be ok.
thanks to all.
regards Ron

Re: Removing The Aerial

Turn the cap ( the black thing) anti clockwise and lift it off the aerial.

Loosen the nut and then just pull up on the aerial. might be quite snug.

that's what the manual says, and what I've done in the past.

Evening Ron. Mike has the right technique, just one addition. The aerial base has a small locating pin to stop it from turning when you screw down the locking nut. Once that nut is loose, it should just pull up and off fine. I remove mine frequently using the supplied plastic fitting to fit the bike cover. Never had any issues. While it's off, put a very small dab of dielectric grease on the contact. The LT just loves dielectric on any electrical connector that you can get to.
Cheers
