Help with J&M CB Install!

I am planning to put the standard J&M CB handlebar mount on my '02 LT (new to me!). I already have the J&M 2003 CB from another bike and did not want to have to invest in the audio module for the BMW and then the BMW CB. I did purchase the BMW antenna kit so that the two antenna's would match. During the install today I realized that the BMW kit antenna wire will only reach as far as the driver's seat. If other's of you have done this install, how do I resolve the problem. Where do I purchase a longer antenna wire that will fit in to the BMW antenna? Is there a jumper antenna wire that will get me the rest of the way to the bars?

Mounting cb to bike

HI Gibby, I just got done mounting the J & M cb to my LT. Made the bracket for the handelbars, ran the wires and then found out I was about 2 feet short on the antenna wire, so I went to Radio Shack and picked up a cb cable that had the ends i needed. It was 4 feet long, I think i paid $3.00 for it. The cb works great without the $1600 option the dealers said I needed. Chuck
