Default Antenna coax routing

Can anyone tell me where the antenna coax is routed from the mount in the rear of bike up into faring?
Just added a radio/display to my xc 8ball

Thanks DirtyDan...I was messing with it last night and that seemed to be the logical rout, but was looking for some reassurance.

How easy to remove the whole antenna and cable? I will like to install the one that is hidden inside the fairing.

To remove you need to remove the fairing outer piece, tank, seat and rear fenders.

If you want to run a hidden antenna all you need to do is pull the fairing, unplug the antenna and install your hidden one. Unscrew the mast from the rear and you're done. I personally wouldn't waste my money on any of the traditional ones. I'd buy the one off eBay for $10 or make your own. It's just an antenna plug with 3 feet of white on it. Works better than any of the 30-50 dollar hidden ones.
