Hey guys I have a victory xc 2014 and the radio signal sucks. What do I need to increase my signal strength so I can keep stations longer. I am going to do an upgrade on the speakers and install an amp but do I need a signal booster also..............thanks ....two-dogs

I have a signal booster in my garage waiting, when I'm home I will install it... I don't know if it works yet

When I lived in a rural area I used one. It was hit or miss. Powered antenna boosters don't do much either.

So you are saying that I waisted 5.27 Singapore dollars?

I feel cheated and bankrupt...

Is it just me or the vic radios do not have a very good reception ?

It's not just you. It's the worst radio I've ever had, on car or motorcycle. Good thing it's a great bike!

HD radios aren't any better. That's why its so popular to change the radios out. i ran a powered radio antenna on my road king and it sucked. When mu POS kenwood **** the bed and I had Cycle soundz change it out for a sony the installewr pulled it. He then got out his soldering gun and some wire and made up a 3-4 foot long antenna with he routed around inside my fairing. I got way better reception then i ever did with the powered antenna.

half to keep in mind the radio station might not be sending a signal your way.
I have one station I like and if I head north its with me for a good 100 miles. But if I head south its only good for 40 miles.
I was told 18 inches all you need for antenna not the big long ones.
I think our radios suck

I have decided that probably no bike radio is worth a crap. LOL I thought the XCT might have poor I have the short antenna on it. I put one of those powered boosters and it may have helped marginally. My RSV was probably the best of any I had. Thank goodness for the ipod and pandora

Yes, the Royal Star Venture's radio was much better!
