XM Antenna safe to mount w/o the screws?
Hello everyone. I've got a Zumo 550 mounted on top of the clutch resevoir. The antenna mount for the XM puck is mounted to the Zumo cradle, so it sits just above and forward of the Zumo cradle. Besides the puck being magnetized, there are 2 scres to hold it to the antenna mounting.
I'd like to be able to easily remove the Zumo and puck antenna from the bike, so I can move it to a car. The car mount works well for the zumo, but I haven't been bringing the puck antenna along with it. I'd like to be able to use the XM radio in the car too. Plus, I always worry about leaving the antenna on the bike.
So, is the magnet in the antenna base strong enough to securely hold it to the antenna base plate, or should I continue to use screws to hold it? If it's not safe to go w/o screws, does anyone know where I can find screws of the size needed that have "wings" so I can unscrew it with my hands?
