Stock Status:

Built to last forever

Every Stubby is made here in the US of A and is specifically designed for its particular application. They are machined out of 6061 billet aluminum and then powder coated with a black textured finish, so you know that a Stubby will never break, chip, or fade.

Reception is Key

Not only does the Stubby look great, it actually works great too. If you are curious about reception, our best advice is to read the reviews. You can see that some customers have definitely had problems getting good reception. I can assure you it is statistically uncommon though, and we always accept and pay for returns if you are not satisfied with your Stubby for any reason.

3 Variations Available

The Stubby antenna replacement comes in 3 styles, each one is tailor fit to it’s specific application. The Original Stubby ranges from about 3-4 inches, depending on the vehicle. The Stubby Jr’s are 2 inches tall to be sure to fit under your garage door. The Bullet Style Stubby is between 4.25 and 5.5 inches (.338 or .50 cal), again depending on the vehicle. They are also anodized, rather than powder coated. To see exactly what size your's will be, just select your model in the drop down menus above.

Custom Engraving

If you want something all your own, check out our customized antenna option. We don't really care what you want to say on your Stubby; put your forum handle, license plate, dog's name or whatever; as long as it is 10 characters or less.

    Great Antenna & Service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jul 2018

    I was so excited to receive the Stubby for my BMW so I cd finally get a strong radio signal again - after breaking my antenna off years ago. Unfortunately, I didn't realize / remember that I had not only broken the antenna, but the internal wiring, so I need to get the wiring fixed, before a stubby - or any antenna - cd possibly work.
    So, I'm contacting CravenSpeed to help me return it today. Their return policy sounds great, so I think it'll be no problem to return. Thanks for that in advance, CravenSpeed customer service. :-) If I decide to pay for the rewiring, I'll re-order the Stubby for sure. - Amanda

    Why didn't BMW do this? 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Jun 2018

    Ok.. I'm riding a K1600B which is a big bagger...and has the typical 2' springy antenna sticking up in the breeze.... looks out of place give the bike's styling. The 'stubby' is a one to one replacement and is only a couple inches tall... looks nice and isn't intrusive

    Great Little Antenna - Excellent Customer Service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 11th Dec 2017

    We recently purchased a 2006 BMW Z4 M Roadsters - The only thing that was missing was its antenna. I had seen 'The Stubby Jr.' in another BMW car, and really liked its appearance. Online purchase was easy; It shipped the following day, and came one day later. The installation was completed in less than a minute. I couldn't be more pleased!

    Replaced aerial antenna on my BMW Z3 M Coupe and the quality of the product is fantastic. Powder coated - this will outlast the car. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

    Stripped out screw. 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jun 2017

    Bought two antennas. One for my ford f-150, or went right on no problem.
    The one for my BMW motorcycle. Different story here. Antenna threats are stripped out. Call and told them no hurry going on vacation for a week send new one after a week. So it would be here when I got home. No antenna. Emailed no answer. Called after being home a week. Was told it was being redesigned. Why? Screw was stripped, just wanted one that want would stay on bike. Waited smother week. Called and was told at least two weeks. Even though you can order off web site , it says they are in stock. Told them to refund money. That hasn't happened either.
    All I want is one that will screw on and stay on. It's that to much to ask.

    Great Optional Antenna 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 3rd Aug 2016

    This little stubby antenna really helps with the profile of my BMW K1600GT. It was reasonably priced and Craven Speed got it to me a couple of days prior to what they even said. Very highly recommended.

    Great customer service 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jul 2016

    I want to commend the great service I received from Logan and Kellen. I had an odd sized grommet and they worked with me to ensure I received the proper fit for my Z3. The product is great, looks great and top quality. Based on the great service I received I would not shop anywhere else!!

    Excellent, buy this 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Mar 2016

    Couldn't have asked for a more trivial installation, and makes the 135i convertible look tons better. No idea why BMW put such an ugly little whip on an otherwise fantastic-looking car.
