How do you attach a coaxial cable to the single wire on a shark 250 watt receiver?

Twist them, solder them, crimp them, use a wire nut. I'd connect the co-ax center conductor to the reciever wire and ground the shield to a screw on the case, or the motorcycle itself. Or not.

First, welcome to the insanity. About that antenna, most antenna needs a ground plane to work properly. The ground plane should be connected to the outer braid of the coaxial. As for the receiver, I claim 0 knowledge of a Shark 250 watt receiver. But, if there is no connection for the coaxial, use the chassis of the receiver as the connection to the outer braid. Any chance of a picture of the back of the receiver?

the outer braided shield wires is grounded to the radio. the center wire transmits the signal. the radio and antenna both need to to have a good ground. radio and antenna to frame for example.

A little curious, I checked out the receiver in question on the internet. I know, bold move. Here's the link so we can all be on the same page:

http://www.sharkmotorcycleaudio.com/product/SHKMRC3080DBC/Shark-250w-motorcycle-audio-system-W--new-3-speakers.html

It says that it is equipped with an internal antenna for it's FM radio. No mention of an external connection for this purpose.

Still puzzled, I found some images on you tube that show a flying wire antenna so i think i can see what you are trying to achieve. You want an after market automotive antenna attached to it right?

There are transmission line impedance matching issues here which go beyond your simple request for advice on connecting a coax to this wire. Are you having reception problems with the extant antenna?

Sharky, can you elaborate a little on what you are trying to achieve please.
