funny as it sounds go to one of those diving shops and get one of those little waterproof bags and put it in that then mount it during the rain. it works like a champ never had a problem when i had my bike.

well you'll need a mount, and you really shouldn't keep it on when it rains.

thie outfit has all that you need, mount, rain cover, "screamer"<----cuz you can't hear a radar at speed and your eyes are "on the road" right?

here's the rain case, look around the site for the other stuff

V1's have remote displays and remote audio add-ons that CAN be used so you can mount the detector itself in a weatherproof enclosure in a hidden spot... The weatherproof enclosures are a little bit pricey and add some bulkness to the unit but it might be the ticket for some that don't want others to know he's rolling with one. Myself I am using a tank camera mount and have a V1 velcroed to the top, when it rains it's in my pocket under a rain coat or in a ziplock with a cell phone. It has moderate protection from debris because it's behind the windscreen and can withstand short showers which consist of sprinkles. At low speeds I can hear all the alerts with a Suomy and ear plugs but around 60mph+ I can only hear the laser alerts without any add-ons. I have a remote display for my car and if mounted on the bike near the instrument cluster it would be sick. (might look into actually mounting it here soon due to recent "Speed Tax" issuings.)

I forgot which company(s) made them but they sell kits for cars that used two seperate units mounted in enclosures, one for the front of the car and one for the rear to be mounted under the bumpers then ran wires to LED's mounted in the dash or some other type of display. (also sold Laser Jammers for like $700+ and photo radar blinders)

BTW: get pulled over SPEEDING on a bike and the officer notices the detector.... OUCH! (I take my helmet and gloves off real fast and put it over the detector so it's not seen before the officer walks up.)

Amen to that brother...I always tossed my gloves over it.

I built a mount out of Aluminum and I drilled and tapped my tripple tree so I could screw it on. It was super clean but I no longer have the bike and I never took a picture of it. I also had the remote indicator mounted on the speedo.
