Looks real nice man. Just a suggestion, if it were me, I would move the radar horn (main detector) into the nose of the bike behind the plastics, this will not affect the radar detectors performance, but will prevent it from picking up laser signals. Then move the rear laser sensor to the front, mounted at the very tip underneath the nose.

That rear detector only detects laser, not radar, and I am basing my suggestion by considering the following:

1. rear laser is I believe much more rare here in Houston then other parts of the state and country
2. it's simply a detector, not a jammer, so it really doesn't matter where you put it, you can put it in your pocket for all you want, if you get hit with rear laser, your toast already by the time your detector alerts you, rear laser is hard as to protect against, even with top of the line jammers, a detector on the rear is going to do you very little good IMO
3. the rear detector appears to have 2-3 sensors facing different angles, with this on the front, I think it will increase your chances of picking up laser scatter off another car (which is the only way detecting laser is going to help you)
4. the way you have your front receiver mounted, isn't going to help you against laser anyhow. it's so recessed I would imagine it likely won't even alert, and I would bet it definitely isn't going to pickup any scatter from other vehicles.

I am not talking down on your setup or install one bit, it looks very clean, these are just suggestions based on what I have seen elsewhere. radardector.net has a wealth of knowledge that would be beneficial to any interested in countermeasures. Bikes are also extremely hard to protect against laser, even with jammers, I suggest buying you a can of LaserVEIL and apply it to your headlight and any thing else your willing to put it on, I'd go as far to say coat your helmet in VEIL, but that's just my opinion.

But anyhow, looks great man, and again, I extend the invitation, if you want to join me at the meet next month and get some testing done on your setup, your more than welcome. I promise, you will learn quite a bit that you will be able to apply on the streets to better protect yourself from traffic enforcement. I spent a few hours in College Station today with some guys testing my setup, and I learned even more, every time I go, I learn more and more.

That wasn't 100% what I was getting at, and while true some LEOs will hassle you over completely legal countermeasures ("I mean why do you need a radar detector if your obeying the law right?") but the great thing about the state of TX is it doesn't matter what that LEO thinks, if your equipment is legal, he can blow it out his .

Pyro I'd be interested in seeing how well my Passport 9500 actually works. Is your test next month somewhere close to town?

Do you have a CI? Or an I/IX? Most of our testing centers around laser testing, and window mount detectors are worthless for laser. But we do some radar testing and quick trigger stuff as well. Last time I went to this one was Dec and I didn't have jammers yet, but I still learned a lot about how the guns work and what not. Word is this meet is going to be huge (50+ test vehicles) but it is going to be late May, and it will be in the Houston area. Shoot me a PM if your interested and I'll get you the info.
