buy radar detector, dissassemble casing,pull nose nose fairing, drill a small hole in the front fairing to mount the "bulb""detector" (no idea wtf its called), drill holes for the leds/indicator pannel in my dash, extend the wiring to reach each "externaly" mounted(from the original casing peice) of the hardware under my dash, shrink wrap to watertight, install lead wire to battery...second though, tap to headlight...., ground to frame if nessecary, install on off switch in not so obvious place,use shielding tape to isolate all electrical components and im done. right? or is there something im missing? :dontknow:

if you have any suggestions, please let me know!!!



post pics and do a write up as your doing it...

on my 1000rr streetbike, i used industrial velcro, strapped it onto my windscreen, and hardwired it into my headlight. i can switch the radar back from vehicle to vehicle with no hassles.

the radar detector is also not going anywhere without brute force to rip it off of the velcro.

i wouldn't spend the time doing something like that, unless you have time to spare, and radars to possibly ruin.

The big question is: will it be weather proof? You might not ride in the rain doesn't mean that you will not get caught wet.

sounds like you're going to seriously limit the range on it. Instead of 180 - 360 degrees, you may only get 90 or so....I too have thought about this though, so if you do come up with something, I'd be interested to see it. Good luck to ya.

i wouldn't do it with the cobra, you are wasting your time... get a good detector that can actually help you out... look at this link and how the cobra's actually compared... i wouldn't trust that while speeding. http://www.guysoflidar.com/august-20...ctor-test.html the top 3 are the bel RX65, the escort8500/9500 and the valentine 1. once you drop that kind of money on one, you're not going to want to tear it apart. i made a mount for my V1 just above the guages so i can still use it in the car

First off, I would mount it pointing backwards to avoid cops coming up on you, not forward...

You can buy a system for a car that has remote front and rear antennas. As for wiring the system into the bike; other then power it is a fully enclosed device. anywire you extend should be the same gauge to prevent resistance loss. Hot glue works as a good water-proofer for electrical boards, etc.

I wouldn't ground to an aluminum frame.... wont work so wellnon-conductive
