I think I've seen this discussed before but can't find it in search....
Finally got the little transponders for the toll road. Where are folks mounting them? Not thrilled with it being mounted on inside of windshield. Thanks in advance.

I bought a pouch for the right fairing pocket from Hal. Then I stuck my EZ Pass on a piece of cardboard and enclosed the whole thing in a zip lock bag and placed it in the larger, bottom pouch pocket so that the EZ Pass was at the top. Works fine, have the extra small compartment for other small items; and the whole thing looks cosmetically correct.

The EZ pass system reads it every time. A riding partner put his in a bag and ge has 6 toll violation letters. BTW- in TX they give us EZ Tags that are waterproof for motorcycles.

I have mine mounted on a Ram ball on the brake reservoir using a holder made by www.JJCYCLEPASS.COM and just take it off and store it in the trunk when I am not in an area where I need it.

I have mine secured with velcro in the lower center of the windshield and I painted mine with flat black paint.

My Oklahoma " Pike Pass " will not work in either fairing pocket or my "First Gear" jacket pocket. When entering or exiting a toll road, I take it out of my shirt pocket and hold it up in the air. Haven't got any letters from the state yet. Meby it needs a new battery, it should work better than this.

I just lay mine between the windshield & dash. I have done this
for almost 4 years. It never budges, except when I want to move
it. It has put some little scratches on the Tulsa windshield, but
having a black bike, scratches are part of the design scheme. :p

I use a ram mount square base off the brake res mount. My IPASS is velcro taped onto the ram mount base. The I did two zip ties in an X pattern for the safety tether.

It is angled and pointed to the sky in the same direction as the IPASS being on a car windshield. I have to roll up slow if there is a car in front of me in a manual cash lane.

4 years no tickets, but hey it is Chicago.

I left both sides of the velcro stuck onto the pass (the backing forms a nice pad against the windshield), and place it between the dash and windshield with the M facing the windshield. Then I lightly wedge a microfiber cloth (which I use to shine the bike anyway) between the dash and the pass and it has never even HINTED about moving. Everything removes very easily when I get to a rest area, and it all stows in the right locking pocket, leaving no trace on the dash or the windshield (not even scratches). Gets read by the sensors every time.
