Legend in His Own Mind
Ok guys, what do you think of my radar detector and it's mounting pod versus the ram mount and automotive detector alternatives?? 8) 8) T.
Mac, It's not a problem. All the wiring connections are weatherproof male to female quick connects which I have coiled up behind the unit but inside of the gauge pod. The unit fits securely into this gauge pod but can be twisted as it's pulled to remove it and unplug all the wiring and antenna/sensor leads. 8) 8) TerryMac Clarke said:So you have this beauty wired into your bike and drive through a state or province where they are not legal.
If stopped does the officer make you un-wire it there on site or seize the bike :shock: :shock:
1.The leads are labeled where they exit what you are calling the frontside of the unit also at each leads connector. 2. The front antenna is secured to the plastic tab on the steering head and under the fairing, the rear laser detector is double stick taped under my trunk and is tiny 1"x1". Admittedly the detectors range is a slightly below the awesome range of the Bel or Passport. But if you read all of Radar Roy's report it only finished behind these two in detection range. 3.And adequate is not a bad thing, that means it works. It has saved me countless times and never not detected or detected too late. Besides IMO it surpasses the others in practicality and looks, is weather resistant, and even includes a voltage gauge and temperature probe.

They list the dimensions as 2" round x 3" deep - what does the front side of the unit look like, especially with all the wires coming out the front?
Where/how did you install the remote antennas? They look pretty bulky too.
Radarbusters stated it had 'adequate' performance and the only consumer who commented stated that it wasn't as sensitive as his Passport 8500.

Thank for the reply.
That unit is really neat----then again when it comes to gagets ---my wifee thinks I got issues.
I'm going to try one.
Thanks for the info.
That indirectly answered my first question - can you post some pictures of the pod from the front and side of the bike so we can see what the full installation looks like?tvbveb said:...This unit does not come with a gauge pod. The pod was originally produced to fit the a-pillar of a car or truck. I purchased one and had to reshape it and enclose it's underside to suit my needs. It took some fabrication skill to complete this project but I strongly dislike the alternative, the awkward looking ram style mount...
