Yeah that radar jammer is bad ass - what it does is it sends a scrambled signal back to the radar gun of the cop and therefore it confuses the gun and won't get a reading.. Of course two problems: 1. It is not made for a bike and would have to be hardwired 2. It is illegal and if you are going fast enough they will just pace you anyways
I went oodles of sites on radar detectors and talked to a guy in Canton about it (Electronic Connection). There is one made specifically for bikes - I forget the make and model - that takes batteries and has a headset for an audible warning as well as a scope that hangs out of your pocket. According to him it wasn't all that good and only worked to the front not 360. I never bought it though. When I have the extra cash I am buying a good one and working on a mount and I will hardwire it. I speed way too much not to have one.
Windy has a bad ass mount on his Kaw. I wish I could do that on the R6 but it has a digital speedo and his mount would block it.
FYI side note...some call me Windy...
Anyway, yes I have a RD mounted on my dash. Sits just left of the speedo. That way everytime I look at the speedo I see the radar detector. It works okay. Yes, you have to hard wire it to your battery. No biggie there, the one in my car and truck are hard wired as well.
They do make a radar detector for cars that has a very small display unit and the front and rear sensons are seperate and small enough to mount in the front of your radiator. I think it is a Bel or Whistler. Cost about $300 or so. I've seen it in a buddy's car. WAY COOL!!! :thumbs: :bike:
