Anyone have any experience with installing a radar detector on a bike? Specifically mounting hardware on a bike with Clip On bars... aka, sport bikes?
Also, are they any help? or is it too late by the time the detector warns you?
The first part of your question might be answered well here. The second part you might want to try a r.d. forum. There are several technologies out there. You have to know what type the police use in your area. I assume most use laser on the major highways. To be protected thoroughly you need to spend a lot of $ just on a bike. The advantage is you are small and harder to target and have to spend less than a car to be protected. Im referring to installing jammers for laser. But, there is always new technologies coming out and you have to keep up. I think the uniden r3? was a great unit for radar if I remember reading correctly. So, if you want it to speed, forget it and just make sure you are well into the triple digits . Then as mentioned , they won't chase you
Here is a quote from a forum last year, I am in NY:
Ny has a mix of fixed and VPR guns, everything from PLIII to Stalker XLR, and even Dragoneye has been seen in places, so you definitly want a good system like ALP or TMG, older systems wont handle the newer guns correctly at this point. You do have the benefit of being a smaller object and therefor harder to target, so that buys you a little extra advantage but they can still grab a speed off you with a lidar gun.
Yes, i'm back to those of you who don't like me. Sometimes i hibernate during the winter. :wink2:
Oh yeah, radar detectors and jammers are illegal in some states
