Radar detector mount

Hi,

I have a Valentine One radar that I would love to mount on my "Big Girl" I saw an excellent mount made specifically for it and for the life of me I can't find it, can someone here guide or link me to the company that sells such product?

Thank you,

Johnny

Re: Radar detector mount

There are a number of different places you can mount the V1, either on a shelf on top of the dash, handlebars or hidden in a side case.

I use this mount from from J&M along with this cover from RadarBusters. I installed the remote audio adapter in the oddments box and it connects to my intercom.

Re: Radar detector mount

Johnny, you might also want to check the Legal Speeding website. They sell a clear plastic cover made specifically for the Valentine One to keep off the weather. http://www.legalspeeding.com/ I think it will work with the installation you are in the process of ordering for weather protection.

Re: Radar detector mount

Hi Johnny,

I plan to mount mine on the RCU shelf. I prefer to look straight at the V1 and not have it sticking off of the handlebar. With RCU there is no drilling into the dash.

Not a great picture but here it is:

Re: Radar detector mount

My LT came with a RCU shelf and the velcro for mounting whatever. My Valentine mounts right in the center of it at the bottom of the windshield, can't miss the flashing lights and arrows.

Hi Mongo,

I like that RCU shelf better than the one that goes on the handlebar, I already ordered the J&M one though, I will see if I can cancel the order...

Thanks a lot guys for all the links.

Is this unit effective against "Instant on" RADAR?

Re: Radar detector mount

The Valentine? Yep, unless you have an older version, but you can upgrade that.

Misunderstood, the OP is looking for a mount. Not the radar itself. The V1 above is one of the higher price/value models out now. I however am going with the TPX. "Instant" on usually refers to older/current use radars that an officer can "pull the trigger" on. The unit of choice now a days is Lidar (sp?) where as a Laser vs. radio signal is used to convert distances. Lidar is much more definite. The officer uses a cross hair to pick you out of traffic, In either case, you (we) are hoping the detector picks up on the transmission prior to you (us) getting within proximity of the officer...
