Had mine attached on the left winglet/air deflector on the LT. Ride in the right lane of toll lane puts the pass in the middle, so it is read easily. I tried the top case, but it didn't always read the tag and the fairing is NOT an option. Problem here in NY with fairing or top case attachment is, tolls with those up and down arms. Should your TAG not be read, they need to see the TAG for the number. I know TBTA and PANY/NJ have hand readers, but they usually need to SEE the tag.bjoseph said:Hey guys... where is everyone who uses them putting their EZ Pass toll tags on the K1200LT? I would love to avoid sticking it to my windscreen but would also like it in a place where I can be sure it will be read....
Jer I too do not carry my I pass and just let them register the v-toll. We have one I-pass with three cars and one motorcyclejers99lt said:I was once at an IL toll booth and pulled my I-Pass device out of my tank bag. The operator saw that and a couple days later I received a mailed warning to affix the device as described on their website. I thoroughly perused their website for instructions to affix it to a motorcycle. No instructions existed that I could find so I called customer service. A long story shortened: The operator talked to supervisor and they recommended that I not carry a device and let the camera read my license plate and look up my account (as long as it's registered as a vehicle using a device) and do a debit.
That's what I have done and have yet to receive any other warning. I also haven't been very diligent about checking their website to see if I've been charged for the tolls I've gone through without a device. Having struggled with a teenage driver in the house, I know that IL is very prompt with sending bills to plate owners that aren't registered.
That is great for I-Pass, but I have experienced the complete opposite with ez-Pass. They will send out a violation ticket even if the vehicle is registered. At least that is happened to me a few years ago, hopefully they have changed their operations. Out of three toll booths while travelling to NJ, one did not pick up the transponder. They sent me a $20 dollar ticket. After I fought it, they dismissed the ticket but I still had to pay a administrative fee. Some system!jers99lt said:The operator talked to supervisor and they recommended that I not carry a device and let the camera read my license plate and look up my account (as long as it's registered as a vehicle using a device) and do a debit.
No necessarily. What I wrote in the above thread is due to the I-Pass not working from the tank bag. I pulled it out, raised it skyward, waggled it around in the air a while and then the gate went up. I'll have to be real careful going through states that don't have a lookup system.fredthead said:Inside the tank bag works fine.
Make sure you plate is registerd to your motorcycle easy pass or ez pass account. As stated in another post, the system reads all plates (well, 99.9%) and will auto debit your account if the license plate is on file. No mess, no fuss, no fine.bjoseph said:EZ-Pass in the Northeast is terrible. If you go through and your pass doesn't get read (which has happened to me a number of times) you get a ticket for around $75 bucks. To avoid paying the fine, you have to fill out the back of the ticket and mail it in with a printout of your ez pass statement showing that the vehicle was actively on the account and that you had sufficient funds in the account to pay the toll.
It takes about 30 days to clear the ticket and then they deduct the toll amount from your account.
Plate on file, picture of bike & plate... $70 fine untill all of the above info is mailed in. After that.... auto debit of the toll.johnk12lt said:Make sure you plate is registerd to your motorcycle easy pass or ez pass account.
