Hi Guys, I did a search on mounting a radar but I only found a thread that was from 2013.
So I figured I would put up how I mounted my radar- since I just pulled the trigger on another radar setup for my new 10r. (will post pictures when it's all in)
All of my past bikes have had some sort of setup. (Triumph Sprint, gsxrs, Z1000)
I have been running the same Passport 9500IX since 2008. Saved my ass atleast a couple hundred times.
As far as visual aided alerts go - I ran the H.A.R.D system through legalspeeding.com for years - thought it was great.
but it shit itself within a couple of years. I bought another H.A.R.D from them and nothing but problems, it fell apart, they sent me parts, and then the wires popped out of it - Shitty soldering.
I couldn't fix it, and got no support from them so I eventually tossed it out. Shitty manufacturing - I believe they went off shore to save some bucks and it ran them into the ground... they out of business but I heard they are back up again.
They aren't getting anymore business from me.
This is the LED Visual Aid warning light that I run now -
it's removed easily and plugs into the headphone jack. I just put it on by velcro. At night I face it the other way
and it lights up the windscreen.

Here's the mount I purchased - called "techmount" that attaches to the top of the fork tube- TECHMOUNT - Products
install takes a minute ...
As far as wiring the radar goes: I originally had mine wired through ignition and got false laser alerts everytime I snapped the throttle hard.
I called Escort Radar and they told me to wire it straight to the battery for the 9500ix . Pretty much fixed it.
Here's a link to the one I have on my bikes.
