EZ-Pass mount location

I wanted to ask you guys if you used EZ-Pass, where do you mount it? I don't have a windshield so that's out. You would think they would make a smaller EZ-Pass for motorcycles. The problem is I don't want to leave it there all the time just when I know I'm going to use it. I'm thinking of using zip ties or something but I figured I'd ask here first.

I'm not a big fan of paying tolls on motorcycles so rather than mount an ez-pass I just relocated my plate. Not sure how big the NY plates are but if they are the standard cycle plates I see most places in the US and you are on a 919 then there are 2 bolts on the underside of the tail that allow for a bracket to be bolted there and then you just have to drill a few holes in the bracket and mount your plate to it. I went with some of the little lighted bolts and just drilled a tiny hole in the plastic for the wires to feed through. I am pretty sure it won't work with stock pipes are if your cans are really fat and long.

I velcro mine to the front of the gages. I have a windshield so it's not as obvious when the bike is parked.

That works, just make sure the bike is registered to your EZ Pass account. If the computer finds your plate in the system if will just charge your account.

I have a holder from JJ Cyclepass. It is mounted on my left side handlebar. I can take a pic for you when I get home from work in about 4 hours.

Also, in case your conscience won't allow you to be a rebel like me (or your bike does not allow for it, but I know in Texas there are 2 types of tags. One is the hard plastic ez-pass and then they have another one that just works as a sticker. you might check with your local toll authority or various toll vendors and see if they have one of those. At least that place you could find somewhere to stick it (like a piece of plastic or a lid on touring pack/saddle bad.. etc. I'm not 100 % sure if it would work this way but you may even be able to keep it in your wallet or in a jacket pocket but I am not sure how strong the RFID signal is on those things.

Here's some bad cell phone pics of my JJ Cyclepass holder.
I leave it on all the time and you can remove the pass, the top piece snaps on & off.

If he is on a 919 just bury it in the front headlight bucket. I'm pretty sure if the RFID can go through the glass of your windshield or roof of a vehicle a little ABS plastic isn't going to stop it.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. The problem here is that some ezpass lanes have the arm that doesn't go up unless the pass is read so i couldn't just blow through it.

I'm going to try and see if it works under the bucket if it fits/works that would be great.

I use the 3M strips and stick it to the tank just in front of the gas cap. Works about 90% of the time, but there are some toll booths on the Throgs Neck and whitestone bridge that are problematic. When not in use, just take it off and put it under the seat.

That sounds the opposite of "EZ"

I made this for a friend. He sticks all sorts of stuff on there when he rides, depending on what he needs. If he's heading towards the tolls he slaps the ez-pass on and yanks it off when he gets where he's going.

Stick it in the top pocket/map pocket of the tank bag - at least that's what I do.

Have you tried leaving it in your jacket pocket? I left my iPass (Chicago's RFID toll device) in the glove box once and it still worked.

I haven't tried yet but I plan on it. I just picked up the Tourmaster 3 jacket at the IMS for a song and it has a nice little pocket that I was going to try soon.
