919 Home made radar detector mount
Kind of a doublepost since I put this in my introduction thread.
Been looking into a home made radar detector handlebar mount. Tried googling a DIY one for a bike but no luck, and not willing to shell out big money for a proper one.
Here is what I have come up with:
Using this link, Im going to do what this guy did but use the screws to adjust it 90 degrees. I think it should work but I'll let you know. If it does I'll post the results and a how to. However the radar detector will be upside down, didnt know if this was an issue or not so I checked escort forums and people are doing it alot using the visor mount so should be OK. Only pain in the ass part is I'll probably put some saran wrap or clear plastic over the front so I dont have to be cleaning bugs off my $500+ detector.
Thread that inspired the idea:
DIY: Radar Detector Mount For as Little as $2 - AcuraZine Community
For less than $5 Im definately willing to give it a try. Should work on any bike with solid bars (ie. 919) if it does in fact work.
Also going to have to order a 12V adapter and wire it in under the seat as Ive seen in a few how to's.
