Bridge Toll RFID tag

I have a 2003 (gen 1) FJR. I need to install one of those bridge toll RFID tags. It's about 1" wide by 4" long. The adhesive that came with the tag won't stick to the 'dash'. Anybody ever install one and where did you put it. It would be nice if it didn't stick out like a sore thumb.

I keep my EZ-Pass in the glove box (I can't remember at the moment if the 2003 has one). I've never had a problem with it being scanned. I just open the glove box top before rolling through the toll plaza.

Hey Ron,

I commuted in the Bay Area for years on my ZR-7S. Used to keep my FasTrak transponder in my front jacket pocket. It would scan fine, but the cameras would get confused and I was constantly being charged a full toll as if I was a multi-axled truck with a trailer. After several complaints to FasTrak I had a customer service guy tell me to keep the transponder with me, but in the protective RFID bag so it wouldnt scan. The cameras just deducted the toll from my account based on my license plate and I never had an issue after that.

Hope you can get it sorted out. Commuting in the Bay Area on a bike was the best!

Cheers,
Eric

I've not had luck with the transponder in the glove box (doesn't read). It's in my jacket pocket.

Keep my ez pass on the inside of my windshield down low with two velcro strips. I only put it on when I anticipate tolls. If not stays in the jacket pocket.

I have a suction cupped holder that I got at a toll plaza Rest stop that I keep mine in, it allows me to be able to move it from vehicle to vehicle and on my fjr I locate it low on the windshield just above the dash in it’s lowest position. Works fine for me, it’s an ez-pass.

I put the Velcro strips for the EZ Pass on my tank bag. If I’m not riding toll roads I keep the pass inside the tank bag.

The 2003 doesn't have a glove box. I'm reluctant to mount it permanently where it can be seen!

Ron, I had (have) the same issue - I was told they mount to the license plate, but they completely forgot to take in to account motorcycles have smaller plates. Anyway, I bought a dash shelf and mounted the transponder using L Brackets to the shelf. As the shelf mounts to the FJR non-destructively, it was no harm to the bike. It was behind the windshield, but I never had any issues using both the tour and the stock windshield in all types of weather. Good luck!

Mount it on your helmet. That way you take it with you whenever you are off the bike.
