I am already in possession of the Cruisader, I had it on my previous bike, so wont be looking at other brands until this one is worn out or superseded by technology.

Tony, I noticed on the web site they say they have mounting systems for several motorcycle applications. I would e-mail them and ask them what they were.

I've never heard of this brand Radar Detector so no experience with it.

Maybe you could fabricate a cradle that would screw into the extra mirror screw hole.

Or picture a block of wood sitting on top of the clutch resevoir,the same width and depth, about 2 inches high. then cut out the radius from the top of the block such that the detector would rest in the cut out. Then line the block and the radar detector with industrial velcro. Obviously you would need to drill 2 hole in the bottom of the block to screw it to the top of the clutch reservoir.

Glenn

Hope you find what you need.


I had velcroed my Valentine1 to the top of my brake reservoir but it was basically flat on the bottom not cylindrical.

Thanks for that Glenn, yes that seems the most likely position alright. I have had the Cruisader on my ZRX1200 for about 12 months, it has proven very effective so far, more effective than a friends Escort i.e. detects earlier, I think the reason for this is the separate antennae units are more sensitive than the composite type units. They are positioned front and rear of the bike Tony.

Velcro, my friend is the word of the future, v-e-l-c-r-o.

A dab on top of the brake fluid reservoir, a dab on the bottom of the Cruisader, and you are good to go. I addeded a velcro strap to go around the reservoir and detector (in my case a Valentine V1) for additional security (mostly when parked). Works like a charm, easy on easy off, very secure. When parked I park my helmet over the V1 for additional security, out of sight, out of mind. :ale:

Glenn, bikerschim,

got the job done OK, fitted the console to the redundant mirror port, the brain was fixed out of sight to bolts which secure a shield under the steering stem, the additional laser antenna was secured to the number plate bolt at the rear and LED was tied to one of the cockpit cables. My mechanic did the whole job with the hardware supplied with the device and not one hole was drilled in the bike.
