OK, I can't figure out where the hell I'm gonna mount my remote visual for my Valentine 1 detector. Anybody done this yet or have any ideas?

Using a stem stand to mount the V1 on you can't see the LEDs on the main unit very easily. The remote visual can be mounted at any angle and allows you to see all the LEDs.

does the double bubble give you clearance to put it on top of the cluster?

if not.. might be time for "legal speeding".

Nope won't clear the gauges. Yeah, looks like the Legal Speeding mount may be the way to go. BTW, you find a bike yet? :D

Actually, the arrows do help. Mostly, I want to see the band and signal strength though.

For now I just went and bought a $10 Rat Shack radar detector mount with suction cups and hacked it up to fit the remote visual. Maybe I'll come up with something better later.

Just do the whole spray painting the inside of the wind screen and then you won't even see the suction cups...

I have an Idea??????????

Make a bracket that put's it in the proper position for viewing, and then paint your shield like other's have done here at the forum(do a searh if you haven't seen them. But you would need to leave a circle or something for the detector to pick-up the signals. ?? What do you think

Don't know if paint will screw up the detector. Besides, I like to see through the screen.

That's not the detector. That's just a remote unit that mimics the display off the actual detector.
