Yea its call twist harder with right hand. But they make one that has a led for your helmet, never used one. But if you Google motorcycle radar detector they are everywhere. I have heard good things about the v1

Also heard good things about the v1. I just cant justify 500$ on a product that hasnt been updated in 10 years. There HAS to be better tech out there since they came out.

I have a escort and V1 i use in my cars, and had a mount for the escort on my 1000rr when I used to ride on the street. It has a headphone jack, which worked well. I just ran a headphone extension cable from the detector to the seat (female end sticking out between tank cover and front of seat). I'd pick up a cop long before he could see me, probably 3 or four curves before I got to them on the dragon. The can only use laser when they have a fairly long straight section of road.

Don't waste your money on a cheap detector... there is a big difference.

I have one on both my bikes, and another in my car. all are hard wired into the vehicle. the display pictured is down and to the left.

the bikes have a speaker under the seat, but the display is in my field of vision and I can pick up a change in the screen in my peripherial vision.

All escort and the two on each of my bikes, have gps, so when you encounter radar, the display flashes your speed as well as what type of radar is being used. also both my bikes have a laser (lidar) jammer on them. I only get caught these days with pacing. but I fight those tickets and have won all my speeding tickets in the last 8 yrs.

Yes and yes to your questions.

Hard wired, made the mount with Velcro attachment to be removable when parked or driving truck. I think it's in a perfect position.

9500ix is the cordless.

I have the escort 9500ci (blue LED display) on my zx6r, and the 8500ci plus (red LED display) on my k1rr. the 8500ci is what is pictured above, + laser jammers (not pictured).


Not cheap to buy it and install it hard wired to your bike. but it is much smaller, the display, than the wireless. I've never had a LEO notice any of my hardwired radar detectors (or laser jammerts) car or bike. it's illegal to have a laser jammer in CA, and usually if the LEO sees you have a radar detector, it's an automatic ticket, even though it's legal to have one.

the 8500ci plus is all you need. the 9500ci is top of the line, and the only difference is that if you pass the same spot with radar or lidar, it will automatically mark the location for you as a radar trap. the 8500ci plus doesn't do that. most of us ride around the same places and know where the LEOs hang out.

anyway I wouldn't ride without it. been with one since 2005, and honestly I feel naked without one. I know people hate the audio (in a car), or all the beeping and such, but for me, it's worth it. speeding tickets in CA start at $400. The newer models, you hardly get any false alarms, esp. if it has gps, it'll lock out the false radar reads.

I've only had my 1krr for a yr, and I've been pulled over 3x on it (pacing), and haven't gotten a laser hit yet, but gosh, radar hits, at least 6.
