Don't waste your money. Everyone I've talked to who has tried them said they are worthless.

I've heard rumors about the police starting to use a different band for their dopplers. Apparently all detectors and jammers will be useless against it. :eek:

You could always use RAM (RADAR Absorbant Material) paint, like the stealth fighter. :D

The "jammers" are worse than useless, they are fraudulent. I remember an article several years ago, where they took apart a jammer mfg by Rocky Mountain something-or-other, and all it contained was some diodes & leds. The company responded by changing its name to Comtrad, and continued marketing the same worthless stuff. Clue: If you are looking at a full-page ad in USAToday for a variety of electronic conveniences, and jammers are mentioned, do not order from this company. The name has changed at least three times, but they still use the same ad layouts. I use a cordless Escort Solo detector velcroed to my mirror, and it has saved me at least three times in the last month. There may be legitimate jammers out there, but until I see one tested by a reputable, independent source, I won't be spending any money on one.

When I first read this, I said "How in the heck do you mount a radar detector to a sportbike mirror?" Then I remembered the ZX12R's mirrors. ;)

Jammers are a big WASTE of your money!

Use a Valentine One if you insist on having some kind of "protection"

I just use the throttle for protection.

Peace!

There ARE real radar jammers but i think ud bee lookin at several hundred, if not into the 1G mark for anything that actually worked half effectively. The technology is 1940's stuff, but with Ka and active frequency switching in the cops guns and laser and LIDAR and this and that whats the point. You cant beat all that stuff the cops have. Not to mention it is HIGHLY illegal. The big boy jammers will reportedly cause u to show up on airport radar. i dont think we need to be messin around with stuff like that.

Verdict: WASTE OF $$

Leslie, what ROFLMAO? No shortage of space on them mirrors, Pete!! Works out pretty good, though. Mounted on my left mirror, I can sit safe in the right lane, with just the mirror sticking out past whatever is in front of me, and pick up radar before they have a chance of tracking me.

Hi Everyone-

The one nice part about radar is that it "seeks" the largest object and reports the speed. In theory, if you are passing a tractor-trailer at 85 mph and the truck is doing 65 mph, the speed of the truck is what would register on radar.

If the officer is completing paperwork or reading reports, he or she wouldn't get the audible alarm to observe nearby traffic.

The frontal profile of a motorcycle and rider is pretty small when compared to that of the SUVs and triple-trailers littering our highways and byways.

In known speedtrap areas, I tend to run in close proximity to buses and large trucks.

Your mileage may vary.... :)

In NC the charge is "Improper Equipment". This the charge you plead down to to get off of a speeding ticket. I've had 5 in 6 years, no convictions.

Don't waste money on Detectors and jammers they dont work against VASCAR(distance/time systems).

Get a lawyer 150-350 plus court cost. Or get to know your clerk of courts(donuts, etc..).
Happy Riding ,
Ben

Jammers

Radar jammers only work if you line the inside of your helmet with tin foil. DUH! I thought everyone knew that.

Aluminum foil liners also keep aliens from taking over your thoughts.
