Radar Detector

Hi Almighty Forum,

Has anyone hard wired a radar detector onto their Brutale 800 (Preferably 2017)

How did you do it and what tools/materials do i need.

I am researching into hooking one up to switched (turns on when the key switch is on and off when key switch is off)

Thanks

I have used the first one on this list for another project. It is the least sophisticated of the bunch.

Today, I would use one of the last three on the list....especially if dealing with a can-bus system.

My Rivale came with a detector fitted, its hard wired to the battery, so just use the the power button on the unit. My Multi is hard wired, but my 1290GT came with a cigarette lighter type fitting, so its a plug in job, and turns on and off with the ignition.

Radar, as in speed detection radar?
Do any forces still use them, and if they do surely once they pick up a signal and you notice it itís gonna be too late anyway??

Yes, speed detection warning device, a good one can give you up to a 2 second warning time, time enough to slam on those brakes. Also I've been passing long lines of traffic, and it can warn you if theres an un marked car hiding amongst the vehicles. i have 4 such devices, one on each of my bikes (3) and one for the wife car. Oh PS, I'm on 80 demerit points from 2 big speeding tickets, sometimes when coming around a corner, theres no time to slam those brakes on.
cruiser and Claude like this.

I would think that with the proliferation of cars using RADAR technology to give lane departure warning, blind spot warning, brake application from following close, etc. the use of RADAR detector would be annoying with falses.

Interestingly enough, only some cars equipped with radar sensors set off the radar detector in my car. Seems GM products mostly. I guess it is different operating frequencies.

Police are now using laser for speed detection in most places. When your laser detector goes off you just got busted.... Good news though is that motorcycles are very hard for the laser guns to "see".

Hi Fellow Kiwi,

Do you have any idea if i can use the battery charger port in the rear seat to supply power?

Hard Wiring to the battery is my last option as that requires lifting the tank off.

Thanks,
JayJ
