How to Mount Your Radar Detector to Your Motorcycle
The main benefit of having a radar detector installed on your motorcycle is that it enables you to win back your freedom of the open road, without the worry of being hassled by the man.
Plastic or Aluminum?
Because of this our Techmount mounting systems are crafted through our patent CNC process right here in the U.S.A., using aircraft grade billet aluminum.
We are so confident in the durability of our mounts that we offer our lifetime snapshot warranty on our mounts against defects in material or workmanship.
So if you ever have a problem with our mounts, just snap a photo of it and text or email it to us. – An industry first.
Ugly vs. Clean
I’m also sure that you take quite of bit of pride in your motorcycle right?
Our various motorcycle mounts are crafted with your make and model motorcycle in mind so they will look like they are a part of your bike, rather then something that was bolted on.
Suction Cup Mounts Lose Suction!
We receive hundreds of horror stories each month from customers who have used those suction cup mounts who ended up damaging their phone, GPS and their cameras because their suction cup had lost its suction and it fell onto the roadway.
So if you value your radar detector as much as we do, one type of mount you should avoid using on your motorcycle are suction cup mounts.
Where to Mount Your Radar Detector
We offer the widest assortment in the world of various mounting systems that include center mounts, control mounts, stem mounts, fairing mounts, handlebar mounts, fork tube mounts and mirror mounts.
Our most popular radar detector mounts are our handlebar mounts. We have two versions, one fitting handlebars from 7/8” of an inch, to 1 1/4” and then the 1.5″ to 1.75″ version.
You can place your handlebar mount anywhere the entire length of your bars and unlike our competitors handlebar mounts we do not use U-bolts or cheap plastics.
Our second most popular mounting system is our control mount, which attaches to either the clutch or brake side. To install your control mount all you need to do is remove your factory pinch bolts and replace them with ours.
One clear advantage of selecting the control mount is that on most motorcycles your camera will be to the side of your windshield and your camera is within easy reach.
