I started working on my KLR today, initially intending on replacing the hard to see, green corner dashboard turn lights with some yellow bullet LEDs. So I did that, and then I decided to make a mount for my radar detector. First thing I did is run down to Radio Shack & bought a DC "M' dash power receptacle and plug, and "N" plug. The "Ms" are for the the dash and the "N" to plug into the radar detector. When I got back I cut a rectangular peice of sheetmetal to be mounted to the fairing and then bent it to provide a platform for the detector. I wanted it mounted right behind the windscreen so that it would be protected from the rain as well as keeping it somewhat out of site (from the front) of any peace officers that might be scrutinizing my riding habits. Here's what I came up with- Here's a view from the front- the rectangular hole is for the dashboard mounting bracket. I wanted to keep it seperate from the dash to keep things simple. Then I drilled a hole in the dash & mounted the power receptacle. I wired it into the a circuit that I had ealier tied into (that is connected to the voltmeter). Then I made the power cable- I then cut some velcro to fit the detector and the mount. I drilled two holes through the fairing and the windscreen, then the mount (as I held it in place) and mounted it to the fairing using stainless steel allen head screws, washers and locknuts. Here's a side view- And here's a rider's eye view-* you can also see the new yellow bullet LEDs (very bright) and the fairing stiffening brackets I made last week (they stop the tall windscreen from buffeting). And a view through the windscreen - (flash off, a bit fuzzy) The mount is very rigid, but I may be adding a small triangular shaped brace to the bottom in the future to help keep it from flexing. I may also add 1 or 2 additional screws through the fairing to the lower part of the mount to secure the it better. We'll see. Overall an easy mod that should pay for itself the first time it fires.
