Question What unit plate mount for Valentine 1 to use?

Hi
What radar mount/flat plate for a V1 do you recommend? I am going to use the RAM 9mm ball and RAM short arm but which plate to hold the detector itself? Obviously the detector will not be permanently mounted.
Thanks

Thanks for the help, but I don't want any stickum on my V1. I will still use the V1 in my truck and don't want to mess that window suction cup holder. Looking for a strap type holder. Seen them but not specifically saying they fit a V1.

Thanks
Robert

Don't know why you're committed to RAM mount, did you consider alternative from Pirate? Looks like a nice way to get the V1 where you can easily see it and not have to worry about messing up windshield. More information available at: http://piratesk12site.net/Avant.htm

Just don't like the idea of a bar in front of me! I have a 2610 mounted using the RAM 9mm head and hole flange, mounted to the handlebar bolt with an extra long bolt and spacers and it is snuggled low next to the tank and I have a clear field of vision to all gauges. Have that mounted on the left side and intend to mount the V1 similarly on the right, unless anyone knows of any problems.

Thanks
Robert

Radar mount......

Recently at a dealership "tech day" a guy showed up with an '04 K12RS that had a distinctive mount. It was a simple piece of aluminum (black) shelf type thing, that connected to the two upper arm supports for the windscreen. It was approx. 1' across, and had a 4" rectangle dead center for radar unit. He did not remember where he got it, does anybody have a clue???.

Pirate to the rescue. Avant Guard Radar mount is what I believe you were looking at.

In your opinion did this block any gauges, etc?

Thanks
