lawnchairboy Posted April 5, 2007 Share Posted April 5, 2007 rec'd my V-1 the other day and I have been playing with it. It has undoubtedly saved me from a ticket once already, but I digress. By the way, the locals in Havelock still use good old fashioned x band... I am attempting to run it in my tankbag, I realize laser detection capabilities are absent this way. I manufactured a very hoon-esque three level lexan shelf to stash my kenwood, my fi xm, autocom unit, cell phone and v-1 with the v-1 on the top shelf of my hoon shelf in the stock 12RT tank bag. I have the remote visual in the clear map pocket and the remote audio on the top shelf with adjacent to the v-1. I have a powerlet SAE electrified tankbag set up and power the V-1 from a cigar type outlet on the inside of the tankbag. The autocom is bike powered from a switched fuse block, the V-1 is bike powered from the front accessory port. some issues: 1) The V-1 gets HOT. At the height I have it mounted in the tank bag, the lid to the tank bag is in constant tight contact with the top of the V-1. The bag itself gets very hot on the interior in the summer. I felt it after riding yesterday, VERY HOT. 2) The unit kept going through its power up routine while I was riding around experimenting yesterday... the cigar outlet power unit for the V-1 appeared to keep losing contact with the female cigar power outlet on the inside of my tankbag. 3) on occasion, and depending on the time of day and sun angle, the plastic cover of the map pocket glares enough to make the remote visual difficult to see but that is no big deal as long as the audio is functional 4) I have not been able to kick a high frequency/high pitched low volume continuous beeping sound that does not correlate with RPM's related to the audio input from the V-1. I have my cell and the V-1 on autocom part 57 isolated split input going into the autocom. I would guess that with the v1 and the autcom bike powered it is some sort of ground loop issue but I am guessing. I am going to keep playing with it but am kicking around the idea of just hard wiring the V-1 and ram mounting it, totally bypassing autocom in the process. I REALLY like having all the electronics save the GPS in the tankbag... any of you tank bag electronics gurus have any thoughts ... B RT/GT??? It looks like you had a nuclear reactor device on your 50cc tale pics.. Fernando??? .. TIA chris Link to comment
