I installed the K-40 Undetectable rader detector system this weekend on my K5. It turned out really nice. I tested it Saturday night. It is SWEET. I changed the LED to a 10 Candella super bright LED. It alerts me quite well. If there is any interest about the install or where the parts ended up, let me know and I will do a write up on it with pictures.

I have an 8500 installed on my K5 using CycleActive mounts... works well, but needs a screamer (or other warning device,... leds?).

i had the nice Escort wireless one for about 30 mins on my k4... only took 1 100mph wheelie to shake it off (and i had bolted it to my windscreen too...)

i definitely want to see how u got it hooked up - and keep us updated on its performance (read: if u still get lasered, i wanna hear about it)

radar detectors are no good for laser radar as once you get hit with the laser it is to late. It works for the in car radar systems very nicely though. aka K band at least for here. I would be interested to see your write up and pics!!

I also got the "Laser Difuser" thing. It is supposed to send "unreadable" readings on the laser radar gun from a distance. Once close to the radar gun, it can get the speed. I will try to get the write-up done this weekend. The detector is still working great. Just one LED on the dash that is bright as sin and one hand on the throttle!
