JodaTech Weatherproof Radar Detector Covers-V1 Done!!

UPDATE:5-2-11...Taking orders for all versions!!...updated pics in post #22


UPDATE: 4-04-11........VALENTINE V1 COVER COMPLETED!!!! STAY TUNED FOR PICTURES THIS EVENING. Taking orders at the end of the week

Hello everyone. I just recently applied for an LLC (JodaTech). I have been making different motorcycle aftermarket parts for awhile now..anything from aluminum risers to fiberglass wind deflectors and plexiglass windscreens. Recently I bought a 09 Buell Uly and it came with some extras. The one extra it cam with was a radar detector with a "radar box" to keep it out of the elements. Well....I wasnt a fan of the was big and clunky and the detector moved around inside quite a bit, and the audio cord needed to be ziptied in place to prevent it from coming out. Not to mention it had velcro everywhere to keep it in place. I looked around for a long time for an alternate solution to the "radar box", but couldnt find anything. So.....I made one myself. At the moment I have the design and prototype made for an Escort 8500/X50. It is form fitted and made from .093" Duraplex with the base made from .220" Lexan, so there is no chance of it moving around or rattling inside the cover. I will be making a cover for the Valentine 1 as well in the very near future. The cases will have a bottom plate that can be drilled to attach to any type of RAM system, or I can drill to your specs if needed. The cases will be offered in 2 styles.....A clear version, and a "Stealth" version with a black rubberized coating. I may also offer a plain matte black version (non rubberized). The first unit is going out to a fellow ADV'er for testing and design tweeking if needed.

I am posting this to gage interest and see if you guys feel there is a need/want for an alternate to the current option available. Also if your can pre-order your unit here, so I know how many I might need to make.

Depending on the final design, the cost will be somewhere between $40 and $50, and at this price it is cheaper than the "radar box".

Here are a few pictures of what the cover will look like...Keep in mind this is the first working prototype I've made and the pics were taken with my cell phone and I didnt clean up the cover before I took these pics. I will perfect the design with feedback from my "tester" and the covers will then be released to everyone.

I'm one guy....with an idea...trying to start a small business from home

Stealth Rubberized Version: (disregard crackle will look smooth....I messed up the coating on this unit)

Escort Stealth w/90* adapter.... $50
Escort Stealth wo/ 90* adapter..$45
Escort Clear w/ 90* adapter......$46
Escort Clear wo/90* adapter.....$41
Valentine Stealth.......................$50
Valentine Clear..........................$45

All Covers include Thumb Screws
I currently have 5 of each design made at the moment, more will be made this week if demand requires it.
PM me for payment options/PayPal address.

Mounted on Bike: Mounting options are unlimited...I only had a ball mount available at time of photos...any hole pattern can be made, just tell me which system you are using to mount

Stealth Final Version: $45 shipped to Cont. US without 90 degree adapter, $50 shipped with 90 adapter

Clear Version: $41 shipped without 90 degree adapter....$46 with 90 degree adapter

Thanks for your support!!! If you have any suggestions or design ideas/improvements.....just let me know.
