So I made a small bracket where the horn is, to mount my ez-pass. It took me about 5 minutes to do. The velcro held on when I was riding around town but i added two zip ties to be safe. I hope it reads from down there. Its not really noticeable when you stand up and look at it ( this picture is from down below) but ill probably end up painting it black. Let me know what you think.

Thanks

I hope it works. I'd test it several times before doing anything.

I'd think about mounting it real low inside a fly screen, and then painting it once I know it's permanent position.

I just register my bike on my ezpass and blow through the ezpass without having it on me, in jersey/pa/new york they run your plates, if you are registered they just charge your account... This works for bridges and single tolls, but if i was being charged per how many exits i use... Then i velcro it under my flyscreen and hold it out when passing the toll..Has been working thus far.

I put mine in the left side fake air scoop. Haven't tried to see if it registers yet though...

That's true. However, in some old school tolls like the Battery Tunnel (Hugh L Care tunnel) they have those where you have to wait for the gate to open, my ez-pass has failed every single time- even when it was pointing right in front!! A gate operator would have to always come and take the pass from me and manually "swipe" it to make the gate open. On another occasion, when I had put my gear in the backseat of a car, the ezpass got read- inside a bag, under the roof of the car! (but it was some other toll) The sensors are supposedly directly on top so I guess the pass needs to be "facing" the top somehow?

This is true, and they are pretty sensitive to how they are mounted...mine will not read if I mount it like shown in the first picture....in that pic, its actually backwards..mine needs to be mounted so that the velcro is facing front and slightly up ...just like it would be on your windshield.

Im in MD amd ive received 2 different stories. Someone in the ez pass section of the MVA once told me it matters which side of the mirror I have it mounted on a windshield, meanwhile my wife tells me it reads when she has it stored in her glove box. Dunno what to believe. Im getting tired of holding it up though so I want to figure this out.

Mine works well mounted under my windscreen and facing up. It's more visible on an indoor photo than when the bike is outside.

You could spray paint yours black and it would be ninja. If i were goign to put a windscreen on this bike that's where id put it, but i'm not.

I had a Micro Tank bag from twisted throttle (great for throwing a few things in there for every ride, like extra ear plugs, my wallet, rag for visor, insurance docs...and my eZpass) It didn't look bad or get n the way. I am selling it BTW, if anyone is interested

So have you tried it yet? I just ordered mine for the pa turnpike and am waiting for it in the mail. Would love to put it there so it doesn't fall off or go missing.

I never got around to trying it in this location. I ended up buying a Yamaha front cowl, and decided to put it there. I velcroed it to the windshield, and zip-tied a tether to it, just in case the velcro fails. Also, if it doesn't register, i can reach in and pull the ez-pass out at the toll booth, and not worry about dropping it or losing it.

Here's the ez-pass location

Tether has a carabina attached hooked over the brake line

I still waiting for delivery of my (light smoke) Puig Flyscreen. Sticking the Pass to the inside seems to be a Natural:D

I finally did some thorough testing of mine hidden under the Yamaha front cowl. Worked everytime
