So my radar detector died, yes after three years hard wired to the Bike, it died. It was a long slow ride back from Harrison
The long and short is after time the little phone plug corroded I guess after numerous bike washes. Can anyone tell me why a phone plug and not just a normal plug like cel phones use??
Anyway, its a bitch to find the plug...yes I could of jimmy rigged a phone line...but I need it fused...and the piece of mind its going to work.
I went to Lordco in Surrey, where I got it last time, 3 years ago...they looked at me like I was talking Spanish. Wouldn't even bother trying to look it up. They sent me to The Source...again the Spanish stare and yeah good luck finding that.
Next called up the Lordco in Burnaby on Edmonds...yeah buddy I'll look it up and call you right back...never heard from them.
I called Lordco on Kingsway, a nice girl named Tabitha answered, hang on Ill put you on hold and see what I can find.
1 minute later yup for the Escort radar detector hard wire kit, YES that's the one.
She said ok Ill order it for you, its 30 bucks ...ouch but for three years I can live with that. Now the clincher ummm when will it come in, she says about 4 hours, I says pardon...it cant be??? I thought I was looking at being Radarless for a week.
Sure enough she called me almost at the 4 hour mark...its here come on in were open till midnight....(midnight) guess there's a bunch of backyard mechanics working till the wee hours.
Anyway amazing when a shop is run properly, I will drive to Burnaby to shop there any day.
BTW the part number is 7900105901if your looking for one.
