Camera mount - GoPro

How does everyone mount their GrPro's? Basically looking for pics of the mount and camera itself or similar. I want to get a couple locations set up for this season.

Does the suction cup hold up on its own say handing on the side of the fairing or does it need to be safety wired?

Re: Camera mount - GoPro

some mount on the front fender mounting bolts, on the top of the tail section, on the pass pegs, where the mirrors would be when you remove them. top of your lid (but causes head drag and wobble (lol), and on the frame sliders.

Re: Camera mount - GoPro

I have a few locations set up so far, but with the 04 750's tail I haven't quite figured out how to get the right angle. The tail has a curve right down the center and if I mount to either side the angle will be off. Whats the trick with this particular tail? I need to look at it again tonight

Re: Camera mount - GoPro

the suction cup on the bike doesnt seem to work to good. the additional weight of the camera and the wind against it made my fairings "flex" and it was very bumpy looking in the vid. The do stick to helmet very well though. Mine has never came off my helmet(up to 100mph) but you better believe you can feel the drag of it on anything over 60mph

Gave a girl a ride for a group ride i went on and made her wear it.

Re: Camera mount - GoPro

For any section that's curved, sideways, upside-down, you have to compensate when you make the bracket. Like an erector set.

I did mine like this and it worked perfect.







I basically offset the standard mount to the right of the tail section and used this other mount config that came in the box for the camera box and adjusted the angle.

Re: Camera mount - GoPro

The GoPro has a tripod adapter which simply screws into the mount.

Ever seen a GoPro come hurdling at you down the straight???? - NOT FUN

Rock solid for trackdays and protected behind the screen.

Full tuck no issue.

Re: Camera mount - GoPro

For us trackguys the motoD camera mount is a bad idea...we loose the ability to use a front neck stands ( i use one between every session for my warmers). even if you dont use it on the regular you will have to remove it for any fork maintance. I love motoD and use yall's tire warmers but you guys need a model that doesnt go all the way through the stearing stem.

Re: Camera mount - GoPro

Thanks Wuzup and this is good info. If you don't use a headlift stand not so much an issue but our mount does secure through the triple so it may not be for every bike or rider.
