GoPro Mounting Locations + mounts

The track I ride at now allows filming which they didn't previously. Ultimately I'm looking to mount on the around the rear cowl to get feedback on body position. Has anyone mounted a gopro to their 2015 bike yet?

I'm going to fit one mount on the tank. The area is curved slightly so I'll have to see if the flat or curved mount works best. Never really like the rear view idea.

Yeah the tank is concave on the centre line. The rear mount is more for educational purposes. I currently dont have mounts so let me know how you go mate. Cheers

BUMP For some new ideas now that we've had these bikes awhile.

I want to capture more with my GoPro this year but I'm not real stoked about a permanent GoPro sticky mount anywhere on my bike. (maybe the underside of the tail where its all black plastic)

One option of course is to use the suction cup mount, or "handle bar" mount from GoPro. My real goal is to make a mount that will utilize the slots cut out in the top triple clamp and allow me to somewhat easily remove the mount at my discretion. If this mount turns out decent, then maybe I'll make a few extra if anyone here is interested.

On top of the above plans; I'd love to hear what your favorite places to mount a camera on your bikes, what angles you're shooting etc.

Have you looked at Techmount?

I've used these and like the stem mount.

I don't know if the threads match, or maybe you can use a bolt that does match, but pull the passenger pegs and screw one of these in:



Install this on your GoPro:



And finally connect the two with a RAM arm:



It's a flexible design you can place it pretty much in any position.

I ended up using a few Zip Ties and stuck the go pro right on the triple clamp beside the key looking right at the speedo and out the front windscreen. Worked great and was stable and quiet enough not being in the wind. And its two seconds to remove and no sticky tape.

If you want POV you should try the helmet mount from ProShotCam proshotcam

proshotcam - media

I use on my Shoei and it gets good perspective and does not block vision. Made for off road, but it works very well on track days.

I just stuck a flat mount on the triple clamp its a pretty good view. Whenever I have tired for view from the rear looking forward the video was boring. You could see body movement but not a wide enough view to work for the viewers.

That's the view that I want. Sorry, but what's a "on the triple clamp" ?. Can you post a picture of the mount location please?

The camera is mounted on top of the triple clamp. You know, that big piece of cast aluminum that holds the forks? Look down, it's the black thing with the slots.

The flat plate that connects the forks and the steering head. Just to the right of the key. I put the camera and the mount together and pressed it in place so to position the placement of the mount between the key and the brake reservoir (its a little tight) I will post a picture tonight (if I remember) ;-)

I've found that this is the absolute best and most ideal standard mounting position, right on the front chin section of the helmet.

You get the best view of everything from here with the most view flexibility.

A flat GoPro mount on the triple clamp works very well, as long as you don't mind the instrument panel. Video is quite stable. Just make sure you safety wire or ziplock the flat mount down.

I have been using the RAM mount aswell that sits inside the nut on the triple. You can adjust the height or move it forward or back. I like the fact that I can see my right hand for braking and throttle input references on the track.

Here is a short clip to give you an idea:

Great view! Does the camera hit your helmet if you tuck in for long straights?
