I just got a gpro2 and cash for trade for an AK (all legal) but the guy had the surf edition. I'm wondering what you guys are using to mount it and how.
ive slowly been collecting mounts. i've actually havent really used the 3m mounts. dont trust them really, altho everyone says they work well. ive only tried to use them on lexan, and they always fell off, maybe it just wasnt a good material to stick too. however i mount them on poles, chest mount, handlebar mounts, and suction cup the most often
You wouldn't be buying any extra gopro, just the mounting kits (if you google), and youtube has decent videos showing you how each angle (gas tank, front forks, rear, helmet) would look.Hahaha smartass but that doesnt tell me what people on this forum are using or where they are mounting them. Also, I already have a gopro, why would I buy another one in a different edition?
Thanks jirish617, where on the bike do you suction it?
I've cleaned them pretty well, I'm just thinking lexan RC car bodies are no good lol.You have to clean the surface before applying them - lexan and then applying the sticky side will definitely lead to it falling off. I've had one 3M mount on my tail and one on my helmet for about 9 months now without any problems - even through 100 degree track days.
That explains why little **** keeps breaking on mine! :cursin:Fun fact for you... Arai designs all of their external air/venting ducts to BREAK OFF in the event of a crash - which is another reason why they don't have any kind of "built in spoilers" like a lot of helmets. The theory behind that is that a smooth round shape will absorb and distribute energy more efficiently in the event of a crash.
I feel like that would be to small of a surface area for to adhere to, could be wrong thoughAnyone try sticking the gopro on the black plastic piece above the steering stem nut (right behind the key). I've been using the helmet mount with a safety wire to the air vent on my shoei but wanted to try somewhere on the bike but not too sure about sticking the adhesive on my tank.
Yeah that was a concern of mine. Safety wiring for the track. Kind of got the idea as someone makes a ducati steering stem nut now with a threaded hole for a ram mount. Might pull the cap off and see if somehting can be done with the cbr.I feel like that would be to small of a surface area for to adhere to, could be wrong though
