DIY: GoPro Mirror Mount

I was looking to buy a mount, but the prices were out of this world for a piece of plastic...

And the one that mounts behind the visor was entirely useless, since my visor is dark smoke.

Here's what I came up with, total cost $1.27 CDN :)

What you need:
- A Dremel
- 4 washers (I used stainless steel)
- One M6 10mm head bolt
- 2 thick washers (I used some that came with my bolt kit) so that the bolt can be tightened, thus locking the GoPro mount in place.

Start by taking off your left mirror.

Then you'll need to use your Dremel and shave off a slim piece of the GoPro mount, as shown in the photos, this will allow it to fit flush against the mirror.

Once that's done, put one washer under the mount, 2 in the middle and 1 above it. Followed by 1 thick washer, 1 thin and 1 thick again.

Insert the 10mm head M6 bolt and lock everything in place.

The reason I chose the mirror mount is because it is a solid front piece on the bike, therefore less vibrations.

Enjoy!

Likewise, that's why I came up with this way of mounting it.

I made something similar a year or two back. Works very well, however the action cam needs a case/cover as it sits directly in the wind blast.

I made something similar to yours a few days ago, I didn't like the look of it though, so I didn't even bother finishing it.


In the end, you're still using the tape, my goal was to not tape anything to the bike and my camera is in a case :)


My first mount:

Looks good. Might have to try something like this.

I drilled a small hole in my windscreen and screwed the tripod mount through it, however there was vibration.

So its back on the side of my helmet with a curved sticky. :-)
