gopro mount

I'm sure some of you would have a gopro camera or GPS, anyhow I thought some might be interested in another mount idea for a gps or gopro using the RAM system.  I tried to mount a normal RAM gps mount on the bars but not a lot of room but I found the threaded ball with a 10mm x 1.25 thread to fit the clutch pertch where the standard mirrr fits. This allows me to switch between GPS & gopro quickly, I can move the gopro around on any angle for the times you don't want the cam on your helmet.

yes these are nifty little mounts.
available in left hand or right hand thread for the TTR.

just a word of caution, as mentioned in http://ttr250.activeboard.com/t53397480/apc-14-day-rally-18-may-2013/

I used one of these to mount a plastic mirror and after a few thousand kilometers of dirt roads it cracked off at the base.
Of course your mileage may (literally) vary, but it is something to watch out for.

It is an interesting direct to bar mount that you are now using for the mirror.

They also do a cool mount that goes on the brake reservoir, sorry don't have a picture or link but it's on there Web site, might have to get ine now just to see exactly how good. Already have a road angel mounted on a ram mount but don't like position

 I tried my GPS RAM mount in several positions but was not happy with any, the bars I had on the XR had a longer sweep up giving a little more room & surface area to mount stuff.

I might end up replacing the bars with a set like I had on the Honda & that might overcome some of the issues, this would also allow me to have 2 RAM mounts on the bars for the GPS & Gopro

 

Cheers Terry

I have a SONY HANDYCAM CX190E full h.d which I mounted on a 6 or 7mm s/s rod about 200mm long that is threaded both ends. one end passes through a hole that is already in your clutch lever housing. use nylocs either side of the housing to lock the rod in place. the other end is threaded to accept a JOBY BALL MOUNT you can buy in camera stores. the camera attaches onto the mount using the tripod socket in the base via a quick detachable sliding mounting plate. to make my mount rigid I first covered the rod with an aluminium tube that was then covered with numerous layers of heat shrink tubing that should end up about 20mm in diameter and attached an adjustable bmx bicycle handlebar brace, one end clamped to the handlebars next to the left hand clamp and the other clamped around the heatshrinked rod using a suitable collar. to eliminate fore and aft movement I used cable ties in various positions. the only problem with the SONY is you have to have the viewfinder opened all the time it is filming although you can rotate it 360 degrees. best used screen facing the roadway. with steadycam activated you can get pretty good vision. just make sure you don't get it wet.
