So you trust suction cups?

that whole video was basically shot with it. plus the wheelies and stoppies you didnt see.

i also use it on my 450x in 20 degree weather where the number shroud should be adn on the rear fender...lots of speed and bumps on the ice/snow and it doesn't fall off

so, yes, i trust it completely

I use the suction cup, (not a go pro) on the tank looking forward for track days, kinda like a cheap data logger, with a clear screen. Only drawback is that it gets in the way on the straights when you try and fully tuck.

Tested the suction cup and it's okay up to 299kmh!!! Just don't forget to PUSH the tab and PULL the lever.

No issues with damaging the paint using the suction cup. Been using it for than 20x so far....track days and weekend rides.

I'd like to be able to bolt on a camera mount when I take the mirrors off for the track. Anyone seen a vendor with a mount like that?

No but it gives me an idea.... I bolt my cam to my mirror when I have then on. Bet o could attach a ram mount to the mirror mounts with the mirrors off. Hummm

I received a email from someone who has custom GO-Pro mirror mounts for a GSXR but didnt see on for a BMW, I'll look through the deleted email's to see if I can find it. Maybe they can make or offer one for the S1.

I've tried 6+ different ways with the GoPro suction mount on the tank and can't get usable footage. Too shaky. Even tried a rubber band harness to stabilize it better. Didn't help. I really like the dash in the lower frame but the vibrations are killing me. Today was the last attempt. Another waste of time.

Now I've decided the stickies ARE removable (YouTube hair dryer instructions) so I just put one on my helmet and one on the fairing low left.

Tomorrow we'll see how it goes.

I have the GO PRO 3 and I have been using the stickie mount. Try putting the stickie below where your mirror attaches to the fairing on either the left or right side. Very stable video
