Go Pro - where to fit?
« on: January 06, 2015, 09:47:49 am »
Hi there,

I was given a GoPro for Christmas and wondered if anyone has fitted one to their Triumph Trophy?  If so how did you do it?

Thanks Chris

Camera mounting on the Trophy for best results

I stuck mine next to where the sat nav mount goes.  It hits the screen slightly as the screen retracts, but I'm used to it now and is protected by the screen.  If you want something fancier, then RAM balls & joints are a good way to go.

I use a ram ball mount screwed into the levers where the mirror mounts are.  Then the rest is ram stuff to extend the camera up to look out of the screen with the appropriate ball on the bottom of the camera.  I also cut the waterproof box (I know now it isn't waterproof) so I could power it from the USB from glove box (I use cigarette to USB as I have Ipod in usb slot) and I got some flat USB cables that easily come out and do not stop the box closing.

John are talking about the hole that the rubber plug is in next to the mirror?

I've used the glue pad and placed on the front mudguard!  I am a bit worried about it becoming unstuck and loosing the camera but it appears pretty well fixed.  I will send pictures when the sun comes out.   Cheers Chris

I just used a helmet mount. That way to saw what I saw and I liked that it showed part of the bike in every video.

Chris

I have had a go pro for a while. Tried various mounts and locations. Settled on this on in the photos. It is handy for special sections but also for watching the muppets. I also take the camera out of the case and have made a mount for my Van dash using velcro on the bottom of the camera. So is dual purpose.

I have RAM mount and more go pro sticker mounts.
