    Dash cams on Trophy's

    So I have looked using the search platform for any info on fitting Dash cameras to the Trophy, there seems to be none, so my question is has anyone fitted dash cam type cameras to the front/rear of their Trophy, as opposed to a Hero/Drift camera.
    More to the point what were the results like, and was the cost of the set up reasonably priced, thanks for any info.

    I use a Roadhawk Bullet R+ mounted under the headlight. I recently bolted the mount to the panel there after I accidentally pulled it off when I caught the cable (but that was after 3 years). Mine has been exposed to all sorts of weather, including the worst that a British winter can throw at it, over 3 years or more, and it continues to work fine. Obviously it helps to clean the lens every now and again as it is so exposed.
    It is hard-wired into the glovebox 12V power socket.
    The video is usually clear enough to make out car number plates, though maybe not the complete number in individual frames.

    I have the Innovv K1 on my bike. The DVR hangs every so often, enough that it's unreliable. The good thing is that it is a two camera system.

    I see that Innovv has a new K2 camera system that has bullet cameras instead of the squares the K1 had. I'm hearing that the K2 is more reliable. I will almost certainly be getting it to replace the K1.

    AZBob,

    Had a look at the Innovv K1 system, unfortunately it's a bit out of my price range, I've looked at other cams but they are either so cheap or very expensive, there doesn't seem to be a middle range of cameras.

    I will have a look at the Roadhawk Bullet R+ that ShaunDW uses, and another look on Amazon/e-bay to see if anything else comes up.

    Thanks.

    Hi Guys,

    i have one of these

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Motorcycle-Camera-Motorbike-Dual-HD-Dash-Cam-Video-Wide-Angle-DVR-Camcorder-GPS-/173356183105

    which works ok. The only annoying thing i find is that it saves portions of video in 1 min 23 seconds blocks... not sure if i can change that as i've not really given it the time to play around. The cameras are subtle with enough cable to cable a house!!!!!  Picture quality is pretty good and you can roatate the cameras in their housing if you nee to mount them at an angle.

    have a look

    I went with the Garmin Virb - not cheap but comes with a couple of Mounting Options,
    and the ability to Start and Stop recordng from my Gamin 595 Touch Screen.

    I have a mount on top of my helmet, or can switch to a Fixed Mount
    that I screwed to the underside of the Horizontal panel underneath the Headlight.

    As I never use the radio, only music from usb, I turned out the antenna and screwed in a fitting little bolt and two nuts. Out of a piece of lexan I made a small base that I could screw on the bolt in the antenna. Upon this you can glue one of the adapters of the camera (Go Pro in my case). The images are perfect, the camera sees what the driver can see.
    I also tried a mount on the crashbar. This place gives a kind of "tunnelvieuw" because the top of the image is the mount of the mirror.
    Antenna gives the best result in my opinion.
