    I believe Jim mounted his camera (not sure if it was gopro) to the watertight compartment. A lot of people have had success mounting the camera to the handlebar pad.

    IMO use a tether as back up

    I've mounted one on just about every flat surface you can think of. I've always just used the suction cup mount.
    See my You Tube page for some of the video's;
    http://www.youtube.com/user/havasuphoto

    I even mounted it to a 100mph Cracker Box boat...facing forward, then reward...and when you see the g-forces it was taking in just this one video, and it stayed attached, you'll be amazed;


    Here is the same camera, with suction cup mount, on various parts of the FZR, plus helmet, and on the end of a stick;


    Also, use the Search function of this website, type in Go Pro, and see the other posts. There is one main one where we post are video's and questions.
    Use setting R3 for the widest angle, and smoothest slow motion(720/60 frames per second), or, for a narrower field of view, and slightly higher quality(not really noticeable on the internet), use R5(1080/30P). I used the R3 setting for virtually all my video's as I find that the 60 frames per second gives me the smoothest video with vibration. However, when the boat is really bouncing/shaking, don't use slow-motion(using a video editing program), as it just makes it worse. Watch the second video, and you'll see what I mean.

    You can also use it on the mirror (the suction cup, that is). That's what I do.

    Tried that on my RXT-X and the video was unwatchable. The mirrors just shake to much. Same with the hood on the X-boat.....it's jiggles a little to much. The Yamaha's not bad though. Except Follmer's boat doesn't have mirrors

    you guys running without mirrors, would it be possible to make a mount utilizing the factory mirror holes?
