Where to mount the cameras:
The easiest spot for the front cam is right beside the headlights, using a spacer or the rubber pads.
It gives a clear view to the front. But due to the vibrations of the motor, I got a lot of jello effects when riding above 5000 rpm.
So I decided to find a new spot, which is right above the foglights. The Sheet I mounted the camera on is of 3mm Aluminium. This way, I get much, much less vibrations and jello effects.
And the camera still has a clear view.
For the rear cam I made a small sheet to use the screws which holds the topcase plate. Yeah...I should replace the screw with a longer one.
Where to mount the GPS module
Well....the GPS module does not have the best reception. Therefore it really needs a clear view to the sky and should be mounted leveled. Surprisingly, there are not many spots on the Tiger 1200 where the GPS module will fit. So I mounted in the cockpit right behinde the windshield.
How to do the wiring.
The best way on the Tiger 1200 to get the wires from the front to the back/under the seat , is under the fairing on the right side. The left side is occupied by the air intake, so there is no space.
For this I routed the cables to the right side and fixed them with a adhesive pad.
After that, the cables go along the frame, fixed by zipties. The coiled cable is from my radio device. The camera cable is right below (behind the frame).
The wire of the rear cam are easy to install. I simply put the on the left side, fixed with zipties, to the front till I was able to get under the seat.
Where to get switched power
On the Tiger 1200 (2018) are three ways to get switched power. The first two of them are under the rack.
The left plug is for the USB port in the back. The right one is for the powered topcase. If you don't have one, the plug is closed with a blindplug. Both of them get power if the engine is running.
The third option is a six pin connector right under the rear seat (sorry...no picture). There are five pins in it.

I personally used the plug for the USB port, as I don't need USB.
Where to mount the K2 and the power module
I decided to mount the K2 on the side using some velcrotape. That way the K2 does not take many space and gets some damping. The power module I used some adhesive tape to mount it on the other side.
If you want to use a relay to power the K2...there is enough space for the relay right under the cover beside the battery.
