Placement with provided mount

26 comments

The provided mount leaves everything limited. The front end has to sit back a bit blocking full wide viewing while the back is limited in placement which blocks me from properly setting up an angle, is pointing upward a bit

First of All, nice install!

 

The Front Camera- From the picture I can see you have mount and bracket. How about to make the bracket to be longer? Does it help to move mount & lens ahead?

 

The Rear Camera- Do you have other placement to mount it?

Innovv - you should put a caution note in the packaging about mounting camera above front fender. Users should find out what the travel distance is on their front shocks and make sure that the camera does not intrude into the space above the fender below that travel distance or sooner or later the camera/mount is going to come in contact with the fender. As well, on Harley Davidson Touring bikes from 2014 and newer the Driving Light/Turn Signal bar (shown in an image below) has been eliminated. This has been, historically, been the only good place to mount a camera so it has an unobstructed view - many mount cameras on their fairings, but there is far more vibration to contend with when using that mount point.. Some effort should be made to design a suitable mount for these newer Harleys and sold as an optional part.

I'm utilizing the bracket provided. I could build my own and redesign where everything sits but currently I'm demonstrating the limitations of current equipment. The back part is limited in placement due to available mount points while also attempting to somewhat conceal the cameras.

It will be interesting to learn your own built bracket, and looking forward to seeing.

 

Many riders are skilled like you.

For the front mount I had to be a little creative, but I believe it worked out well.

 

The camera just clears the top fender when recording. Once I perform more test, it may have to be adjusted. Results pending...

 

 

 

For the rear I wanted the video to be centered with the bike. The mounts included worked out well for the rear. I'll leave the camera here, until I get pulled over for blocking the license pate. :) After all it is 'New Jersey' USA..

@Louis Goffredo Cool install!

Did you check the space/Clearance between the fender and camera?

Too late, test ride yesterday. Totally forgot about that... Lesson learned and sharing, so other don't make the same mistake.

 

I moved the camera to bar above. I'll post a picture soon.

Most touring bikes I have looked at do not have much additional space between the fender and the frame beyond the distance required to allow for shock travel. Crossover, offroad, and many sport bikes are a whole different story with lots of space beyond what is needed for shock travel. I installed an emergency light on the Driving Light/Turn Signal bar on my 2011 Harley Electra-Glide and it protruded only 1/2 inch below that bar's lowest point and it still came in contact with the fender after I hit a deep pothole I could not avoid.

Understood! Thanks for sharing.

 

Can you check what the at least the space/clearance should be?

 

I am thinking to make the mount to be a bit shorter.

It is very firmly mounted on hand bar.

 

Do you want to adjust the lens a bit? I can see the logo on lens is not top, moved a bit.

Looks cool! Ram mount is the best.

The RAM Ball mounts are available with 1/4-20 and 6mm studs. Both feel sloppy in the INNOVV mount threaded holes. Which did you use for your installation?

Skuuuz me. Thought I was conversing with the owner of the other Harley.

To match with the most mounts on market, the thread we made was 1/4-20" and the screws with such thread is not easy to be found from the local stores.

 

M6 is very common, and have been thinking to replace the 1/4-20 to be M6.

M6 and 1/4-20 are readily available here in the backwoods of Florida. Both were a loose fit.

  • Had the K2 for 5 days now. Overall its pretty good. I have a few issues that I need to look into. 1 - The lens seems to black out in the bottom (say 4 and 8 O'Clock) A bit like the lens has Glaucoma... 2 - I start my bike, put helmet, gloves on, ride off, but recording doesn't start until I am a few miles away, has to be at least 5 minutes after setting off, and maybe 6 minutes after starting the bike. An I supposed to wais 6 minutes before setting off? 3 - I have to do something with how I transfer the files, WiFi just doesn't cut it. My bike (R1250GS Adventure) automatically powers off after X minutes, not sure exactly how many, to preserve the battery, the WiFi hasn't managed to transfer a 3 minute file before the bike powers off. I cant view from the bike, stream, as it doesn't stream, it just jitters from frame to frame. I have an iPhone XS Max if that makes any difference. So far I have not been able to download or view any recording, only when setting up on live view. On the plus side, it only took 30 minutes to set up on the bike, only having to remove the tank panel. Does anyone have any thoughts on my three issues?
  • After the firmware v61 update, I noticed the blue light on the power transformer never goes off - no matter how long the bike is off. Is this normal? What could possibly be powering this other than my battery?
  • I'm at a slight disadvantage, as my bike is still in a container ship, travelling back to the US, but I'll see if I can make my point clearly enough. I've been told that if I connect to the K2, using WiFi, and the K2 App on my cell phone, that the time would be correctly set within the K2. I'm afraid that this is not correct, at least it's not correct under a few sets of circumstances. First of all, in certain parts of the world, you need to set your phone to override the current time, and set it manually. For instance, all of China uses a single timezone (Beijing time), but my iPhone got confused, and thought that there were multiple time zones, and so, I had to override the time setting. As a result, although I connected my iPhone to the K2WiFi, and then enabled the IOS app, and selected settings, I still ended up with a situation where the time on the K2 was at least 1 hour different from the time on my phone. Throughout my trip, I often tried to get the time of the K2 to be properly set, and I think that I achieved it only once. In all other cases, it was between 1 and 2 hours off. So, my question is, why don't you allow me to set the time, or select the time zone within the K2, rather than relying on using the Phone? As IOS versions on the phone change, it is likely that they'll handle time zones differently, perhaps forcing you to make odd choices in some cases, but if I was able to manually set the time zone in the K2, we eliminate any chance that the system will have the wrong time. The outcome, if you want to set the time, connect to the K2 over WiFi, set the time, and exit. It's just about perfect, and it addresses all of the possible irregularities that exist as we travel around the world. Thoughts?
