Nice videos. I'd never have thought that out under the headlight would be so smooth. I'll give it a go once I get a camera. What sort of mount were you using?

Now just need a way of mounting a microphone near the air box and out of the wind to capture that sexy V4 induction sound  :152:

I tried mounting the microphone near the airbox but all I got back was alot of noise, I dont think it was wind noise I think it is more vibration. I am still experimenting with the mic....I overlayed music because the noise of the engine did not sound good due ti mic position...

For the mounts..I used an alloy billet style mount I shall post pics up this weekend

I had also tried using the nose as a mounting but found it too flexible, I got a lot more bounce than I see in your videos.  I never got time to go back and reinforce the mount, still on my list of things to do.  I am currently using the suction cup mount on the left side of the fairing just aft of the turn signal, the camera ends up almost under the turn signal.  I found this is the most rigid part of the fairing.  The mic is clipped up behind the fairing near the headlight.

What are you using for a camera?  I have a Drift HD, works OK, not absolutely enthralled...  http://www.youtube.com/user/SwissVFR

I find suction cup mounts give far too much bounce. I use an alloy Billet ring that the camera locks into. I will take some photos as soon as the weather improves
