    Mirror.
    « on: 2013-01-16 22:28:43 »
    I'm looking to mount a Ram Ball at the front of the bike for a camera.


    My thoughts are to take the mirror off the bike and put a bracket under it, using the mirror as a fixing point.


    Anyone taken the mirror off ?, and can you run me through the method of dis assembly please.


    Cheers.

        I've got a Drift HD (The short one)


        Got a clamp around the mirror stem at the moment, and it looks naff.

          Is there no suction mount for it?


          I use the GoPro and it is rock solid but doesn't mean messing with any bracketry or drilling/cutting the bike

            Where on the front of the bike do you stick it ?


            I've got the Drift suction mount which is great stuck on the top of a pannier looking backwards.


            I wasn't going to drill the bike. Was hoping to clamp a stainless piece of sheet with a ram ball tig welded to it between the mirror and the bike somehow.

              For direct front I attach to the bottom of the wind screen.  For off centre on a fairing panel.  Works well on pannier top and sides too, as well as the top box.


              The screen mounting gives a very 'real' world feel when viewed

                I will have to give the screen mount a go.


                I did look at that, but thought the screen would vibrate to much when out on the road.


                Cheers Mr RT.

                  Mirrors come off easy.  Take the speaker cover off.  One screw is hidden behind the air ram flap the other ones are in view. Cant remember if you then have to undo the speakers themselves but if so they are easy too (cant check garage is frozen up)  The mirror arm is held on with two bolts.  Loosen them and just slide the mirror out.

                  Please post a pic if you make a mount. Clearwater lights is making a mount for their lights that goes under the mirror waiting to see what it looks like.
