INNOVV K1 motorcycle camera installed on Yamaha YZF R3

I just wanted to follow up w/ pictures of my installation. Apologies for the delayed response, but the planning phase for running the wires and suitable mounting locations took longer than expected, and I also went with a power distribution module, which you can see in one of the photos, as my switched power supply source (so I can wire in other accessories in the future) which added complexity. In addition, I wanted to test the setup for a few weeks to make sure things looked good before sending pictures of my mounting setup to you.      You can probably guess even without the photos that the Yamaha R3, being a sportbike, has very limited storage space, so compromises had to be made, but overall I’m very pleased with everything. I chose to put the unit under the seat, which requires tools to remove so it’s not easily accessible, even though it would fit in the rear storage tray because I wanted to keep the rear storage tray free for my disc lock. The storage tray with the 12V-5V DC converter visible underneath is included in one of the pictures. I forgot to take a picture of the GPS mounting position, but it’s in a concealed spot near the dash and still receives a strong signal. In the future when I take that piece off, I’ll try to remember to take a picture as well.     

INNOVV K1 motorcycle camera installed on Ducati Multistrada 1200

Here’s some sharing of how I installed my K1 riding recorder system onto my Ducati Multistrada 1200.

As soon as I have received the package from Innovv, I can’t wait to unbox it to take peek of the system. Boy I’m so impress with the built quality of the product, the beefy built of the 2 waterproofed cameras, and although the CPU/recorder unit is built of plastic, but they are good quality plastics. Overall, I’m happy with the amount of details Innovv has put it into the design for both functionality and materials. It is also very thoughtful of them to includes extra sets of 3M double-sided adhesives, cable clips and even the screws & L-shaped brackets are also well built, corrosion resisted! I can’t wait till tomorrow comes and so I could begin with the installations. Anyway, the below are the results of my installations on my Multistrada. Front camera location. L-shaped bracket is securely bolted against my Evotech oil cooler protector. It was fixed with the provided 3M adhesive, same location, but underneath the headlamp. But I don’t feel secure, and so I redo it with the L-bracket, instead.   The rear camera is installed beneath my top case mount, secured with the provided L-shaped bracket, as well. The DVR unit is installed beneath the pillion seat. Due to limited space available from Multistrada itself, this is the only place I could install my additional electronic gadgets.  The GPS/Speaker unit, on my windshield extender. The power wire are routed to my Eastern Beaver PC8 fuse box which is located under the rider seat. It is connected to the switched fuse, so that the K1 DVR will automatically switched on/off together with the motorcycle.  And lastly, here is where I install the button. Good visibility and easily accessible even during riding. 
Here are a few things which I think Innovv K1 could be improved:

1) waterproofing (or, at least splash proof) both the GPS and CPU unit

2) provide more mounting options. The L-shape brackets provided is a bit short. By providing another 2 sets of 4″ long bracket will certainly helpful.

INNOVV K1 motorcycle camera installed on Honda Goldwing 1800cc 2001

I installed INNOVV K1 Motorcycle Dashcam on my 2001 Gold wing 1800cc which has run for 183,000 miles.  as I was able to make a good connection by wrapping both cables with a rubber band. The disadvantage of mounting the camera on the mirror is, some view is lost looking to the right. If I turn the camera towards the right too much I can see part of the bodywork. No problem for me. I didn’t want to drill into the plastic on the front of the motorcycle, like one guy did.       I’m using the top left compartment to store the power converter, DVR and cables. The disadvantage of that compartment is, it doesn’t need a key to open it.   The right compartment uses the ignition key to open it, and is somewhat water proof. I chose to use the left compartment as that’s where I stored the previous camera, and the compartment is deeper than the right side. It also has the 12v hookup controlled by the ignition switch. It’s a little hard seeing the controller LED in the daylight. I might move it to an area where it’s easier to see. If one rides at night, then a brighter LED would be an irritant. Too bright. I don’t ride at night anymore anyway.
