INNOV K1 INSTALLATION on HONDA CBF 1000 AA

PS: I want to apologies now for my English. Please be cool.  First, I want to talk about the choice. After hours of search on the net, INNOVV K1 is the only system I find which answer the two important things for me. It has all the functionalities of a “DashCam”. Recording start with power on, stop on power off. It records on SD card, cycling, erasing older files. It records front and rear in the same time. And records also all GPS data. Nothing to mind about. Just install and forget, till you needs to check images. The second point is that cams are water resistant. That could seems nothing, but when you live in a country with tempered climate, it rains sometimes. So that’s critical for me.  THE BOXNothing to add about packaging. Everything is here, right protected. Maybe a little smooth cover on the top. But all I really fine.Instructions, guides for cables, Lens protections and stickers.Cams, DVR, GPS and Button. And also a micro USB adaptationPower unit, media cables, support and screws THE INSTALLATION OF THE FRONT CAMERA The harder is to find the right place. The place who discourage to steal the cam and gave the better view, without disturbing moto functions. Triple challenge ^^. On the HONDA CBF 1000 AA the harder was the front one. I thought first about fixing it under the front fairing. But it was really complicated with a real risk of crushing between the fairing and the wheel mud guard. Not enough place, see image below.  In some way of luck, cam just fit between the two headlights.So I decide to make a hole in the fairing. Anyway, the cam is totally protected and quit invisible.    INSTALLATION OF REAR CAMERA Very much easier. As I have all the place I need to fix it. The cam is screwed by the inside. And a second hole is made for the cable.My rear fairing is not the original one. But as you can see on pic below, even on the original one there are enough place to fit the cam.  GPS INSTALLATION The important thing for GPS is not to have much things that can jam the signal.As it is very light and not water resistant, I just stick it inside my rear fairing, on top, with stickers given in the box.  The recorder unit is no more water resistant. You have to put it in a dry place. Secure from water. You have also to think about taking and putting back the SD Card. So place to act with hands. And in the end, you have to see the screen, as you’ll need to for parameters. On CBF 1000 there is sadly no place to fit the recorder. So I decide to put it in place of the HONDA user’s manual. Under the passenger’s seat. Not really easy to access but you’re sure to keep it dry.  INSTALLATION OF POWER UNIT The little power unit should be close from DVR because the USB cable is short. The first thing to do is to locate a cable powered when you turn key on. You can do that easily with a volt meter. Once located, there is a way to connect avoiding problems, and to be sure the connection won’t cause electrical malfunctions.  First, instead of « cutting » the sheath, you should get it hot with something like a lighter. When soft enough, you just had to pull it with fingers to make the copper appear.  That will protect you from cutting it inadvertently.       Now spread the copper in two equal parts, making a hole. Put the cable you want to connect thru the hole and roll it around. Now you had to weld all that with tin. No misconducts. And finally just cover all with Chatterton or any other stick tape.                   For the connection with the battery, I advise to use the right pods, adapted to your system. Weld with tin also.  Still the problem of jam. There are much equipment’s in a moto that could jam the video signal. Recently I read one of your communication about a K1 user who adds some “Ferrite” to avoid the jamming problem. http://www.innovv.com/single-post/2017/03/16/EMI-from-Motorcycle-and-Solution  Here it is. The install is finish for me because I won’t install the button as it is not water resistant but must be accessible. Not possible for me. Just had to ride and forgot it ^^. Thanks for reading and have a good trip !!. 

Mounting INNOVV K1 Dual cameras on Honda Glod wing 1800

I have attached some photo’s of my INNOVV K1 dual motorcycle camera installation on my Honda 1800 Goldwing. As the seat is too much of a hassle to remove to get at the display unit etc, I have mounted the power transformer and display unit in the right hand glove compartment. I never use it anyway and it is lockable for security when the bike is parked in public places. The display unit will also fit in there but I have left enough slack in the cables to mount the display on the R/H speaker grill if I wanted to see what was being recorded.

I also reversed the camera’s as the camera cabling worked out well that way with the cables fitted into the display unit. Front camera  Rear Camera   DVR on top  DVR in the right hand glove compartment Glove compartment is locked The converter in the right hand glove compartment

INNOVV K1 Motorcycle Dashcam Installed on Ducati Street Fighter S

I’m gonna mount INNOVV K1 Motorcycle Dashcam on my Ducati streetfighter S. I bought it to film my Holliday in Switzerland, that is in 3 weeks.   Today i installed my new innovv K1 camera set. Let me start by saying how nice everyting looks. The camera quality is great and im impressed with the sound quality. The DVR is mounted on under seat, to avoid it to get overheat, I installed 2 fans around, Once DVR starts recording, the fan will works to get air flow, to cool down DVR when riding in the hot days.    I also made the bracket for rear camera install,  Below is the riding test, I like it very much as it can track my riding route with detailed data.   

Installation of INNOVV K1 Motorcycle Camera on a BMW R1200RT Iconic

I had INNOVV K1 motorcycle camera installed on my previous bike (BMW R1200RT) and swapped them to my new bike in November 2016, the only difference was that INNOVV kindly supplied me with a waterproof lens cover for each camera. Having previously run with the cameras in the same locations on the bike for 6 months, I knew they would work well when I swapped them over. The new bike I installed them on is a 2016 BMW R1200RT Iconic (limited edition 100th anniversary model).  Front setup:I made a custom bracket out of  Aluminium Flat Bar (easily obtainable from a well known auction site), and simply bent the ends to form the exact shape to slide into the front of the fairing. I had intended to hold it in place with the two screws already in the fairing (and drilled two holes in readiness), but I found that the fit was so snug that all I needed was two 3m double sided sticky pads to easily hold it securely in place.  After riding with it for 6 months previously, it never moved once. The camera is suspended from the bracket by use of an Anti-Vibration Rubber Damper Dampening Ball, Bar (easily obtainable from a well known auction site), with a small metal tube inside to provide a level of regularity without losing the damping effect.  The camera cable is fed up through the fairing and over the engine, past the battery side and into the space under the front seat where the VCR is located. I wrapped the cable in flame retardant sheathing for added safety. Rear Setup:The rear was slightly easier. I used an M10 Grey Pivot Bracket Standoff U Steel Metal Fixing (easily obtainable from a well known auction site), and drilled a small hole in the rear rack to mount it. Fixing was by use of INNOVV supplied screws.The cable is then simply routed under the rear seat to the DVR.   DVR positioning:Housed in the left side panel, accessible via under the riders seat.   Power connection:On my previous bike I installed a PDM60 Power Distribution Module and used that to feed the DVR. I took the rear 12v din socket cable under the rear seat as a trigger for the ignition. This was an elegant solution and worked perfectly, the unit auto switching off any a few seconds from ignition turning off. It did however require slightly extra work installing the PDM and tapping into the ignition trigger wire. This time, rather than install the PDM (as I don’t need to feed lots of accessories), I went for the Optimate 90 degree waterproof DIN plug with 2 USB outlets and plugged it into the rear 12v din socket on the bike. This unit fits perfectly on this RT and provides a very neat and simple solution, with the added bonus that it is hidden from view and looks like part of the original bike setup. Powering the DVR is then dead easy; simply plug in the USB cable.   The bike powers down the rear socket when the ignition is switched off, but the Optimate unit also has a protective circuit in it that does the same if your bike doesn’t automatically switch off power when the ignition is turned off. So double protection. I didn’t install GPS or remote switch. 

INNOVV K1 Motorcycle Camera For Riding Assessment

I’m a motorcycle instructor, working in Christchurch, New Zealand.  I do riding assessments on riders who are doing licence tests. I’m primarily interested in recording a riders performance so it can be used to support my assessments, It might help solve some arguments.  I’ve just fitted INNOVV K1 Motorcycle camera to my BMW R1200RT 2013. I’d like a set of instructions as to all the settings available for the unit.

INNOVV K1 Motorcycle Camera install on Ducati Diavel 2015

NO custom parts needed. I used the brackets that come with the product. Had to find the perfect spot for it under the seat considering my EFI controller was already under there. Never fails me, perfect video quality, easy to remove DVR. I love INNOVV K1 Motorcycle Camera System and can’t stop telling people about it as well as telling them to get one.
