Rear-ended Recorded by INNOVV Motorcycle Camera

 XiSheng, He installed INNOVV K1 motorcycle camera on his bike and shared the above catching, You can see how rear camera capture what’s happens behind- seems like it never slow down till hit.( the lens was a bit dirty at that time, so the video is not very clearly, but it captured what happened, that is invaluable!)

INNOVV C5 Motorcycle Camera installed on BMW R1200GS

Just a few pictures of an experimental lens mount for my INNOVV C5 motorcycle camera fitted to a BMW R1200GS. It might be of interest to others out there.   I have done a Google search for 25mm clamps and am going to experiment with one design I liked if it is successful. (The clip from INNOVV is on right, The right clip was made by Infinitly of Italy)      This is the camera in the new thicker mount, it is not as neat as the OEM version but is a lot sturdier and virtually unbreakable. I am hopping because of its thick construction it will reduce the vibration.   This is the slide view of the camera in the new thicker clip, the camera can be moved back and forth with slight effort, but needs a lot of effort to rotate it because of four thin ribs in the clip that clamp the camera and stop it rotating because of the vibration.  

INNOVV C5 motorcycle camera installed on Indian Chief Dark Horse

 I attached photos of INNOVV C5 motorcycle camera install on my 2016 Indian Chief Dark horse. It was easy.  I put battery terminals on the red and black wires that crimp for easy install on the battery.   I attached the yellow wire to a grey/white adapter wire that was not being used.  Everything is stashed under the seat.   The camera is on the front fork, I did not use the included bracket, find a stock mount and attached it on the fork, and that is firm. Very easy install, and I like the design and the solid built quality.  

Motorbike Accessories you need Right Now

If high speeds and the wild wind blowing through your hair excites you, then you are definitely born to ride a motorbike. Added adrenaline rush further adds to the thrill making bike a unique vehicle for the adventure seekers. The decision of owning a high-performance bike could be quite heavy on the pocket and further addition of accessories adds to the load. But lots of useful accessories are vital for making your drive safe and exciting through your favorite terrains. Thereby, choosing correct accessories becomes critical so that you don’t end up paying more for wrong useless stuff. 

 

We picked up some really interesting and useful accessories that are a must buy for all the adventure seeking junkies:

 1. Helmet: The most important accessory to acquire if you are planning to buy a bike or have already bought is a good quality helmet. Investing in a branded, sturdy and approved helmet is the smartest thing that you can do. Driving bikes without helmets kill the largest number of people in road accidents worldwide. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in 2015, 4,976 people died in motorcycle crashes and 40 percent of the motorcyclists killed were not wearing helmets. Not wearing a helmet can prove to be fatal and many serious injuries can be avoided by using a good quality helmet.According to WHO “Wearing a motorcycle helmet correctly can reduce the risk of death by almost 40% and the risk of severe injury by over 70%.”. So investing in a good helmet even though it might be a little expensive makes complete sense. 2. Eyewear: If you have opted for an open-faced helmet or helmet without a tinted glass, then having a good eyewear becomes critical to protect your eyes from dust, water or the glaring sun. Again, the glasses should be of good quality so that they successfully do what they are meant to do. 3. Riding gear: Having a proper riding gear is also of utmost importance if you are planning to go on nomadic rides on your stylish beast. It may initially sound totally unnecessary to you, but things like proper jackets, gloves, pants, boots etc are very important. They not only add tremendously to your riding experience but also protect you in harsh weather and on uneven terrains. Also adding arm protectors, leg protectors and armor vests are recommended on long journeys to protect you in case of any mishaps. God Forbid! 4. Toolset: Seriously, just like the helmets a well-equipped tools set is not an accessory but a necessity. It can be a lifesaver if any time your motorbike decides to break down in the middle of nowhere. In the long run, it might even save you quite a few bucks once you get familiar with your bike and get handy at repairing it yourself. 5. Camera: Now this here is a super cool accessory for your shiny new bike. If you love to capture memories while riding then INNOVV C5 Motorcycle Camera System is one of the best buys in this array. It is reasonably priced, compact in size and comes with an aluminum DVR module, USB 3 integrated heavy-duty cable, and a dedicated protective power supply in the form of a weatherproof 12-5V DC converter. It can be effectively used in harsh weather conditions as its lens is water and dust resistant. It can be easily mounted on the bike and has many amazing features. 6. Crash protection: Road trips, either long or short might involve occasional unfortunate incidents such as crashes. Once you have protected yourself with all the necessary gear, it becomes crucial to protect your precious bike too. Protective gear like frame sliders, bar ends, swingarm spools, fork sliders etc are essential in protecting your bike even after a minor crash. This initial investment could save you from much higher expenses after any such mishap. 7. Bike covers: However useless it may sound but this humble piece can be quite handy and useful in protecting your bike from severe weather conditions when you are out on a long nomadic road trip. 8. Security system: No matter how expensive or less expensive your bike is, chances are that it might get picked up by rowdy elements someday. All sorts of bikes get stolen from all sorts of places. Protecting your precious baby gets utmost important when we know that the motorcycle theft crime record is high as compared to the theft of other vehicles, such as cars. In addition to the locks-the basic security system, nowadays a sophisticated range of security system is available. From electronic alarms to GPS tracking device everything is available in the market. Installing a security system can help keep your bike safe. Investing in accessories priority wise and on installment basis can be helpful if you are on a budget. These are just a few suggestions, go ahead and explore the world of motorcycle accessories. Happy biking!!  Author BioAshley is a former journalist who quit her job to pursue her wanderlust and meet new people around the globe.

INNOVV K1 motorcycle camera system installation on 2008 Goldwing

My goals in mounting INNOVV K1 motorcycle camera system were to have easy access to the memory card and the trigger button to save video segments. I also wanted to minimize any interference the wiring would present during disassembly of the bike for servicing (removing plastic panels, etc.). My starting
point was the following video, which places the recorder in the rear top case.
  As mentioned in the video, having the recorder in the trunk requires ordering the system with a
special request for the longer 6 meter cable for the front camera. While this cable is far longer
than needed, the stock motorcycle cable is too short for this arrangement.
 My installation follows the same basic concept but modifies the details for mounting most of
the components.
 Video recorder and power lines The recorder was placed in the trunk, which protects the unit from water and allows
easy access to the memory card (Image 1 and 2). A hole was drilled in the front of the case, and
a water-tight rubber grommet was used to pass all wires into the case. The wires were held in
place to the front of the case using Gorilla tape in order to keep them organized (Image 3). All
wires go through this grommet, including the rear camera wire. The wires to the front were
routed under the seat, along the frame to their respective locations and were secured with wire
ties. Note that the recording unit tilts down slightly and the bracket is not strong enough to
hold it reliably. I have not yet decided how to address this issue.
    Video Save button and GPS module These are near each other, as shown in the below image.
The save button is an important feature and should be in an accessible place. However, I
expect that it will be used very rarely and does not need to be in top with the stock controls.

The location below allows easy access to the button, is a location that is not susceptible to
accidental activation and results in wire routing that has no impact on disassembly of the bike
for service.
 The GPS module is in a location that should be relatively dry, is out of the way, allows
the speaker to be heard on startup and keeps the wire out of the way during normal service
operations.
  Rear Camera
I mounted the camera under the rear case, to the side of the case opening levers, Since I have a trailer hitch, I did not want to mount the camera on the license plate as others have done. The license plate location complicates removal of the rear panel to get access to the hitch wiring harness. The location I used may also be a bit more stable, although the license plate mounting seems fine as well.
  To mount the camera, I removed the rear cover, inside the case. This allows you to look through to the outer shell of the case and drill a hole to mount the camera (below image). I welded the mounting bolt to a large fender washer to provide more stability to the mounting (epoxy could also be used if a welder is not available). Positioning the washer inside the case is quite tricky because the space is very tight. If you drop it, you could easily loose it inside the case. Use a guide wire through the drilled hole to ensure the bolt and washer slide into the correct location.  A second hole was drilled to run the rear camera lead between the bottom of the case and the outer shell (Image 5). A rubber grommet was used to keep it water tight. Running this wire under the case housing to under the rear seat was difficult for two reasons. First, there was a wiring harness hidden inside where I drilled the hole and I was lucky I did not damage it. If you do the same, use extreme caution, drill very slowly and ensure you do not allow the drill bit to penetrate past the plastic case. The second problem was that threading the wire from this hole to under the seat was extraordinarily difficult and required may trial an error attempts using a long plastic cable tie as a probe (plus extensive swearing J). I managed it in two segments. The first section was from where the wire entered the case to the access hole, seen in Image 2. This can be pried open with a screwdriver from the inside the case. The next section, from the access hole to under the rear seat rest, was easier. The red line in Image 2 shows the approximate route for the wire under the floor of the top case.  Front camera
The front camera is mounted on a bracket made from a 25mm wide strip of aluminum, that was bent to match the curve of the front of the bike between the headlights (Image 7). It is attached with foam tape, low between the headlights to avoid drilling holes in the front of the bike. In addition to the curve, the bracket had to be twisted to point the camera straight ahead. As others have mentioned, the camera cannot be mounted below this area. The fork travel is enough that it would damage the camera and fender.
  To route the front camera wire, remove the storage box and route it from the front through an existing gap that leads under the storage case (Image 8). I have the Goldwing Airbag model so the storage box is on the left side of the bike. Yours may be different.
Routing the wire the rest of the way to the back requires unbolting the trim and retaining bolts on the left side of the fairing. It is then routed along the frame, over the battery, to the back.
 

INNOVV K1 motorcycle camera system installed on 2015 Indian Roadmaster

Mine is installed on a 2015 Indian Roadmaster. I had it installed by the technicians at the dealership.  The front camera is mounted between the front forks under the bottom fork tree.  The rear camera is mounted underneath the trunk/tour pack.  They installed a switch in the dash to provide an on/off power control to the unit.  The DVR and GPS are installed inside the trunk.  The emergency button is there as well, but I’ll likely move it outside along the seat since I’ve had occasion to want to preserve a video.

 

Attached are the installation photos. 

  1. DVR and GPS Mount on Trunk Lid

 2. Front camera under bottom fork tree.   3. Rear Camera  Power Button on Dash Under 12 Volt Socket.  Save Button under seat heater buttons.  I mounted this here with heavy duty Velcro so that it can be reached and also easily temporarily removed when the trunk or seat have to be removed for maintenance etc.  In hind sight I wish I had the technicians mount this in the dash on the other side of the dash where there is also a blank socket.
