We picked up some really interesting and useful accessories that are a must buy for all the adventure seeking junkies:
The C5 single channel camera system is a newer offering from INNOVV providing a lot of desirable features for powersports activities, particularly motorcycling enthusiasts, at a very reasonable price.
Compact and ruggedized, the modular-based Innovv C5 provides a sealed waterproof lens, 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.
When networked to a compatible smart device running the iOS or Android INNOVV app, users can configure the system for set-once use or interact dynamically to preview/live-view, review video and manage the system.

point was the following video, which places the recorder in the rear top case.
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.
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.
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
the speaker to be heard on startup and keeps the wire out of the way during normal service
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.
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.
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.
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.
