GoPro Suction cup

Camera moves around a LOT with the suction cup. However, when you watch the video you cant really tell. I had it on top of my gas tank. What do some of you use when you are at the track? Suction cup?

No issues with paint coming off when removing them?

The solid mounts won't hurt your paint. They can get on pretty good though so its best to maybe use a hairdryer or heatgun or something of the sort to heat up the adhesive upon removal.

Suction cup does vibrate a lot depending on location. Mainly when extended all the way out... which is usually the view/location I like :( . On a curved plastic (eg my tail) it seems to move too much for video.... pictures come out though.
I wish this location worked, but it's too shaky. This is arm extended all the way out.

Although, the track is generally smoother.... so it might not be as much of an issue. I've only done one video at GSS with the suction cup on the tank and there wasn't any vibration.

I still haven't put any stickies on the bike... rather not look at them all the time.

The tracks can be very bumpy and will distort the video if you're concerned with blurry vids. I used the suction cup mount a few times but it got it my way and it would shake too much for my preference...so I used the sticky ones on the front fairing. Its best to use a firm mounting location then put a piece of tape on the mount and that will help steady the camera even more.

Then again I'm not concerned about the cosmetics of my bike too much. She is all beat up

i have a suction cup mount for my contour HD. i like mounting it right on the tach (or speedo) since its the exact shape. doesn't vibrate to much.
