Do sticky GoPro mounts come off fairings?

If I want to sell the bike later on, when I take off the gopro mount off the fairing, will it take the paint with it and ruin the fairing (they use 3M sticky tape)?
If it will, what's another good place to put the mount on the back of the bike?
thanks

I've removed a few off of the factory bodywork with no issue. One left a bit of residue that rubbed off with a little cleaner.

I avoided areas that had factory stickers or decals when I put them on to make sure I wouldn't have any issues removing them.

They will definately come off. Pretty much like removing an emblem from a car or something of that sort. Depending how long it's actually sat there and weathered depends on how much clean up will be left to do, but as far as messing up the paint or anything of that nature you're pretty much in the clear unless you take a screw driver and pry at it.

I don't like the suction cup.. Had one fall off and if a friend hadn't noticed, I'd lost my camer. Now the case has a scratch that I need to find a way to buff out because it's in the middle of the picture... Or get a new case.

You don't need a whole new case. The lens on the GoPro case is replaceable.

If I used the suctioncup I would attach a small lanyard between the camera and someplace on the bike.

after having mine almost fall off using a sticky pad on a 100+ day I would suggest using a small lanyard no matter what

I think the problem most people have is if they get it on the decal seems on the OE plastics. I'm positive that Honda intentionally placed a decal on every open space of the fairings just to keep from putting a suction cup mount on the bike.

Suction cap will not stay long at high speed if not protected behind the windshield. And if you properly place it with good suction, it may leave a mark on the clear coat. It did on my bike once and I had to use a fine polish product to buff it off.

After all that, I moved to handle bar mounts .... and broke the case twice due to vibration (last time doing 140 mph at TWS (Texas World Speedway) and had to pick up the pieces one by one).

So now I stick to the helmet mount which seems to be the best bet for me.
