Drift HD camera

Is anyone using the Drift HD camera on their Panigale? Where are you mounting the unit? Just curious on anyone's experiences with this camera.

I have the Drift Action HD 1080p - outstanding equipment. I usually mount it on the right side of my helmet, however I have various mounting accessories.

I purchased the Drift Ghost and mounted it with a 1 inch Ram Ball. I just looked thru all the mounts at Garmin GPS & Accessories, RAM Mounts, Lowrance GPS, TomTom GPS at GPS City and found what I needed.

I mounted in center of steering nut with one of there cheap ball mounts and then went to hardware store and bought a folding wing nut and screw to mount it with. No need to pay $80.00 for ball mount as this works great. I got a 2 inch extention for the 1 inch ball and put a ball with 1/4 x 20 screw and plate to mount camera. I think I spent a total of $35.00 for complete mount.

Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for the detailed info.
I'm going to make three mounts to choose from, steering stem, tail, and fork.

What is the item name for the piece going into the top yoke? Is it RAM item? If so is there a part reference I can use?

Unfortunately I spent the extra money on the Ram Fork stem base even though I was told it wouldn't fit. I can use the extra stem parts on my fiddy and add a beer holder.
There are many options from GPScity that may have worked too. I went with this one https://www.gpscity.com/ramb342 took away the plug and added a 3/16" bolt and folding wingnut you can get at any hardware store.
Thanks from Marcbc and Alpha Male

Thumbs up

Glad to see you got it working. Wingnut works great, the only problem I see is if I ever want to remove it. Ha Ha!!!
