Re: CB360- No Evil

No actual work done but I did go for a short ride yesterday.
Had to work on stepson- in-law's truck suspension so didn't get anything really useful done.
I did make a mounting for the high def Go Pro cameera my wife bought me for Christmas though,
bolted to lower fork leg

Ready for filming


For the people still snowed in, two one minute filulums to come soon (as soon as I upload them to You Tube) ;D ;D
(BTW, that's still the 35yr old Continental, which is why it has such wide 'chicken strips)
Here's video

Re: CB360- No Evil

What a freakin cool crimbo present.
The picture quality is great compared to footage I've seen from other mounted cameras.
Sweet toy. :)
There's a few rides here I'd love to film.

Re: CB360- No Evil

Oh Thanks for that PJ! :(
This morning, it is 10 here in Pittsburgh,PA and a dusting of snow .
I probably won't be on the back of a bike for another 3 months.
I have to get out of here!

Re: CB360- No Evil

You may wanna blank out that vanity plate PJ....just sayin'

Nice smooth picture what with being mounted on the axle...that's pretty damn good!'
Don't know much about that camera but there must be digital stabilization...that was really very smooth looking...

Re: CB360- No Evil

I deliberately took it over some rough ground, it's a lot bumpier than it looks, forks were probably moving 3".
I was pretty amazed at the quality considering the light was 'going'
That's my wife's car, don't know how to edit video yet, maybe I'll just delete it for now(and take a new one ;D )

Re: CB360- No Evil

I'm with cbSteve - we have way too much snow out here. Makes me anxious for spring though. Wait a minute.....VonYinzers' SL175 is just sitting around in the garage.......


Thanks for the vid PJ.

Re: CB360- No Evil

Cool vid, I saw those cameras at the Honda dealership last summer. very interesting. I'd like a shot with the camera mounted rear looking forward so we can see your foot work!

Re: CB360- No Evil

Not sure why you want that view but it should be pretty easy.
I'll take a look at mounting off chain guard bolt. and see if I can get vid uploaded before work one day this week

Re: CB360- No Evil

PJ, that view in general is more interesting to me for riding vids as it gives a real sense of what the rider is doing. you see rider shifting weight and you see the bike leaning etc. I thinks its bit more interesting than just seeing what's coming up the road.

It's not have I a thing for your feet! :)

Re: CB360- No Evil

I guessed that, nothing weird about Diesel ;D
Making a rear mount wasn't quite as easy as I expected
I was going to mount it to top of suspension but ended up mounting it to rear footrest/exhaust bracket to get a lower view.
It has quite a lot of resonant vibration at various rpm, even witha bungy as a 'damper'.

I'll try again on the weekend with it mounted higher.
I was going to tear bike down and get frame powder coated then fit all the parts I've made/modified but, at present I'm having too much fun with it (and, I may have to have another surgery on my left arm in next month or two :mad: :( )
Anyway here's vid with gearchanges, and some 'offroad' ;)
There is quite a lot of swing arm movement which makes the automatic image stabilisation more impressive on the fork mounted vid
I managed to break the plastic parts while putting bike away, probably machine some more robust ones from aluminium bar.

BUILT NOT BOUGHT!
Re: CB360- No Evil

I do like that angle much better but the vibration is effin up the quality of the vid, still cool stuff!

Re: CB360- No Evil

Did some work on bike, headlight changed as low beam has burned out, finally got round to fitting modified shocks (3/4" is a lot - in the right direction ;) )
Did a bit of electrical testing with stock 12v 12A/hr battery and also with 12v 7.5A/hr battery to see if results change (they don't :p )
electrical pics are here
http://www.dotheton.com/forum/index.php?topic=21350.0.
Battery died on camera before I could get pics of shocks fitted.
They have improved ground clearance a lot.
The spring rate is just about perfect for me, will be a little stiff if I manage to get back to 180~190lbs
Now I really need to get the new forks, wheels and tyres on (going to make some bronze bushings for swing arm first though 8) )
I'll get pics when I change battery
