Mounting Veho Muvi Cams
Everyone has to agree that these cams are great. Whether you use an £8 MD80 or £60 Veho Muvi Pro, the fact is that only 5 years ago this sort of kit would cost well over £200.
The main problem people come up against, and one of the most common questions I’m asked, is where is it best to mount it on a bike?
I like the cheap and easy option. Duct tape, a bit of foam, and you can pretty much mount this anywhere just using the tape and foam itself to get the right view angle.
I’ve mounted cams on track bikes in minutes this way. If you have a heavily tinted screen it cuts your options right down, but otherwise most bikes will be able to take the cam on the rear of its dash. This can be a bit fiddly, buit obviously you get protection from the elements and especially wind noise.
Incidentally, some cams need a bit of tape over the microphone hole to filter out most of the wind noise whilst keeping the bass sound of the engine. Have a play around.
On some bikes (like my ZX9R C model), you can tape the camera to the front of the brake fluid reservoir and get good results. This was my chosen place.
I even fashioned a custom mount to cut down on vibration and be easy and quick to remove and install:
If you’ve got good duct tape you can mount it pretty much anywhere, facing in any direction.
For my Veho HD10+ I tried the duct tape method but it wasn’t that great because of the cameras extra size.
I decided to have a play around with the ‘official’ mountings supplied with it. The smaller cams and MD80 has similar mounts and so this may also work fine for them.
I found the tank mount had far too much vibration to make it useable.
The mounting I use now is actually kind-of a mistake, where I wanted to try one of the sticky pads on my top yoke, but found it doesn’t quite fit on there and has to be at a slight angle. And on full lock the screen brace touches the camera…
Luckily it works really well. This is good, because that glue on the sticky pad is immensely strong! Make sure you’ve got it exactly where you want it.
You may also want to try (especially for the smaller cams) one mounted on your pillion footrest hanger, or even the number plate surround.
Or my trusty helmet camera using a length of duct tape behind the helmets cheek pad and just wrapping it around the camera and sticking it down outside the visor.
You can see loads of videos using all of these cameras and more on my YouTube channel:
