This weekend I got around to making a bracket for a camera mount on my 00 CBR F4. I simply cut and bent a sheet of aluminum from Lowes to make the bracket. Then, bought a travel tripod from Wal-Mart for $15 and mounted the head on the bracket. Luckily, it's all metal. I took advantage of a bolt underneath the front gas tank mount for the bracket. Took it out for a test run today and it works great. Loosen a wing nut and the camera mount pops off. Also very easy to aim it up or down and tighten it back up with the grip on the fly.

Looks great, what kind of camera do you use? Is it a Hard Drive, Disc, or something else. I have the tank mount at the filler for mine, I haven't really tested it. I heard the HD cameras don't work well and that's what I have.

Here's a video of it in action.

The camera is just a Canon SD600. It's one of the nicer point and shoot cameras. But, it takes pretty good video with sound at 640x480 @ 30FPS.

I gotta try mine out didn't work great last time, probably user error
It's a 30gb hard drive cam. I might hit the lake in the next couple of days to try it out. I'll post it if it works.

Nope, it's probably not user error. The hard drive cams are really sensitive to vibration. I haven't tried this, but in theory, it would probably be best to put the camera in a backpack and use a remotely mounted lipstick cam on the bike somewhere. digitalpeer's camera uses flash memory which is not affected by vibration.
