Innov K2 camera
on: July 05, 2019, 04:42:04 PM
Hi all,

Has anyone tried the Innov K2 camera on their Street Triple?  I've used GoPros for the past couple of years and they are great and very flexible but finding the right mount or mount point can be hit or miss or like today I had it angled slightly wrong and completely missed what I was trying to film.  It's also remembering to swicth them on or off, in in fact they are within range to do so.  That's why I like the look of the Innov K2 in that it's got front and rear, directly powered from the battery and automatically switches on and off so no more faffing about.  Ok so that sounds like a sales pitch but what I'm really interested in is do they do all that and how much of an awkward sod are they to fit?  I don't like the idea of drilling holes here and there to feed cables through plus I'm a real neat freak when it comes to any cables exposed.

Any feedback would be great.

Hey,

I am sorry to see there were no reply to your post.

I am considering getting a Innovv K2 too but I am interested in some feedback and hints about installation on a ST first.

I have a DOD dashcam in my car and I like it a lot (mainly used for my duties as I work in road accident reconstruction). DOD's cam for motorbike seems good too, but the Innovv K2 does fit better.

Niko ST, if you are still here, have you installed a cam on your bike?

I have spent a lot of time/research looking at the Innovo kit, there kit seems to get a lot of good reports and very good feedback on customer support. Although I have not fitted one to a bike the RX looks like there are a number of location it would mount easily.

I was going to buy one for my RX but sold the bike, just waiting for lockdown to ease up then get a new bike and buy the camera.
Cheers

Yup.

Finally, I have found many reviews on the web, including on Triumph motorbikes.

No doubt the system is fine, well designed, waterproof and almost invisible.

The after sale services sounds excellent too... just in case.

Theses guys (and many others) made a clean install :

Also found a nice review with mounting tips (on a BMW):
I am now seriously thinking about getting one, just a matter of price (329 euros online).

Just another point to consider for owners of multiple bikes is how easily the set-up can be moved between bikes. I wouldn't want to have to pay for a full kit for each bike.
I can see the advantage of a nice front and rear set-up but currently, due to not wanting this kind of double outlay, I'm stuck with a crash helmet mounted "bullet style" camera (front facing only).

You are right but personally I would only fit one bike with a cam (my need).

Dashcams can record your speed and position and what happens in front of and behind the bike. Gopros and similar camsbon helmets do not, if I am right (maybe the last models do...?).

You may be interested in the DOD Hummer model if your helmet cam has such limits :

But you dont want to let such a cam on your bike when parked...

My helmet mounted camera does record speed and a bunch of other stuff, I think GoPro's do the same.
But many people have this facility switched off for (ahem) obvious reasons. :192:

I have the K2 on my bike.
The hardest part was running the cable for the rear camera.
I had to use a longer bracket for the front camera though as there isnt much to mount to without the head lights being in the way.
It is a really good system in my opinion, it also has a accelerometer built in which allows the unit to record anything that happens to the bike while its parked, and will also record any crashes in a separate folder.

Thanks Gaz.

Nice job indeed!

Where did you put the GPS unit? Under the seat, i can imagine?

Does it properly catch satellite signals?

Yeah the GPS unit is as far back as i could fit it under the seat to try and give it a bit of a chance.
It is a bit hit and miss though and people have reported having issues even with it in view.
