I mounted one to the lower fairing on the left side once. https://zx-10r.net/forum/showthread.php?t=26831

Only thing is, I'd recommend doing a dry run with something in place other than the actual bullet cam. As this is a good mounting spot to get an expensive piece of kit scraped right off. I used a piece of conduit the first few times down that stretch.

I've also thought about using one of my mirror's as a spot to mount one. Here you could aim it back at yourself, or have a slightly different forward view angle. Thing is, if you're trying to make a good video, you'll find yourself coming up with all sorts of locations and angles to shoot. Best of luck, and enjoy the new toys

Not as much as you would think. Just got to keep an eye out for the more "shady" places that are selling them. The site below seems pretty good, as a lot of folks I know have gone through them, including me.

the best place to buy your camera set is supercircuits.com that is where most of the companies buy the parts make up a kit and sell them for more very helpful they are a massive cctv company with a real good book

I got the motocomm one and I mounted it to one of the license plate mounting bolts to use as a rearview camera. It sticks out the back alittle but it gives a good view. It doesnt pick up vibes or shakes and you can just watch it or record if you want. Only drawback is you cant listen to the mp3 player and watch the camera at the same time.
