Motorcycle Camera or Dash Cam if you like..
on: November 12, 2021, 01:20:38 AM
Hi all, just after some feedback please.
Has anyone had experience of using the Thinkware M1 or the Innovv K3.
Don't know which of the two would be the better option to fit on my 2018 S100xr.

Regards

Steve

Hi Steve,

I have used Innov K2s on previous bikes and currently have a K5 fitted to my bike. If its just dash cam footage you require then the K3 will be plenty good enough and an easier install. but if you want Gopro quality footage with decent sound then I recommend the K5. Installation is a bit more difficult but the image and sound results(depending on where you mount the remote mic) are really good. I mounted the main camera under the front beak and managed to get all the connections up by the headstock to make a neat install. The rear camera went under the rear rack along with the remote mic to give decent exhaust sound. A 512 GB SD card gives a full days riding footage and some.
What could possibly go wrong!!

Hi Quent, thanks very much for your reply & the info, I'm happy with K3 as my cash is also to go on some Denali bits

I use a K3 and its perfectly acceptable quality although the mic needs mounting further back to get a decent exhaust note.
I use Denali lights and sound bomb so everything hooks up to the CANsmart.
Steve at 'A Bike Thing' supplied everything and is very knowledgeable plus he puts up loads of Youtube videos to help with install information.

Hope this helps
