Now that I’ve finished running the C5 camera on the rear, I figured it was finally time to get around to making a more permanent mount for the rear K1 camera, rather than the piece of scrap steel strip that has done the job so far. Although it felt quite rigid, the fact is the video image would suffer with a bit of ‘jello’ above 6,000rpm – an annoying vibration in the image that makes it look slightly wobbly!
So after a couple of test runs to make sure dimensions were ‘ish’, it was a 6 hour slog-athon until the Robox printer produced this little puppy. It uses the same two M5 bolts as the steel strip, along with two more M4 mounting points to add a little extra rigidity. The camera now mounts (like the front) using all three 1/4-20 UNC points. I’m happy to say the image is lovely and stable, no more wibbly-wobbly video when the throttle gets lovingly caressed!

That look very nice !!! I would love to have something like that to install the rear K1 on my Ducati Diavel.
There is no place to install the K1 🙁
Certainly does look like the Ducati is limited for space to fit the K1. However as you can see, my mount is designed specifically for the ETV1000 …. so you would have to design a mount that is specific to the Diavel to benefit. Ask around – these days you don’t have to look far for someone with a basic CAD package and 3D printer that should be able to help you out. Good luck!
