Rear Camera Test
Few years ago I went on a ride with a bunch of guys on Verterans day. Needless to say, we hit patches of packed snow on the trail. Even with low tires pressures I slipped all over the place. Father in law found a half set of tire chains along the road one day. I had seen chains on bikes before and asked to use them. I took the tire off to fit them and they fit. I don't know the tire size of the chains, but they are similar to the his ATV chains. Guess I could go get the size off them and post here so there is a starting point (less guessing on chain size).Chains, huh, great idea......I just got back from my Colorado Elk hunt and while I was there I tried the TW in the mud and snow......with poor results, damn near busted my butt. Anything I need to know to enjoy success with installation and use?
what tyres are you running? with what psi?Chains, huh, great idea......I just got back from my Colorado Elk hunt and while I was there I tried the TW in the mud and snow......with poor results, damn near busted my butt. Anything I need to know to enjoy success with installation and use?
I use this camera with multiple mounting methods. For this mount, I used the mount which came with the camera, placed it sideways and screwed it to the rear footpeg upright. I then improvised the camera in the mount and secured it with plastic ties. When and if I use this mount location again, I will use a slightly different mounting system. One which would protect the camera from flying debris, mainly from the front tire. But here is a couple of shots of what I used. What ever mounting I use, I always want it to be simple and where I can take it on and off quickly.Can you take a pic of what the mount itself looks like? BTW, nice job on the vid.
Camera was actually mounted on the rear footpeg. Worked. I was surprised at how steady it was too!i'm surprised how stable the camera was given how much the swingarm was swinging. i was waiting for the soundtrack.... maybe backwards by rascal flats? i saw georgie looking to come back
good info there! im yet to ride mine on my new tyres, Ive currently got 15psi in my tw34 and also 15psi up front and will drop accordingly if i "drop" in the mud.I'm running the TW34 stock tire at around 10-15 psi. My front is a Shinko 244. Both are ok in mud...better with low psi...not that great on ice or packed snow without traction devices.
We've noticed that the ATV tires can toss some pretty big stuff out the back. Certainly larger stuff than the stocker. I usually warn others in advance not to follow too closely.Don't know if it will throw stuff more than your tire, but on the section of trail which starts at about the 40 second mark you can see lots of stuff flying around out back.
