They will stop recording and turn off if there is allot of vibration. Any idea what is causing the problem? I think it is the battery but I'm not sure.

Here are 2 videos with the 808

No, I got tired of ****ing with them. Another problem I had was them not closing the file property and corrupting my videos. I lost a lot of cool race footage like that.

I bought a gopro hd from riders discount and have been extreamly happy with it. Just slap it Into my sticky mount and press the power button. Works 100% of the time. You can get neat angles with the little cam and duct tape though.

Crashed it again some time ago...So I'm converting it now to a track only bike :)

I always hated the cables and fuse box in the front of the bike. I removed the SAI and made some block off plates. By removing the SAI I had now some space between the engine and air intake tunnel. I now had some room to reroute the wire harness and fuxe box. Here is the result :) No more cables in the front of the bike. I'm expecting next week my new parts.

^That's really cool, Willy. I hated the cables too and spent a bunch of effort cable-tying them all up against bike parts. Your solution is 100x better. Nicely done.

Nice write up. Perhaps your subconscious is causing you to crash as it seems that you enjoy working on the thing a lot :-)
