Thats only because a Street Triple R is faster than a helecopter
So apparently the rough texture of the matte paint wont adhere a suction cup, so I'll go for the roll bar mount and try that with the front forks and the GB Racing engine slider.
As Mac B said, it will fail eventually and it fails pretty quickly on this paint. Falling off while parked in the garage means I could never trust it on the road.

This doesn't help you, but I have a phantom black street triple and the gopro suction mount is perfect on the tank.

I think re-sealing the cup every time, with a bit of saliva after cleaning with a microfiber wouldn't hurt either.

The slower you move, the more dangerous your bike is... I'll let you work out the conclusion from there

If you find wearing proper gear's too hot, you're just not fast enough !

Yes - the mount is not intended to permanently live in position. Only use it while filming or getting from A to B. Like a tank bag, I clean both surfaces every time I use them.

I have seen several Go Pro suction mounts come loose at the track, even on clean smooth surfaces.

i use the top clamp ball mount (~$5 each on amazon) on all my bikes so i can switch out GPS or goPro.

here's a crappy pic of my brother from the goPro somewhere in Idaho, lens was pretty dirty. but i like that i can position it to clearly show the gauge cluster or turn it around and film myself or back under my arm.

The suction cup has worked for me on several rides and 4 track sessions on my Daytona but it doesn't seem to work on the Street Triple. I, like OKStriple have invested in a handlebar mount, which seems to work fine and it didn't cost much.

Just 'cause you're not paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you!
