GoPro Suction mount problem on 'flat' paint?
For those with the Matte Graphite or Matte Orange AND the GoPro suction cup mount, do you have any problems getting it to stick?
My suction cup doesn't suck, and that sucks. It's very difficult to get a good adhesion and it fell of 3 times while parked in the garage. Eventually I got it to hold better but at the end of a 10 minute ride, it fell again.
Neanderthal suggested testing the suction cup by applying it to something else so I attached it to my craftsman tool chest in the garage at a horizontal angle. 4 days later it's still there. Then I put it back on the flat spot on the front of the tank and again, it wasn't fully secure and after about 15 minutes, I decided to pull it off before it fell on its own.
Is anyone else with matte paint having this issue or any tips on how I can make it stick better?
