A look into where Buell Motorcycle Company is racing.
Turbo Buell XB GoPro tank mount
For more information, check out my build website at www.streetfighterperformance.com A short ride around the block with the GoPro mounted with their suction cup mount. This mount does a much better job than the handlebar mount but the camera still vibrates a good bit. The Boost controller is set to ~15psi in every gear. The bike is running a bit rich at that Boost level which causes the couple of stutters during hard acceleration at 2:35 and 6:10. The slipping clutch is evident in the 4th and 5th gear pull at 6:12. The GoPro picks up an occasional rattle noise when the intake plumbing slightly vibrates against the tank cover (what the GoPro suction cup is attached to). At 8:58 a guy in a white SUV asks what kind of bike it is and at 10:08 and 12:48 I talk to a guy riding a Triumph. He asks if it's a 500, haha! At 10:40 a woman tries to cut me off.....Grrr!
