Looking At Bike Before Trip Next Week

I was taking a look at the LT this afternoon, checking the tires (from all the posts lately) checking for play in the rear wheel etc.
Then I started looking at how I can mount a remote switch for my GoPro camera & happened to be looking under the hand brake lever & noticed the plastic cover hanging down....upon further investigation I found the pivot screw was protruding out . Needless to say it is now back in firmly, I also checked the clutch lever.

Re: Looking At Bike Before Trip Next Week

Hey Chris,

Well I have been looking for some months & the following links are what I'm going to be using. As you say it will be with the GoPro set to record on power-on & stop with power-off. Not sure I'm going to get a chance to get it done before next Thursday when I leave for Hyder Alaska & the center of BC (Kootney).

This is the info on hooking up the Gopro

This is the connector I purchased

Re: Looking At Bike Before Trip Next Week

Thanks Phil... after asking the question, I checked the GoPro user sites and came up with the same link.. and someone pointed out the bio for the guy who designed it.... pretty damn good pedigree!
