Good how to and ideas.
Trusting double side adhesives to hold everything is dodgey, and the surface is curved to make contact area even less.
Sooner or later they will let go, I have worked with them for years in industry.
IMO they are a temporary solution, especially when higher temperatures in summer are involved.
How does the wind act on the assy. at 70+ mph?

I'm looking into the Go Pro handle bar mount as well to see if it's a viable option. As far as wind, I didn't have any issue for the short highway run today. The position is just inside of the air flow coming off the wind screen.

I do have to agree not only the "Bonding" is weak but is not sufficient surface area to deal with such a big object, plus wind, vibration, etc, I will suggest to bolt a aluminum (phenolic, plastic or something) plate to the go pro mount to increase the contact area..

Ps: many years ago somebody was making brake/clutch reservoir caps with "Hears" for the ram mount balls, maybe something you can bolt to is the solution..

PsII: for now I will suggest you to run a tether wire just in case..

What about this stuff...

3m VHB tape... Apparently it tests stronger than rivets and is used on the glass facade of skyscrapers ?

http://solutions.3m.com/wps/portal/3...s/3M-VHB-Tape/

Any experiences?

Pretty well the best there is, but you need a good flat to flat surface area.
No curved surface and no paint - it's only as strong as the paint adhesion to the mother surface.

I did exactly that with a Ram ball. Very strong.

Did you drill and tap that your self...!?

The ones I'm taking about had 2 "hears" (taps) coming out of the sides of the cap (outside the 4 bolts) but I was always worry the taps will break taking on of the corners with them, your look a lot more secure even if I don't think is much material under the cap..

I made this to prevent piddle puddles from appearing on my rear rim & 'possum scraper.

There is enough material to support but not to thread.
The one I showed was a 3/8-24 stud and I have a threaded plate under. You can also use a pal nut.
You can use both types, I have. If you use the ear type you should put in the matching curve (I use a belt sander).

Fuel line protectors

I've been thinking of making these for a while and finally got around to it. Fortunate, I had a friend with a plasma table and he was able to cut the front piece for me.

There was a lot of test fitting and tweeking involved, but the final product turned out pretty good. I enjoyed the project and saved some $$$$!

Great job, you would be hard pressed to tell the difference from the Touratech ones!

Thank you! The big difference between the two is that I spent about $8 making these.
