Got the Tomtom Bandit action camera. Was thinking some long time, how it would be possible to install it on DN.
The helmet installation is off the list as modification of helmet is first illegal and secondly it will make wind noises and third I dislike the jumpy image coming from helmet camera. Installing on cowlings by double sided tape seems not strong enough for me. Also there is too much vibrations if installed on handle bar.

Then lately one day I got enlightening how it should be done.
As it is not possible to install camera behind the windshield because of the distorting optical properties of this, the camera must stand alone. Only reasonable place for this, not drilling into cowlings, is at the mirror holder.
This type of camera holder should be possible to adapt to other camera models also. Main component is a part of sheetmetal (2 mm steel in given case) worked out to right figure. Usually this type of cameras have wide angle lenses so it is not really a precise science about all those bending angles.
But let the images speak for themselves:
