  • PC install with DVR + GPS + Internet... In a motorcycle

    Hello Guys! I am installing a computer in a 2008 Suzuki Hayabusa.

    The point of this is to do GPS and record where I have been. Itunes for music on my longer rides. and a 4 camera (1/3" Sony bullet cams) into a usb dvr device to record my trips. And since I AM a network engineer, Ill use my jailbroken IPhone to tether to the internet and allow those with access, to view my camera's live, or to upload my pics or whatever to my server on the fly.

    Parts list:
    DVR card: USBG-4EYE (4 channel 120FPS / 30FPS per channel)
    Case: EP5003 Mini ITX Chassis with Solid Front Panel
    Mobo: Intel BOXD510MO Intel Atom D510
    Ram: G Skill 4GB
    PSU: M1-ATX 6-24V Smart DC Power Board
    HDD: Intel 128GB SSD
    GPS: Garmin Mobile PC 20x
    Wifi: Wifi + BT mini PCI-E card
    Monitor: 8.4" Shark touchscreen

    First thing I had to do is make more room for the case. @ hayabusa.org, a guy came up with a storage mod to allow more room in the "trunk". I followed his steps and modified it slightly to fit my computer in place.








    I had to cut off the mounting tabs and flip the case upside down in order for it to fit.


    I have received most of the parts but am still waiting on the SDD, GPS, camera, DVR card, and monitor. I also ordered some bulkhead cables.



    I intend on cutting a small hole and running all the cables (led leads, VGA cables, 2 USB, 2 power wires) to the front of the bike right under the handlebars. I will modify that panel to include a container that will hide the connections when not in use and allow easy access to them. If the monitor isnt mounted (an issue all its own) You should not be able to see anything but the small cameras in odd places.

          I can't even begin to imagine where all that would go on a motorcycle.

                Just today I saw a Harley Ultra Glide (with those fairing) showing what it looked like a flip up 6.5" screen. Very cool. Sound was blasting and I think Nav was showing on the screen. Hard to tell at 75mph. But the point is, a carputer on that ride is kind of "easy".

                On a sportbike however, you have to use the underseat storage space, I'd guess. There's a guy around here who did it on a BMW K1200. Some bikes have a lot of storage under the seat, I think the Honda CB 550 and the XX1100 have a great space there.

                  The storage on a hayabusa is minimal at best. thats why i had to modify the storage compartment.

                      Got the sides grinded down so it bits into the trunk better. Got the SSD in and loaded win7 Ultimate. Found out there there is a such thing as road runner. Looking around for a manual and how to customize it. Also looking into an adaptation of the ODBII software for the bike. So, still trying to figure that out. Waiting on cables, Touch screen, camera, GPS, and DVR.

                        Finished modding the trunk. Also had to modify the case it aint pretty but it works and you wont be able to see it. M1-ATX PSU was DOA so i had to return it

                              It's quite an interesting project...We don't find many SBKputer projects after all...

                              2GB of RAM should be more than enough and it will save some power too considering you have a smaller battery when compared to a 4-Wheeler.

                              I'd suggest that 8.4" Shark Monitor/Touchscreen is best avoided. I have the same screen and view-ability sucks big time even in a brightly lit room. The build quality and touch screen is pathetic too.
