I don't use a manufactured deadcat, I make my own so trim the fur to suit the role :) I also line the chin piece with fur too, especially around the wind deflector on the neck
hmmm hadn't thought about trimming it, maybe I'll give that a try.
didn't help that my visor kept misting up so i had to open the mouth piece :/

do you use a PinLock? The standard PinLock is the 70, but they also do a 120 which works better :)
I received my pinlock visor today and am expecting the insert tomorrow so all being well that will solve the issue I've been having... even with an anti fog visor and with treatments I was just getting stupid amounts of condensation on the inside of the visor.

I'm running the gopro mic adapter with a 6 inch bendy mic from amazon. I'd post the link but I'm new :D

Oddly enough, the Sony ESMCS3 doesnt work on the adapter at speed, it cuts out all the time and I attempted the Giant Squid mic that some motovloggers I follow recommend but that thing picks up TOO MUCH audio lol.

The bendy mic works for me since the adapter is mounted to my chin and it runs though a slit in my chin curtain. Foam, Dead Cat and a bandana wrap for good measure and i'm pretty happy with my setup.

I am using my intercom's microphone and record the voice on my phone via bluetooth. It is not a good solution,and the sound is mono, but after some editing, the sound quality is enough for vlog.
Do you get the buzzing sound? I do it the same way, and I have to do a lot of noise filtering in post.

I tuck mine inside the cheek pad at the closest part to my mouth. The pad keeps the mic away from the shell and acts as a windsock to keep out wind noise. I have used this method at 100+mph with a straight pipes exhaust and can still hear my voice audio just fine without too much wind noise.
This is what I do too. Its worth mentioning to play with audio settings on camera too as this can help in only picking up just voice and not other unwanted noise.


I would love to know if there are any people who record separate exhaust noise, and where and how they find best for their zoom tascam etc.

Just get a louder exhaust :D My motogymkhana stuff isn't a good example as I refitted the standard silencer to the bike but my other videos all have the bike noise recorded from within my helmet and I get a lot of comments saying how nice the bikes sound! :)

If that isn't an option though then a tascam wrapped between 2 large sponges placed under the pillion seat should be out the weather and wind and the sponges will work as a dead cat as well as stop it rattling about under the seat/seat cover :)

I have tried few ways, for recording the engine sound, while riding. Most pleasing result I got, was strapping the mic on my back, attached to the belt of my chesty. No dead animals involved, only small woolly cloth over it, to help it stay put.
It is important to note, that I have relatively up straight seating position.

I had my Lavalier Giant Squid mic near my right temple but the sound was muffled and there was a lot of wind noise so I moved it to my chin and now the audio is much clearer with barely any wind noise below 70mph.

I have my LFH 91740 clipped on the removable chin curtain (after failing to stick it with double sided tape).
Having a modular helmet, it is more difficult to get a good "voice and bike" sound, but it seems to be OK. Even on the highway the wind noise is manageable :)
In addition to putting it behind the chin curtain, I have a deadcat made from an old fluffy sweater (thick and doesn't let any wind through) and it seems to work fine.
I also talk through my own pop filter (a balaclava) which helps even more with the sound quality.

In previous iterations I had one channel muted by sticking a piece of velcro over it and copied the left channel to the right one, where I could choose between engine noise or voice. Now I have both!
