The Go Pro will come with some stick on mounts but not something that bolts to the cage. Below is a link to the one that I like.

Re: Go-Pro

You defiantly want to get the Hero 7 Black. It's internal Image stabilization is awesome and video quality is great. As long as your not bouncing over boulders at high speed you will get a pretty stable video. They make various mounts for different diameter bars.

Re: Go-Pro

I would recommend waiting a couple of weeks. The Hero 8 Black is in pre-order and it has some new cool features.

GoPro’s release very frequently. It seems like just yesterday I bought the Hero 5 with 4k.

You can purchase chest rigs, hat clips, full head rigs, or I’m sure you can find sturdy mounts for the roll cage.

Be sure to grab you an extra battery or two, and try to utilize a charger as much as possible. Battery drains quicker than you think.

Re: Go-Pro

I use Ram mounts on just about everything. Go pro, phone, gps, etc. They are awesome. Good luck.

I ended up ordering the Hero 7 package off amazon that has a bunch of accessories so I’ll see what all it come with and if needed I’ll order a roll bar mount. Thanks for all the help.

Re: Go-Pro

Really tempted to upgrade to the Hero 7, for the stabilization. Been hearing they are having a lot of problems with it though. Overheating, battery usage etc.

I've had zero issues with my Hero 4 Silver...so I'll probably wait a while.

Re: Go-Pro

Yes. Mine takes really good video but eats batteries like a fat kid eats cake.

Re: Go-Pro

Can you plug your go pro into a cigarette plug in your rzr so you don't have to worry about the battery?

Re: Go-Pro

Yes, you can use the Gopro with it's usb type charging cable plugged into a cigarette lighter adapter of the correct usb type as your cable. With the Hero 7 black 12v to 5v works, and I believe I read somewhere at 12v a little over 1amp was working. Apparently it won't charge the battery while recording so it will use the gopro battery birst down to about 3% then use external power or you can just use external power with the gopro battery removed. There are some issues people have had with freezing while connected to external power, some have solved this by turning wifi and other features they aren't using off, others have cut the end of the charging cable off and only used the + and - wires to hard wire it to the vehicle power source and it removed those issues also.
