Versys Camera mount

Yesterday I bought a tough waterproof case for my Samsung Galaxy S3 mobile that I intended to use on my Versys as a GPS as well as an action cam. I mounted it on the M8 handlebar bolt,but it has too much vibration for the phone camera to handle and it looks like I am going at warp speed when I'm doing only 60 km/h. Has anyone here found a suitable mounting point for a camera or do I need to come up with a solution to stick it to my chest?

I spent alot of time and money for different mounts before i found what worked best for me. For the smoothest video camera mounted on fork leg also front of the windscreen works good.http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...=camera+mounts Now i have a camera mounted on the helmet.

Which waterproof case did you get? I have an S3 and have been looking for something. Considered the Otterbox Armor (Have Defender presently) but read some less than stellar reviews...

I got the ultimate addons case with the M8 handlebar mount and the extender http://www.ebay.com/itm/Waterproof-H...item27cd09f0c7
I tried the existing bolts from the windscreen but no luck. Thought of the front forks but since I need a bolt-the lower triangle was my first option but in full left or right there is not enough space between the triangle and the headlight.
My next try would be replicating the chest strap from the gopro or some home made mount for the front forks...
