My Drift is mounted just by the right hand mirror using the ram base https://www.ram-mount.co.uk/reservoir-cover-base-with-1-ball-offset-mounted-p-1567-c-238_286.html on the brake reservoir then a short arm to the camera mount.
I'm trying to find the pictures I had of the set up but may have to take more for you if you want them.

Gives a good perspective and in a position where you can see if there is a problem

I put a ram line u bolt mount on the top of my left upper crash bar and the handle bars. that way I could use a combination of ram "arm length" connectors to obtain the image I wanted. This way i could point the camera in any direction. The best so far has been helmet mounted, however. :084:

I mounted my GoPro Hero 3+ off my RH mirror on my Gen-2 using one of these mounts

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Scooter-Moped-Motorcycle-Camera-Mount-for-the-GO-Pro-Hero/141033241555?hash=item20d63c7bd3:g:Wq4AAOSwAHBaIX4j

Works really well, no real vibes to talk of, most footage is steady and clear. As opposed to the eBay picture, I have my mount attached about half way down the stem facing out frontwards (so it just clears the screen on full lock)

You'll have to look past the screen but here is the mount I fitted for the drift
