Wind noise on Hero 6 Black

So, I upgraded from a Hero 3 Plus to a Hero 6 Black. I use it pretty much for motorcycle riding and have it helmet mounted. Even with the supposed wind filter the wind noise is 10x worse on the 6 than it was on the 3 mounted to the right side of my helmet just at the back of the visor area. I noticed that there is a mic right next to the helmet, thought it was the wind rushing between helmet and camera. Tried a simple solution of some heavy tape to direct wind over with no help. Also tried moving it to center top of my helmet like I see most people do, seems a little worse. Above 40 mph I can't even here my Ducati :-o  I am wondering about the Super Suit, as my Hero 3 Plus was in a similar case, and the added protection would be nice. I also read about someone saying that connecting an external mic and putting it somewhere with no wind, like maybe in my jacket; but can't say I like this idea. More concerned that my camera has a problem with the wind filter. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
