Here's pics of my split-seat tail & how the helmet attaches to the subframe hook...

I put the the helmet on the passenger peg resting on the mouth protection part and put a bike cable lock through it to the frame. Harder to cut the lock than the helmet strap.

I really suggest reading the owner's manual of your motorcycle if you don't even know how to take the passenger seat off yet...

Ok so you want to keep your helmet safe, what is to stop me coming along and kicking the **** out of it or taking a **** inside when it is tied to your bike? Better yet cutting the straps and stealing it.


The only way to keep your helmet safe is to carry it with you or lock it in a top box, it could mean the difference between walking away and laying in hospital with brain damage. Why leave that responsibility in the hands of the general public who are for the most part a bunch of retards.

I've used the one under the seat, but if your bike is in the sun the helmet gets hot.
No fun putting a hot helmet on when it's warm, I just carry it.

The bike didn't come with a owners manual...

I want to keep the helmet from getting taken to a certin extent. I'd rather have it hanging from the bike and look locked than just sitting on my tank. I understand if someone wants it bad enough they will take it.
