The stock helmet lock above the rear wheel broke and fell off last fall right before I put the bike into storage.

Not sure if it would be practical to replace this. If not, what alternative ways do you guys have to lock your helmet to the bike when you stop somewhere??

I know there are some handlebar ends out there with locks on them but I would prefer to store my helmet down on the bike itself where it's less likely to get knocked around or fill up with water if it rains.

--Thanks for your suggestions 8)

My brother's Ninja has a tab under the seat you can fit a D ring over so you can hang a helmet so that when you click the seat back down, your helmet is locked with the strap running under the seat.

Worked like this:






Since I removed the stock helmet lock because it looked like poo, I just attached a hook under my seat and it works the same way. So, you unlock it with the key, lift the seat and unhook your helmet. Works out well enough for me.

He'd do that but he said, "I know there are some handlebar ends out there with locks on them but I would prefer to store my helmet down on the bike itself where it's less likely to get knocked around or fill up with water if it rains."

Well if it is raining, I bring the helmet with me. And if you bump the helmet it does not hit the tank or anything.

most of the time i wear my half helmet which i pretty much consider disposable and wont sweat if someone steals. If it is cold enough out that I am wearing my KBC VR2 which i dont consider disposable I have a dog collar choker chain and a pad lock to secure it to the bike

These are some great ideas guys.....thanks for all the suggestions.
I especially like the idea of putting a hook underneath the seat since it is locked with the key anyway!! :bigthumbsup:
