Noob Helmet Help

alright, make fun if u want, but i can't figure this out. How do you attach the helmet to the helmet lock on either side of ur bike without the helmet being mashed up against the exhaust ( which is plenty hot after riding ) ??

is there some extension wire/ lock that i'm supposed to have? i got my bike used, and the owners manual was no help.

these pics show my confusion and lack of knowledge. plz help

well..... if you need to put your helmet in the back seat because it gets too hot then you really only have two options.
1 open the rear seat...there should be under the seat some type of hook or....on the frame of the bike (in the trunk spot)
2 if the seat has a strap like my bike does(2007 r6) then that should be very easy... strap your helmet under the strap, then strap it just like if you were putting it on.

if none of this helps....then.....put the helmet on top of the tank!
there problem solved...any of this should help..

. That's a design flaw. I have two hooks on either side of my trunk; the exhaust is only on the right. My nighthawk had a small hook like yours, but on the side opposite the exhaust (plus the exhaust was low). I've never seen a set-up like yours.

Some designs are flawed.


If you take it with you then you get the guys that 'use to have a bike' ask if you ride. Be sure to tell them you dont have a bike but do have a tendancy to drink heavily.

hahah^^ my favorite answer.

yeh i've been taking it with me where ever, but it'd be handy to be able to lock it to my bike. Likely not happening due to dual exhaust...

ahhh the price to pay for cool , yet mostly useless, style!

there are helmet locks you can place on the handlebars if you wanna leave it and dont wanna get it stolen. here's an example:

Cycle gear should have a relocation, lockable helmet rig you can install anywhere.

Or get a simple bike cable lock, put it under the seat and run it through the seat, frame etc or through the helmet.

Seb on here uses that to run through the sleeves of his jacket to keep it off his person when out.

When ppl ask me if I ride (when I'm wearing a 20 lb leather Teknic jacket on the hottest day of summer) I just tell them no. I think I look really cool in all this gear.

locking your lid on the bike is asking somebody to steal it, and yes people do cut the helmet strap to steal the helmet.
good points on both. shame to jack someone's helmet. why not unbolt the kick stand while at it ?
