'07 R6 seat cowl question

I am lookin for a seat cowl, or a way to modify my seat cowl so that I can hook my lid on it.

The one I have now is not able to do that

Any ideas?

I used one of these (don't have a clue what the technical name for it)
I expanded the pre-drilled hole just a little bit in order to utilize the bolt that holds the rear plastic on...

Go to Wally World or a bicycle shop and get one of these:

http://www.masterlockbike.com/produc...ocks&pid=27310

You can thread it through the subframe and then through the chin bar of your helmet.
You can even pass it through a sleeve of your jacket to secure it as well.

our passenger seats do have places to attach a helmet


under your passenger seat, you will see a white hook on both sides (near the black strap).

That is the helmet holder, just hook the Dhooks to it, and secure the seat back down.
