Remove rear seat. Hook one of the metal rings onto one of the hooks located closer to the front of the bike. Put seat back on.

Just remember that while that might seem convenient, the lock doesn't prevent someone from just cutting the strap and stealing your helmet.

Does this still work well if you replace the seat with the cowl?

Not sure if the cowl has the same gap / give in it to allow for a metal helmet buckle and strap to pass between it and the bike.

yeah thats what i thought? Anybody with a good pair of scissors and im $400 out of pocket!

i think maybe its worth looking at some lock i can put around the physical chin bit of the helmet with the visor up?

Any lock that would be convenient to carry while on the bike, would also be really easy to cut with wire / bolt cutters (not even a really big pair would be necessary).

If someone wants your helmet, they will get it.

If you are worried about theft, the only guarantee you have is carrying the helmet with you.

Yep. The cowl has a little gap on one side to pass a helmet strap through.

Well ****. I guess I didn't search hard enough. I just upgraded to the Exo-1100 Street Demon. Retails 299.95 but I picked it up on ebay for $165. Sniped that deal with seconds to go. It's really comfortable and I love the graphic scheme.

Good thinking. Better safe than sorry.
