Unfortunately, looking at the pictures, it seems that the lock goes through the chin strap.
I went to a show a couple of years ago and left my helmet on the seat with a flexible and very strong, lock going through the visor opening and around the rear grab handles. After a couple of hours I went back to my bike and my helmet was still sitting there. Unlike the two lads who had left their expensive helmets on a chin strap buckle 'lock'. A low life had just cut the straps and made off with the helmets.

.

The locks are designed to use the "D" rings in the chin strap.


Should someone cut the chin strap, the helmet is useless...

That is exactly what happened to the two lads I met at the show. If there is a soft fabric strap left it is easy enough to fit a new buckle with a needle and thread. Here in the UK and probably in the US there is a problem with teenage crooks stealing mopeds, they are hardly likely to worry about the buckle on a helmet. The only safe way to leave a helmet on a bike is a flexible high security lock through the visor opening and through the grab handles or wheel.
And take the visor with you or they will have that !

Why you gotta continue to piss on someone else's parade? Use them if you want, don't if you don't.

In all of my travels I've used them regularly and never once have I had a helmet or a visor stolen. In fact, I used one yesterday and lo & behold, God Almighty be praised, my helmet is still there.

There is no need to be offensive
All I have done is post my experience. The two lads helmets were fixed to their bikes exactly as shown in the picture. The straps were cut and the helmets stolen - that is absolute fact and they were distraught. No, it will not happen every time you go out, but sooner or later it may and the best way to avoid your helmet being stolen is to secure it properly.

First time I have ever read/heard of anyone ever having their visor stolen?? Never would have thought anyone would go to that much trouble.

My Schuberth helmet has no D rings and I on occasion cable lock it but not often. So far after 40yrs of riding ,I have not had my gear messed with. (looking for a block of wood to knock on)

What I find "funny" is Yamaha has been using these EXACT LOCKs for literally decades...

All of a sudden, their useless....???

I just design and make a bracket to attach THESE locks to the FJR W/O any mods.

Anyway, some pic's with the additional electrical tab for BMW style outlet (for heated clothing, battery chargers, air compressors, etc):

There's 6 versions for your bike (3 each side, no outlet, one outlet, two outlet tabs).


From $24-(no tabs) to $33 (double tabs) each, lock NOT included. Yamaha part # included so you get the correct assembly (to key the same as your ignition key).


For options, please e-mail me direct at [email protected] for options, prices, links, instructions, etc. PLEASE put the year FJR in the header in the e-mail so I don't delete it as spam...


Thanks..
