I made a small, 10" long lanyard to lock my half face helmet up. I went to Home Depot and bought the plastic lined cable and swedges. Easy to make.
The white, half faced helmet you see in the picture to the left of the screen is the one I have to lock up with the cable. You see it in the picture sitting on the sissy bar but it doesn't go down far enough there to use the helmet lock that I had repositioned there on the sissy bar when I installed the hard mounted bags.
At the time I only owned a full faced helmet, which I positioned where you see the white one. Where the chin strap with the rings hung down to is where I positioned the helmet lock so the full face one can sit right there and be locked nicely.
Later I got the half face white one but needed to conjur up the lanyard setup. I just wrap it around the handlebar and let the helmet hang down.
If you don't like the factory thing by the seat, pay Home Depot a visit and make one for yourself.
