Depends where I am or what I'm doing. Usually if I go somewhere that I would need to lock my helmet, I'm usually going with a friend that has a lock on their bike (or in their car). If not, I'll usually just carry it around with me. Very rarely will I go somewhere and just leave it on my handle bar. Not only was it an expensive helmet, and looks pretty to some thief, but then how would I get home? I do have a bag that has a helmet "bag" attached to it, but I've never had to use it.

I want to rig something up under my seat too. I dont think to many peeps know how to pop the seat on these. I had no idea before the dealer showed me.

Someone made a seat lock on a 690 by fastening a piece of metal to the back end of the seat that went under the gas tank cap.

Then the only way the seat could be removed was if the gas cap(with key lock) was removed. I thought it was ingenious idea and think you could rig up something similar for a helmet lock.

I searched but couldn't come up with the pics... maybe someone can find and post the link.

I just carry a small padlock in my pack and lock it through the helmet D-ring on the chinstrap and then to the metal bar on my aftermarket handguards. I have heard of people using gun locks too by looping them through something and then something else.

fastbusa; I dont know how to link but the ingenious seat tab anti-theft mod your talking about is pictured in the "690 smc riders-post your mods and pics" thread sticky'd at the top of the KTM page. It is on page 12, post #586 by "Jairo".

Linking to an individual post is a little more "tricky" than copying the URL at the top.... plus I know you are of the computer age...

imagine someone your parents age trying to figure it out... my dad doesn't even know when to single vs double click.... :lol:

Yeah guys! I know, I know!! Im working on the link thing!!!! How about a quick "How to link" tutorial?
quick guide.... if you just want to link to a thread... just copy the www.supmotojunkie......stuff at the top and paste it into the post.

To link to a specific post within a thread.... right click on the post number located in the upper right corner of each person's post. For example this post is #13 and yours above was #12.

"Copy link location" and paste that into your post.

Simple enough? :thumbup:

I just bought a (Helmet Lok). The 625 also lacks any type of place to lock a helmet effectively.

We'll see how it goes, I just got it.
Thats actually pretty slick, even with that cable to thread thru your jacket or whatever. :thumbup::hmmm:
