Default How to Use Under Seat Helmet Hooks?

Anyone have any pics? I can't seem to figure this out. The 2 hooks are too far apart for my helmet strap around the bottom of the seat and allow the helmet to sit up right ontop of the passanger seat. Is it suppose to only hook around one of the hooks (left or right) and dangle either to the left or right of the bike? I want a way to be able to take a spare helmet for a ride w/out the fear of it falling off. Please post pics if you have some.

much appreciated it!

I don't have any pics yet but let me see if I can help explain...

First off you don't use both hooks, just one of the other so the helmet will be hanging to either side of the bike. I'd use the left side because the exhaust is on the right and if you've got a high mount it probably won't fit.

All you need to do is use the D-ring on you helmet and secure it on the hook under the seat. For my Arai, AGV and Suomy, the D-ring is on the left of the helmet, so my helmet faces towards the rear of the bike.

I've ridden with a passenger helmet like that and haven't had any problems yet (just don't leave anything inside the helmet as it does tend to move a little when you're riding on the highway)

Ya need one of then cargo nets to carry the helmet on the back, helmet in the helmet lock might scratch the bike.

this is what i do...

d-ring in helmet hook, and pulling out one of the luggage straps, tie the loose end of the helmet strap to the luggage loop.

Here ya go.. I made this pictorial for someone lastyear when they asked the same question..

Flip the seat over so it is upside down. Outlined in BLUE is the helmet hook. One on each side of the seat..



Next is a picture of the helmet attached to the seat..



Finally here is a picture of the helmet/seat locked onto the bike.




EDIT:: Ok now after writieng all of that I realize what your were asking No it's not possible to have the helmet attached under the seat and still have it sit on top of the seat. If you want to do this I recomend a CargoNet.

I sometimes take my spare helmet with me with it attached to the side of the bike like it is in the pictures but only if I'm going a short distance here in town otherwise I use a cargo net.

The straps do not connect to anything. The D-ring is the only thing that connects to the hook under the seat. You have to kinda work everything when you close the seat back up. What I mean by that is you have to make sure that you dont close the seat on the D-ring or the seat wont close properly. You have to make sure that it is sitting inside the trunk so that it doesnt scratch anything.

Edit: The straps under the seat are for hooks or a cargo net.
