Default Extra helmet locks?

The factory helmet lock on my wife's C50T is a real PITA to use and there is only one. Are there any aftermarket helmet locks available out there that aren't too pricey?

Thanks, Matt

I currently have one of these on my Concours. Anyone seen anything similar for the C50T?

You can move it. Search for several options. Also using a extension piece makes it easier to use. They are cheap. Helmet Lock Extension | 1320195 | J&P Cycles

I've never have locked my helmet on the bike in 26 years of riding, I just hang it in the footpeg off my highway bar. It did save my bike from more damage when a guy backed into my bike, the helmet keep the bike from hitting the ground

+1 I moved mine to the aftermarket rack, it allows me to lock it and rest it on my saddlebag - do a search and you'll find other options.

Webshots Outdoors, for the best in wildlife photography!
I mounted a Kury Helmet lock on my handlebars.
Works fine.,

I went to Walmart and bought two Winchester shotgun locks. Keep them in the saddle bag and lock each helmet to the sissy bar, resting one on each saddle bag.

I have a handful of cable style gun locks. Those will work if I can't find something similar to the Project D I have on my Connie.
