I just never leave mine in an unsecure location. It is for recreational use only, I don't park it in a Walmart parking lot and leave it there for an hour. It would either be gone or laying on it's side, lock or no lock. I have uses a gun lock to lock my full face helmet to the handlebar. I wrap the cable around the chin bar, not just the D ring. They always seem to put helmet locks where either the helmet or bike or both will get scratched up. I bought a used bike once, the seller had used the helmet lock, it allowed the helmet to hang down on the exhaust. Melted plastic all over the exhaust, and a big melted place on the helmet. He offered to give me the helmet. I declined. It was not easy getting all that melted plastic off the exhaust. On my '02, I had the oem Kawasaki saddlebag mounting/turn signal relocator brackets, which required the helmet locks be removed from the seat rail. For a nice clean look, I took a Dremel and cut off and ground down the helmet lock brackets. There was a place on the accessory saddle bag mounting/turn signal relocating bracket to mount the helmet locks, but I used those holes to mount a flag holder, since I am a member of the Patriot Guard Riders.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
