GTR1400 / Concours 14 '08-'17 AeroForm Helmet Lock
by Joe Berkman Date Added: Wednesday 06 July 2016 - 18:55
Just received my dual helmet lock - seems well-made and just as advertised. Installation on my '09 was pretty simple, although I found it a little challenging to get all six washers located correctly when fitting the luggage rack bolts back in - would have been easier to do if I could have hung the bike upside down from the garage ceiling so I could have stacked the washers on the bolts and let gravity keep them there for me. :) Not being equipped to do that, I had to do a fair amount of cussing while hunting for dropped washers in the garage, but I got 'er done. Actually pretty easy, all things considered. Still puzzled as to why a bike like this doesn't come with helmet locks from the factory, though...

Shipping took about a week and a half, as they come direct from China as another reviewer noted, but no problem, and the item was well-packed with bubble-wrap. Instructions came separately by email - I couldn't find them on the website here but I'm sure there's a way to get a look at them in advance if you're interested in seeing those before buying. It's not difficult even if you're all thumbs like me.

The locking hooks dangle loosely when unlocked, so I think I'll be making sure to lock things back up when riding, otherwise I can picture them jingling a bit, but they seem to be nice and solid when locked. Threadlocker to make it harder for some random a-hole to remove the whole shebang, helmets and all might be a good idea (maybe even red LocTite), depending on the replacement cost of your helmet(s) - I'm not going to worry about that much myself as my current hats aren't worth a lot and it would take a determined thief with a tool kit and a fair amount of time to work to get this off the bike. (Especially if you have a top bag mounted to the rack, which I think would add significant complication to the thief's task. Maybe once I get a top bag and I'm happy with the whole configuration I'll slather everything BACK THERE with red LocTite and be done with it.)

I haven't hung helmets on them yet but the helmet position should be fine when locked. A nice (and badly-needed) add-on!
