Motorcycle helmet lock for GS’s – Wunderlich have an ingenious solution for the perennial problem…
The System consists of a strong 5mm thick steel rope – silicon-coated so it won’t damage helmet or bike – and a spring loaded release, which bolts to the bike’s frame, beneath the seat.
To secure a helmet: unlock and remove the seat as normal, unhook one end of the steel rope using the spring-loaded release, thread through the helmet’s chin bar or metal D-ring, then re-attach the free end of the rope to the bracket and refit and lock the seat.
Unlike most on-bike helmet lock systems, both the spring release and bracket are locked under the machine’s seat and out of sight, so it’s impossible for any would-be-thief to tamper with the mechanism or lever the lock.
Since access to the release is protected by the seat lock, there are no additional padlocks or keys to carry around, either.
The steel rope is long enough to secure two helmets at the same time and, when not in use, can be conveniently stowed under the seat.
£39 inc VAT, comes with mounting materials and instructions – fits the 2013-on R1200 GS LC and 2014-on R1200 GS LC Adventure.
