Helmet Question

Ok so I have an AGV helmet, the Stealth one. I don't know why but I can't ever hang it up on my bike when I am parked. I always have to carry it with me. A couple weeks ago I saw Glenn had this thing that came with his bike he said that you hang your helmet from that which attaches to the bike. It's just like this rubber strap or something. But I can't find it or don't know what it's called.
Does anyone with an AGV Stealth have this problem or anyone know what I can get so I can strap my helmet to my bike?

Bikes can be replaced...people can't...ride safe!!

Check under your rear cowl. There should be a little metal clip that you hook your helmet ring on. Then simply close the cowl and it will lock in place

I know that dude.. what I am saying is that the strap on my helmet doesn't reach ... the cowl wont close.. the strap is too short.

The strap came with the bike. Find a wrecked 600rr and grab it. I'll see if I can find one for you when I pass by Fasttrack in Des Plaines.

When I bought my 600RR last year it didn't have a helmet strap either and I went to Lowe's and bought this rubber o ring thingie. I have no idea what it's called but it was only a dollar or two and it worked perfectly. In fact, I noticed about 10 minutes ago that my new bike has almost the same rubber rings mounted on the inside of the rear seat which I am assuming are for the same thing.

the F4i helmet hooks are differant than the RRs. some helmets straps are too short for it with the cowl and shit, your just SOL.

I have never strapped my helmet to my bike, i just set it on the seat when i'm sitting at Panera

She should still be able to use the straps to gain x-tra length. several bikes use them. I know R6 and ZX12's do. Do some reasearch and find the cheapest one.
