Open the seat.
Look at either side, near the seat pivot.
There are metal hook thingies sticking up.
What is the purpose of them? :?:

To hang your helmets on when parked up and your storage is full - hook your helmet strap on the hook and close the seat and it should be semi-secure.

I removed one of mine and used the threaded mount at the bottom for part of my airbag trigger :thumbup:

I have those on my Honda SH and my Burgman. Both scooters came with a 8" length of cable, looped at both ends that goes through the 'D' ring of my helmet strap before being hooked on the bracket. The seat is then closed so that you can only remove the strap when the seat is raised. I find it very useful on my SH due to the limited storage but I've only used it once on the Burg when the underseat was full and my top box wasn't fitted.

I use these helmet hooks regularly. If my good lady wife and I go out for day, we can get all our leggings, jackets boots and gloves under seat, secure two helmets on outside using these hooks then can walk about all day without all bike gear. Its these little features I especially like about the Burgman.

I tried using those stupid things a couple of times but finally gave up. It was too difficult for me because my seat will not stay up - so it requires me to use my three hands to utilize the so called "helmet hooks".

Instead, I use a short cable (8 inch, I think) which I loop around the left part of my handlebar between the mirror/brake lever bracket & the switch gear control unit. I have a small padlock on the cable which I use to "secure" my helmet's D-ring to the cable.

But I only use that for short stops because I use the underseat storage or my Givi topcase most of the time or simply take my helmet in with me if I'm going into a restaurant (especially in hot weather).

I've got a couple of carabiners that work real well. They slide fairly easily (unless you're in a hurry) over the hooks and also hook to the metal on your chinstrap.
