Helmet Lock Relocation to Sissy Bar by Ron Lokey

Below is a photo of where I relocated the helmet lock on my V-Star 1100. Cost nothing and takes very little work.

1. Remove Sissy Bar and file notch in extreme end to accommodate locating pin in helmet lock assembly. (One might even consider just grinding off the pin). This allows the lock assembly to set flush on the sissy bar surface.

2. Grind off end of TOP BOLT holding sissy bar on such that it only protrudes half way into sissy bar. (this allows room for helmet lock bolt to come from other side)

3. Grind off end of HELMET LOCK BOLT to proper length so that it holds helmet lock assy secure without bottoming out on other bolt. (might even use a drop of locktite).

4. Both bolts still have at least 1 bolt diameter of thread engagement. Not ideal, but more than satisfactory.

Enjoy,
