    To anyone who has the rear cyclerack mounted, does it interfere with the helmet lock? I use the lock everyday to secure a helmet and/or a backpack. I've looked at a couple pics on the forum and it looks close...



    Thanks!

    Wished I could tell you! Put the full face next to it, and it looks like it would hook on. Backpack would be no problem.



    Is there a separate key for the helmet lock? I've got an ignition and a gas cap key. Piss me off the helmet lock doesn't open!

    My bike is one key for all three.

    Helmet locks tend to stop working pretty quickly.

    Works for me. Its a little tight, but it works fine.







    If you can't find it, grind it

    Yup,just like Rainman, I have a Cycleracks rack, and I always use my helmet lock. It does sit close, but I can still easily get to it and lock up my helmet.

    My gas cap and ignition were the same key but the helmet lock was different. I took helmet lock apart, stuck in the key, and then filed all the tumblers flat. I put it back together and now all three work with the same key. Easy.
    Long live the internal combustion engine!

    Sounds like there were some key/what they fit changes thru the years.

    My key works on everything. Maybe your helmet lock was changed at some point?
