    my helmet storage won't close on my sr factory

    hello, maybe you guys had the same problem or know how to fix it. My underseat storage for helmet won't close, tried to punch the back seat, push really hard, nothing work. Maybe someone could help, would be great.

    Check and see if something fell into the hole where the mechanism is. I've had that then found something in the hole. Don't punch it.

    After checking to see if something fell into the lock try some WD40 sprayed into the mechanism, a shot in the keyhole could help as well.

    Try putting the key back in the seat opening lock and turn it to the left - it is possible the latch is already in the closed position so closing the seat on it won't help.

    Is this a new development, or have you just purchased a new helmet? It's a well known limitation of the helmet department that only a few select helmets fit in. Also check that the rubber seal around the edges below the seat itself aligns with the groove, and doesn't jam when closing it.
