Installment is quick and easy. After purchasing your Helite jacket you will have to install the lanyard to your vehicle. The strap will stay attached to your vehicle at all time or can be moved from one vehicle to the next if you change motorcycle or own several.
Depending on your vehicle the lanyard will be attached and adjusted differently. The lanyard will ideally be attached around a tube of the frame with a standard, easy buckle. You will make a loop with the buckle at the most convenient location on the motorcycle, the closer to your gravity center when seated on the vehicle the better:
– It should be attached around a robust part of your motorcycle such as the frame that will sustain itself when pulling approx. 30kg.
– Keep it far from anything sharp that could cut your strap
– Keep it far from hot elements to avoid melting it
Try out the length and adjust it until you reach an optimal length. It should be tight when you stand up on your motorcycle. If the length of the strap is too long the inflation of the airbag jacket will be delayed and if it’s too short it could keep you from freedom of movement when standing up on the motorcycle. So the correct adjustment of your safety strap is crucial.
