That seems to have done it as it has been quite a while since I did that and my weight is still nice and snug on the bar.
This actually best way to fix problem, not have this problem again after. It hold and hold and hold and hold and hold.

If any of you know golfers who regrip their clubs, a piece of grip tape inside the bar will hold the end weight securely.

Cherie, never had one. Just tested one once (liked it) but never did buy one.

As smooth at that engine is, this surprises me though.

A word of warning from one of my friends. He had his helmet on his handlebars in a similar manner when he stopped at the bar for a "quick one." Unfortunately, when a drunk guy comes out of a bar, he can evidently mistake an upside down helmet for a urinal. My friend discovered this the hard way.

I solved the problem by tightening the Philips end screw with an impact wrench. I just tapped it. It never got lose again.

Another helmet lock

I have a Givi V46 top box on my 650 with the black metal grate on top. I use an ordinary medium size padlock to secure my helmet to it. Mounted this way it is very secure and will not fill up with rainwater or fall off or be stolen when left unattended.

I thought the burger 400 was supposed to have some kind of helmet catch under the seat, but I never could find mine??

There are two Chappy, one on either side of the seat. With the seat open, look way down front, there are two matte silver "hooks" that you can hang the helmet d-ring on. But it's not very easy. It's actually quite difficult and I use them only as a last resort.

However, if you used them in conjunction with a helmet lock cable. It might be pretty easy. Something like this.
