If it's anything like the Japanese bikes, it's for the helmet lock.
You loop it through the ring on your helmet strap, and then hook it somewhere under your seat and lock the seat down.
It probably tells you in the owner's manual.

You can use it to make a noose trap for small furry woodland creatures that you will need to eat when the bike breaks down on the trail

Actually it is probably just a helmut loop for locking multiple helmuts or through the face hole

+50 - helmet

I use mine for locking the helmet. I think they put that in the tool kit when they quit putting in the spark plug wrench. I'll gladly trade mine for a spark plug wrench... anyone? I'll throw in $20...

I just gotta have one of those 2 part wrenches with the splines.

Hi Aurel,

It's the helmet lock as others have said but I have no idea where it goes and it doesn't say in the manual.

You use it as a survival saw to cut down trees if you ever get stuck in the snow!

It's the cable used for the tire bead-breaker...

You could also loop it through the arm of your jacket and back to the helmet lock, to lock up your jacket and helmet...


and then use it to cut down a tree...

If the cable used for a tire (tyre for some of you) bead breaker had a small (wee for some of you) baby, it would be about the size of the helmet cable.
