So i've been riding on the regular and gotten so used to the helmet lock and using it that i must have been in such a hurry to get home before the storm that i didnt fully secure my back seat, and upon arrival home (>30 miles) its gone..

i'm beginning my search for a replacement, i've already noticed that the Cowl goes over the seat so that wont work without having the seat im guessing. but given the city life this puts my bike out of commission until i replace it because if i can't lock my helmet it'll be gone

Can you stuff things into those cowls? I've never ridden without a quart of oil to get me home in case of a leak and a can of fix-a-flat and there's not much room under the seat for that stuff.

Cowl is seperate to the seat. I can fit amassive pair of wintergloves, a neck warmer and toilet paper in mine. 600ml coke bottle will fit, I even managed a can of chain lube, that was a tight fit!

I don't know if you can "stuff" things into the cowl but according to it's description on Honda's website, it "Increases lockable cargo capacity to 4 Liters."

I noticed it also says something about possible extra dealer fees for "installation." Just how tough is it to "install" one of these?

That has to be a generic disclaimer.
There shouldn't be any "installation". It replaces the rear seat. Turn key, remove seat, put cowl in place of seat and snap it in just as you would with the seat.
