I got one of these... http://www.afxhelmets.com/helmets/fullface/fx-37ds.php?show=flat

DS = Dual Sport = on/off road... :p Which I do with my little Ninja... I mainly wanted it for the cap, to use as sun visor, so that I won't have to ride one-handed every day for the next month going home... :p

In the mean time, I've found out a few things:
1.) It's not molded to the shape of my head, which means mods:

It hurts here:


Which means I pull back the liner, and try and cut a bit out with a razor blade and realize I'm going to screw something up...


So I then mark the spot with a sharpy...


And add electricity in hopes of not screwing something up...



Excess material removed:


Cleaned out with an air compressor:



Ah, fits so much better:


Without the sun visor:



With the sun visor:





The best part: it only cost me $140... :D Brand new.

And ya got some Quantum Solace/Halo/Spooph silliness happening!!!

Crushed, I hear what you mean... :p A fist actually, no?

And Met, I asked the guy at the shop about it, and he said it's not a problem. It becomes a problem when you actually start compressing the foam, because then you're affecting it's ability to absorb shock... Considering the amount of material I took out - maybe 1.5 mm, they said it shouldn't affect the helmet - they do it all the time to make their helmets fit. This includes Shoei's and Arai's... Some helmets are made on an oval shape, and others on a round shape - turns out this is a round helmet, and my head's an oval....

They also said if I had to take out more than 2.5mm, I should go up a size, but this one fit beautifully everywhere else, ya know?

So I'm not just a hack, at least I'm an educated hack.. :p

I think my head is kinda pointy, but my helmet fits OK anyway.
