Lids

I want one for pillions and was wondering who made the safest, medium price lids. Preferably one that is a comfortable fit for most head shapes. I got about 150 to spend, this will have to outlast a few girlfriends BTW

If a lid doesn't fit properly (which it won't if you're just buying it for random pillions) then it's not safe.

Everyone has different shaped heads, I would guess a lot of people fit Arai based on their popularity, but that's probably out of your price range anyway.

All my girlfriends so far have wanted to ride my bike. And I have been unable to due to lack of a lid. I don't really want to buy each and every one a lid cause they are not exactly long term relationships. Maybe I will just not carry a pillion. Its more fun that way anyway.

powersport are knocking out Shoei XR800s for £110 (ask Zanx!). Brilliant value as they were £255.

Apologies if the plug offends.

I have to sell my Arai as it is too small. It is new, visor sticker not removed and never been used.

It is going for £150 no offers.

You can call me on 077477 65580 or email me on hellsbudha@yahoo.com if interested otherwise good luck with getting a lid.

buying lids

How do you go about choosing a lid...

I have a Shoei RX-R that I bought when I was training. It seemed to fit really snuggly - in fact it ripped my ears off when removing it, but now it lifts at speed and also the visor/chin guard gets pressed into my nose.

When I go to buy a new lid, how do I ensure that this won't happen - I presume that you cannot test drive a lid???

Don't ask me I have the same problem. They say go as tight as possible. I think it is best to figure out where a helmet is likely to give the most and then try to get a tight a fit as poss on those areas. Unfortunately did not work for me - see post above.

why don't you buy a lid that fits yer current gf and then only go for ones with the same head shape in future. Could take the lid out with you - could be like cinderella's slippers

Nice idea, hi you look nice and shapely try fitting on this lid. If the lid fits you shall be mine Thing is I could get her a cheap lid but I would like her to be as safe as poss. Even if this means her not riding the bike.+
