Small upgrade

I have a Shoei RF900 that I love but it was very noisy and did not breathe very well in hot weather. After doing a lot of research, it came down to the Corsair RX-7 and the X-Eleven. I tried both and liked each one but the Shoei seemed to fit just a tad better on my head. My RF900 was a great helmet but if you turned to either side you would get tons of buffeting and noise. The X-Eleven does not do that. In fact, it’s so comfortable and quiet compared to my RF900 that I cannot believe the difference. And, all of a sudden my ZG Double bubble works just fine. So, I can only believe that it was the RF900 that pushed my head back so hard.

To me, this is a big upgrade even though the cost of the two helmets is not that much difference. I have to say that I did not try out the new RF1000. It is supposed to be a fantastic upgrade from the 900.

Just my opinion.

Nice helmet, Lazer! I care about my noggin', but haven't invested the money in a helmet that others have. I've stuck with the HJC line and it does okay. I will probably upgrade next year and look for either an Shoei or Arai.

I had a Suomy Spec-1R replica that I loved. It was so light and fit like a champ and not really noisy. It got damaged when I got rear-ended about a month ago, so I just switched to AGV XR-2 Rossi Icon (because I got an awesome deal on it). Its supposed to be top notch as well and very quiet. I'll update once I recover from surgery and start riding again.

Its amazing how much a helmet can make a difference in a ride. My first helmet was a cheap $150. The helmet was heavier then cow poop and caused me to have lots of neck pain on my zx7r. In fact, I started to not wear a helmet on the average because of it... It just wasn't near as fun to ride with that piece of sh$%.

I bought an Arai helmet with my Busa; lightest one they make... Never thought about neck pain again to say the least and I never leave home without it...

Superbusa, those are Tobin seats made by one of our own. Here is the info on them:

I just bought a OGK FF4 lid online from a guy at www.topendz.com

it is a Dave Jeffries replica, and will look sweet. OGK is big in Japan, and was recommended by a racer co-worker.

Probably the lightest around at about 1370 grams.:cool:

Hey, Vulture, I think those can protectors look pretty cool! After I get my slip-ons or full system I might need to pick up a pair!
