Motorcycle Accessory Warehouse has the best Arai prices from where I've been looking. But if you're gonna mail order (phone or internet) you'd better do it quick. From what I was told, Arai is not going to allow mail-order catalogs to sell their helmets. They apparently got sued by some idiot who ordered the wrong size and rode with it anyways and crashed. Dont know if this totally true, but its what I was told.
I have a Arai Quantum/e Raptor. Great helmet. I used it for racing only, but its gonna be a street helmet now since I ordered a new one for racing.

if ya want my 2 cents, don't waste your time lifting the phone for motorcycle accessory warehouse, i have tried ordering from them twice, and both times the said the item was in stock, and about three days later i got a post card in the mail from them stating the item was out of stock, in fact, the second time they swore the item was in stock, and i still got that post card, pissed me off !

M A W tried that same thing with me not long ago, so I called back and got to work my way up the ladder a little bit to someone that knew something, they told me they don't stock anything -they are a drop ship company, you order from them, they order from the man. or wharehouse. Don't know if thats the case or not, but thats what they said.

I got my ARIA signet/e rumble2 from competition accessories. Paid $359. no tax since it is out of state.
You have to haggle with them but they will come down.

Geez, I've had no problems with MAW. I get everything I order in about 1-2 weeks. The only place I've had any ordering problems with is Competition Accessories, but its not because of them, its Lockart Phillips. I ordered mirrors for my YZF back in April. Still haven't got them. Finally got a reason from Comp Acc. Apparently the glass falls out of the mirrors and LP is trying to fix the problem (likely story).
