broken side clips on Shoei RF900 helmet..fixable?

hey everyone!

I crashed a couple weeks ago, and damaged my shoei RF900. the shield broke off upon my head hitting the pavement. Before I even send the helmet to shoei for a checkup, I was wondering if this broken side clip is fixable... if not, no point in me even sending it to shoei.

Thanks!

If I'm looking at the pic right, its a simple fix. Its just a peice of plastic used for a hinge thats held inplace by two screws on each side. Its no big deal to replace them, but get the helmet looked at, it looks to have taken a good hit.

I would get a new helmet, even if the helmet doesnt look damaged it can be totally destroyed under its outer shell.

Shoei website has parts for a premium price. Still cheaper than another helmet. I broke my pinlock lever last year, and got a replacement there.

Here is a start point for you:

I read this claim somewhere else before but when I crashed couldn't find one, single reference to it on the Shoei site so I seriously doubt that's the case. I suppose if you want to be certain you'd have to call them.

I tossed mine out. The lid reached its one-crash limit

I could just see the advertising, "Buy Shoei. You'll never have to purchase another helmet ever again." "Shoei. Replaced free for life."
