Helmets

Does anyone find that once the helmet has been on for a while, say 30 minutes, that your ears start hurting due to the interior of the helmet?

Just wondering if there is ay solutions ot this or what your experiences are?

If that is happening - you need a different helmet. The fit is wrong.

+1.

Different manufacturers make helmets for different shaped heads.

Some are more oval, and some are round, so even if your helmet is the right size (S M L) it might not be the right shape for you.

Need a refit. You might have an Arai head or Shoei or a........but certainly no pain.

Yap, it usually has to do with something pressing against your heard. Like the speaker and mic.

The same pain happened to me, when I tried wearing a bandana under my helmet to soak up the sweat. The folded parts of the bandana pressed against my head and after 30 min of riding I got a head ache.

Let us know if it is the mic and speakers, if not you will be a different size helmet.

Problem sorted ended up being the piece pressing against my ear.. more room now in the helmet with that stuff out.

Cheers for suggestions

Good thing you have removed the speakers for a m/c rider must have TOTAL concentration on the traffic, the road, the traction or loss of traction on the road, ALL to stay alert & upright.

In my cage I might have he cassette in the automatic rewind with volumn below the volumn of many restaurants--being background music sounds. Though I have a great love for my type of music, it is common for the same cassette to be used constantly for the week or two I drive. So guess where my concentation is going, considering I do not carry a passenger?

when I say speakers were in it, the only thing connected was with my dads helmet, so that we could talk to eachother when on the same bike (when I was on the back of his). It was never used for music or telephone calls or anything like that though. Just to check up things were going good or to say "jeez what an asshole" to some cager cuttin us off
