I have tons of o-rings, I might try that out. The HJC hinges are definitely weak and sloppy.

Hmm I ride with my HJC shield cracked almost 100% of the time. Either 1/4" if it's cold or an inch or more if it's hot..or are you talking about riding with the whole chin bar up? I only do that when in my neighborhood, but it doesn't fall down then.

I just refurbished my HJC with a new visor and side plates from revzilla. Huge difference! I guess it wears out over such a long period I never noticed.

I'm not sure (for me) whether it's worth the money. My HJC has pretty much been given the backup helmet spot because I like my scorpions better.
Been looking at scorpion modulars now.

I have the C4. I like it, but have had to send it back to Schuberth service center 3 times due to the com. system. I have the C4 Pro Carbon on order.
I've also had the Nolan N104. Great helmet too. They current model for the Nolan N104 is now called N100-5.


I love Modular because sometimes I'll have a chew. Gotta spit. The other thing I like about the C4 or C4 Pro as well as the Nolan is the size of the visor eye ports. They are large and visibility is BEST in class!


About the C4 vs. C4 Pro or C4 Pro Carbon. The reason I have the C4 Pro Carbon on order is because Schuberth made the C4 Pro and C4 Pro Carbon to allow a large size to fit into the smaller of their two shell sizes. The C4 required a large size to fit into the larger of the two shell sizes. The smaller the shell the lesser the noise and the lighter the weight.


Ride safe!

Just bought an LS2 Valliant all. I really like this helmet. The chin bar flips all the way to the back so you can ride as a three-quarter helmet as well as a full face helmet. My previous helmet was a full face scorpion which I loved but needed to upgrade as I had been wearing that helmet for 10 years. I decided to try modular as my wife loves her scorpion GT 920 modular. Only three rides in but very happy so far.
