I have had a C3 Lite for a year. It has not been a good experience. Make sure you have a Schuberth Head. For me, the helmet was not just uncomfortable but painful. A thicker liner fixed the forehead pain. The liner will need to break in (see Schuberth tattoo). Now, after a year, I am experiencing pain at the crown of my head. It is very localized, finger tip size pressure points at the crown directly above my ears. I love the features but....... make sure its comfortable and fits your head shape. I was a 1954 C-section, who knows what they used to pull me out. I'll be going back to Shoei or HJC as soon as I get out of denial.

FJet Thank you for posting additional pictures, GREAT pictures, the orange is spectacular, goes well with gold wheels. Like what you did with Aux lights. A truly "one of a kind FJR" GOOD JOB

I looked all over the Web to find some custom painted FJR's to see how they look when "other then Yamaha stock colors" but couldn't find much. I even photo shopped some variations;

The link you provided doesn't give a choice to "Like or comment" on your bike. You should create a new thread under; "FJR Sport & Touring - Gallery" so everybody can enjoy this fine looking (rare) Orange FJR.

Once my '17ES matte silver gets enough rock chips, I'll be doing my first wrap in pearl orange

Bought another spendy helmet (COVID19 and online shopping will cause me to go broke) and added a Shoei Neotec2 to my stable, which also includes an AGV Sport Modular Carbon (glossy). The Neotec2 replaces my apparently ancient Shoei Multitec (2013) for which I was having trouble finding parts (tinted visor and visor hardware – though the hardware I pirated off an old RF700 worked okay).

If anyone is interested in either of these lids, here are my empirically tested comparison findings. My disclaimer is Fit, Fit, Fit: Others’ opinions of a brand/model matters little if the helmet doesn’t fit your pumpkin. (Sorry Schuberth).

Also, attention my Canadian friends: The Neotec2 (in solid colours) is $776CAD from Pete’s Superbike (free shipping), VS $970CAD elsewhere, including FortNine (also free shipping). BTW, Pete’s also has better prices on tires until you add in the cost of shipping. Shipping a set of PR4GT to my location was only $5.00 cheaper from Pete’s (add shipping) compared to the same set from FortNine (free shipping anywhere and $10/pair discount).

AGV Sport Modular VS Shoei Neotec2

AGV good: Lighter, D Rings, higher “bling” factor (applies only to the versions where the carbon weave is visible), field-of-view, Pinlock included.

AGV bad: Noisy (compared to the Neotec2), XXL doesn’t fit in FJR saddlebag, chin room, ear room, sun visor not very dark (though AGV will sell you a darker one) and the lever is difficult to find/use.

Shoei good: Quiet, more chin room, more ear room, cheek pads extend further forward, sun visor and the easy-to-use side-mounted lever, ventilation (specifically the chin bar), Pinlock included.

Shoei bad: XL doesn’t fit in FJR saddlebags, thick cheek pads (but are breaking in nicely), ratchet strap (though it works rather well), zero “bling” factor.
