Sweet full face comment and question
I recently bought a sweet full face rocker helmet. However, just wanted to share that it runs small, if my helmet is indicative of the rest. I bought the M/L size, which is supposed to fit melons 7-7 3/4. Mine is 7 1/8, but even without any inserts utilized fit very tightly. It also seemed to squeeze a lot at the sides. As it turns out, the helmet without inserts is perfect for my melon but I had to implement a quick fix. I placed a circular disc weight used for weight lifting into the helmet so it spread the ears out. I pushed it all the way down so it spread the whole thing then I placed it in the sun for two hours. I removed the weight and this morning wore it for an hour with no discomfort.
Now I have a quick question that might cause a bit of dissension. I do not find the jar guard that cumbersome, but would nevertheless like the option to remove it when I'm not running creeks, like big pushy river running. The jar guard is a separate piece of plastic that is riveted in two places on each side. I would like to cut these and replace with flathead screw nuts and bolts. Just curious if anyone has done this and to what effect? Thanks for reading
