arai helmets

Hey, I am curious as to what Arai owners have to say about their helmets? I just picked up the Hayden replica and spent way to much money. I can't figure out how the hell to change lenses. The system is so messed up, is anyone having trouble with this? Who else has an Arai and what did you pay for it?

running the signet gt and paid about high 3's for it .
I feel the same about the lens removal but after you do it a few times you'll get the hang of it.

I paid $700 for it and $80 for a tinted shield at a local dealership. I guess it just takes a couple practice runs to get used to it. My last helmet was an OGK and it was really easy to use. Thanks for the replys and I will have to look at the website!

$80 for a tinted windscreen or visor?

if that's $80 for a visor.......did they even kiss you? because you got screwed.

be careful getting stuff through local stealerships. 700 sounds pretty high.

peace.....and welcome to the board :)

Jimmy, it was $80.00 for a tinted visor. I figured the helmet was outrageous, but I was not sure how much the visor cost. I figured it should of been about $50 at the most. Arai has to be the most expensive helmet out there and it seems like the dealerships take advantage of that. Only through the dealerships can you get a warranty on the helmets. So that meant I had to go to a dealership. What have you paid for a visor?
