Shark RSI Cheek Pads

So I got my brand spankin new Shark RSI helmet in today. Looks great in Matte black w/ graphics! Happy camper here.

I switched from a Shoei Multi-Tec in XL, which fit me a little too loose for comfort (in an event that I take a spill). So I got a LARGE in the RSI...fits too snug, but should be alright once the pads compress a bit. However, my cheeks are squished considerably. Beyond what any break-in can help me.

Where do I get thinner cheek pads for this thing? Or do I just have to remove the pads at night and set some books on top to break-in faster?

The same place that sold you the helmet can sell you the cheek pads. Take the cheek pads out, verify that the size is Lrg and order the XLG, which, should be thinner than the Lrg ones.

Tucker Rocky Distributes the helmet, if you bought it online, your local Dealer or shop should be able to handle it... here's the part number for the XLG C/Ps

74-1112 ----- XLG Pair Cheek Pads ----- $ 32.95 Retail

Didn't know you it was just a matter of padding sizes. Large and XL must be the same shell size I'd assume. I'll check into it. Thanks for the heads up!

I bought an rs2 not long ago and the cheek pads squeezed me a lot, but have gotten to a point that they feel just about right. Try the book thing before shelling out money on new pads.

Thanks lmtd. I'll try that out. I'll just use the old lid for the mean time.
