to match my blue rappy..anybody used these/heard of them?
The detatchable chin bar could pose some issues, but just curious what you guys think.

http://www.hjchelmets.com/csx2_rez.htm# I have this one in blue that matched my 350.

http://www.hjchelmets.com/clx4_vapor.htm# But I am going to get this style in red to match my 660. The blue looks very nice also.

I've been lookin for a helmet that would match my Rappy, (03 Black/Red)
I want one that is mostly black with some red like the Rappy but haven't had much luck yet though.
Right now I have a Bieffe, (spelling?). Just a cheapo I got off Ebay. It has a detachable chin guard too. Mixed feelings about that.
My daughter has a Vega. It seems to be more comfortable than my Bieffe even though it's kinda small for me.

03 Raptor Bone stock... Honest!

03/04 Raptor built from parts.
It's stock too of course...

that's a kids helmet, and those removeable chin guards are a bad idea.

I have a THH and it fits my BIG melon nice. Its pretty light weight as well. It was the best color match I could find to my raptor and I looked forever. Its DOT and SNELL approved so it cant be that bad. Not real expensive either.....

Well if the cost doesn't matter, I say go with a SHOEI helmet. My friend has one and they are extremely light and not bulky, but with a 500 dollar price tag, they scared me away.

For me that is too much money for something I'm going to scratch up on some trees. I can see spending that much for a street helmet. You are bound to fall off your quad, and if you don't fall off your quad you aren't trying hard enough.

Hey Spike how much did you pay for this helmet? I like it!
The blue one must be awsome too.
