helmet fix?

I've searched, but I can't find what adhesive will work on the silicone rubber trim for my helmets (both started coming apart at the same time).

Anybody know?

TIA, Brad

Racer X, Thanks, but no joy with super glue, rubber cement or silicone sealant.

I replaced the pads in mine because mine was coming apart. Mine is a very expensive hemet that is not yet 5 years old. It cost ~$105 dollars in new pads, but all is well now.

I attribute my pads falling apart due to the fact that I was storing it in the garage for ~8mos. I never had one do that until I started storing it outside. It now stays inside.

Mudbug, One (Arai) is 4 years old and not far from replacement time, the other (KBC) about a year old.

GAU-8, If that's the same as headliner adhesive, I think there's some in the garage. I'll try it on the KBC and let y'all know.

Thanks,
Brad

GAU-8, The headliner adhesive at least has some promise! Thanks again.

If you are talking about the arai helmet, sadly, its normal. if you contact arai-america, they will want you to send it in and they will GLUE it in place for you but they wont just send you the adhesive itself to you by claiming that we dont know how to glue it and they wont be responsible for damage helmet. so its your call fyi: it wont get any better if you leave it alone unless you pull the whole thing off.

1yammy, The Arai has already made the trip under warranty, about 6 weeks after I bought it. is the HJC I retired a year ago is still fine.

I heard that the adhesives aren't as good as they used to be due to envronmental considerations. Maybe.

1yammy, This is the only Arai helmet I've had any problems with since my first one in '85 (Doug Chandler replica).

The KBC was the test helmet. Worked for awhile, but let go after about 10 hours. Trim piece removed ... what electrical tape is good for.

Guys

You can send your ARAI back to them and they will replace the botom trim for you free of charge if your helmet is not older than 5 years.

Just shipping charges.
