I wouldn't try it. I had a flip up helmet break when I crashed on the street going about 30. Wouldn't want to imagine what would have happened at 90

Full face DOT/Snell approved helmet not older than 5 years (a flip-up helmet is not a full-face helmet). That was posted on most of the major track websites, so i doubt it.

From what I was told. You will never find a flipup that is Snell approved. And trackdays/raceorgs want Snell approved helmets.
A flip up is still a full face helmet as long as it's closed, but it won't ever be Snell approved.

This encompasses things like a bellypan not being needed on any given motorcycle. Thought I'd pass along the info.

So to answer your original question, a modular, if DOT certified, would most likely pass. Whether or not any single person in particular has an opinion on using one is useless however regarding your original question.
Thanks for following upon this, and the clarification as well!
