I just got a new Bell moto8 & love it, very light weight & incredible venting standing still or moving. Has a removeable liner & comes with a spare visor & a cool bag with pockets for goggles, gloves... etc

Stay away from the M2R's. Every rider I have ever seen fall in one went unconscious. That spooks me about them.

Arturo, I have a green KBC dirt bike helmet, size large, you can use until you get a new lid. I have a couple of others so I don't need it. It is in good shape.

From my experience and what I have read, KBC's are decent helmets. They make helmets for a few other helmet companies as well.

Bell moto8 for $190 - http://www.ridegear.com/rg/item/F-40...o-Helmets.html
I wear a Fox V3 that vents well and is VERY light, less than 3 lbs. It comes with a spare visor and killer bag as well. - http://www.rockymountainatv.com/prod...FamilyId=11103
The Thor Force is a badass lid, was my 1st choice but I couldn't find a deal. - http://www.rockymountainatv.com/prod...FamilyId=14531

I have a real nice blue fox helmet I paid 250 for a couple years ago that I could sell you. I have a fairly small head though. I personally like the fox helmets, I've used a few of them and never had any issues, very comfortable.
