If I take the tags or visor sticker off, I can not return it. Ill keep it. I think its fine. If it doesnt loosen up a bit, after a few days of riding, I'll sell it. Or get new cheek pads.

takes a few rhours i would say or a few days of riding, it will start to adjust, sweating in it will cause it to be more loose too

Wow. I don't know what to say.
He said thanks for the advice and I said your welcome. That's smartassed?

I don't know him or how much he spent at Motorcycles Unlimited. I was just tryin to encourage him to go see Patrick, because I think they folks do a good job selling quality gear at good prices.

My X-11 gave me a slight headache the first week I owned it. After it broke in it felt like it was custom tailored to my head. Almost 30,000 miles have worn the cheekpads a bit though. I should probably look into getting some new ones.

If Patrick has cheek pads in stock, I would leave the stickers on and take it up there to try and see if you can get a more comfortable pair. If you're still not happy with the fit you would still be able to return it.
