Any recommended sites for an Arai or Shoei??

I decided to treat myself to a new lid and was wondering if anyone delt with motosport.com before?

After looking through the net for an hour or two, i found a decent deal on an arai (or so i think) and could use some input on it. I was looking at their closeout's for an arai rx7 corsair (tommy gun) for 450 shipped. Is this a pretty decent deal? Can anyone shed some light on this and this website?

you may want to check with our sponsors first. I know Motorcycles Unlimited has some great closeout deals sometimes... 2 wheel toyz might also be able to make you a good deal.

appreciate the heads up! Just pmed Patrick

Anyone have any input on motosport or especially the two lids? (rx7 and x11)

Both fit really well but didnt get to look at it too closely since the dealership was closing

i liked the tz-1 but fitment of the rx7, x11 was a bit better..

figured if im gunna blow some cash on a high end helmet, might as well go big or go home!

And plus.. i just bought the S.O. a better lid than i have right now so i feel weak man.. weak

I have an Aria rx-7 corsair...I think 58 cycle.com....
Its the site where they email you a better price for the helmet. Mine wasn't cheap but Arai fits my head the best. It was around 500.00 brand new.

which lid did you order. The real deal right because a lot of people say be careful when ordering online because they have a lot of fake lids everywhere online. Does anybody know how to notice a fake one from a real lid.
