Over pricing?

Have a Shoei Rf-1000 (not plain, has color scheme) for sale. 1.5 years of usage. A couple small comestic scratches where it rolled off handlebars. Nothing major or impacting safety. Has a heads up display unit from Speed cheetach that is around $169. What would be fair pricing for this? I had set $300 and thought that was fair as the helmet new is $400+. BUT, this is new to me, what do you feel would be a fair price for a helmet with the radar rig so I make my price fair for a used helmet.

Tip?

? i don't follow. It rolled from the bike onto the cement to get a few scratches. You consider that a worthy reason to trash a $400+ helmet?

You may need to seperate. Not everyone who needs a lid has a radar detector.

You wont know if the helmet is trash or not unless you xray it for fractures, I know if you mail it to Shoei they'll test it but other then that yes it "can" be trash by dropping from your handle bars to the ground. Most likely it's not but you only get one head and it's better safe then sorry.

I'm sure they will xray it. They will do a visual and call it good or bad. If it is trash from that kind of fall I wont buy another one. Im sure it OK.
