Go to a good Bike Gear shop like Motorcycles Unlimited or 2 Wheel Toyz that has a large selection and also knowledgeable people. If you are close to Dallas or San Antonio go to a MotoLiberty. You will not find a shop with more knowledge about the gear they carry IMO.

Don't know if it's current or 100% accurate but here's a table describing among other things the internal shape of the helmets listed. Hope it helps.
