View Full Version : New helmet slightly too big

Jul. 30, 2009, 04:31 PM
So I just got my IRH Xr9, and it is one size too big. If I put some of the padding in it, it fits alright, and if I put all of the padding in it fits perfect. I'm just worried that when I ride in it, it will stretch out and be too bit. I have already stuck some of the padding in it, so would I even be able to return it? I bought it from dover. This helmet it a 6 7/8, btw. I know I have a tiny head. haha.

If it doesn't fit, you need to return it. If you can't return it you need to sell it on ebay/whatever. Do not ride in a non-fitting helmet. Ever.

If it is too big now, it will only stretch a bit more and be even bigger around your head. I would return it if you can, otherwise replace the padding frequently so it stays snug on your head.

I'm going to exchange it. I talked to a rep, and she said it didn't matter that I had put some of the extra padding in. So yay! haha. I really like the helmet though for anyone who wants to know. :yes:
