Yes they have a very good rep, they have been in EU for years and just like so many things that come to the US takes time and $$$$ for those pesky DOT / Snell
labels. Plus the US market is always so sue happy many companies dont like to sell here. Take suomy and shark they are also top notch helmet that have been in EU for many years and they have only just come into the US in the last 2 years.
I have owned 3 Arai helmets whci 2 are RX7's and that is a great helmet. I think this OGK is right with it, feel light and the contruction is great. My fovorite feature though is removeing the face shield as it take all of 5 seconds. If you notice in on ofthe pix above on the side pods a black oval shaped button. All you have to do is raise the sheild all the way push the black button and pull the sheild straight out then do same for other side. Cant believe how simple it is, I always feel like I am going to break my sheild on my Arai RX7RR4.
I Installed a manual APE CCT 2 years ago. Ever since I've had a strange " buzz" while in gear throughout the RPM band 3-5k+. Some shops just sit there and rev it and say it sounds " normal" without riding it. Usually does it underload and in gear.
It has gotten persistently louder over time...
I know this sounds like a stupid question but who in the heck is Leyla? I'm referring to the back story on Leyla edition for the 2010 cbr600rr. I was just wandering where they got idea to paint a chick on the fairings of a cbr600rr? I checked Google but couldn't come out with anything.
