Hey guys! One of my friends gave me one of his helmets that has been sitting out in an old shed for a couple years... I really like the look of this helmet and I'm wanting to clean it up so it can be worn. Its got a heavy musty odor on the inside and the padding is just disgusting. I was wondering if there is any possible way that I could eliminate that smell and get this helmet in wearable condition. Any product suggestions or cleaning tips are much appreciated.

Holy rusted D rings.. I would order new padding, so it forms to your head properly. If you don't want to do that, take the pads out and throw them in the washer and put them back in the helmet.

Yeah, you can get new inside padding or just pop them out and wash them. But the D rings should be cleaned....lol.

dude, that helmet is most likely shot, garbage, paperweight, junk, game over.
the part that actually does the work to save your skull is probably deteriorated.
if i were you, id give youself some piece of mine.

buy my ARAI and know that you have something worth putting on your head.
its even under warranty still, the link is in my sig.

i would NOT wear that thing man...

Yeah you're right. Once a helmet is dropped its shot. There is no telling what this helmet has been through. I'm not using this lid as my personal helmet, Just something a passenger could use. Then again, If you're getting on a bike, all you're stuff should be legit.

Ill look into it more, and if it turns out to damaged, it'll be cleaned and in my room for a little decor.

i would be more concerned with the core of the lid being compramised over the state of those D rings

True....I guess I just assumed the core was A okay....but I guess that is a strong possibility that it is shot as well....

With my helmets that I have dropped, I cut the straps off and hang them on my garage wall as souvenirs....:drunk:

time and conditions will wear a helmet down,


check the MFG date, if its rusted it was not kept in a dry place, so that thing is toast,


I wouldnt put a passenger in that,

just grab a cheap O and now you have a nice wall decoration,

watch the video, its great info on properly sizing your helmet, which actualy promted me to sell my arai rx-7 medium, to get a small.
i ordered a new Bell star speedfreak.

also, the representative from Arai answers an old debated question.

Is my helmet shot if i drop it from my bike or it falls off my bike and hits the ground etc :
the short answer is NO, since your head was not inside the helmet to react with the core, the core is not damaged or compramised. now a drop from an over pass on a freeway, idk, mb itd be done for haha.


but watch the video, its a really good and informative
