That is good to know, the problem with the Star is the rear spoiler piece gets in the way when trying to fit the helmet, the Vortex definitely rear vents definitely do not protrude the way they do on the Star. I wonder whether the RSI will fit, it looks pretty similar to the Vortex.My XL Bell Vortex fits, a little snug though.
Now why in the hell didn't I think of that? So simple. :blink:I suggest you put the buckle side of your helmet strap into the case and lock the case. Presto, locked on, no extra key, plenty of room for your other "stuff," nice and safe.
Actually, that's not surprising. The Bell Star (and Vortex) helmets have notoriously wide shells and I've only been able to fit one in my topcase. I've sold quite a few of those helmets and looking at them straight on, I really wondered how these would fare aerodynamically.I am not sure this is the right forum to post this in, but if not, I am sure a moderator will move it to the correct place.
I am looking for advice on what, if any, XL Helmets will fit into the stock side cases. My 2xl Bell Star doesn't even come close and I know my 2xl is a bit big for me so I am looking for a new helmet and I would really like it to fit into the side cases.
Thanks in advance for any and all advice.
The only problem with your suggestion is that here in Alaska, my options for helmets are pretty limited.Here is a thought: Take the bike with you, find a helmet you like, and before you buy it, see if it fits in the case? Now wasn't that easy? But try the helmet facing both directions. It can make a difference on some of the bigger sizes or brands of helmets especially if you have a headset attached for communications.
