The installation instructions could be better, and I required someone to hold the big pieces in position in order to attach them. The quality of the included parts and the welding is good. I had to bend and/or pry some of the pieces into position in order to have the holes line up, but I think this is to be expected because of the free form of the design. I did not have to re-drill any holes.
I think the finish is moderate, and only time will tell of the finish durability. I like the looks of the motorcycle better with these mounted. I think frame rigidity is enhanced with the lateral brace that is between the cylinder block and the carburetor joining left and right brace together. I hope to save money if (when) the bike goes down doing some of the great off-road adventures I want to do.
When asked by my father who has ridden motorcycles for over 40 years if he could ride my bike; I replied, “Sure, I have just put on the training bars.” He doesn’t think my brand of humor is funny.

I really enjoy this helmet, so don't be put off by these observations. This is the first helmet I've used in ten years.
I find both face shield and sun visor to be optically clear. The face shield does tend to fog, but four 5/64" holes around the rectangular tab have helped much. Though the face shield does not have a fixed notch position for just open, it works well there. The other notches for shield location are well placed.
The sun visor works well. It has good coverage and does not touch my nose. Finding the lever takes practice.
It takes a firm click to put chin bar in place, and the release lever works well. I must raise my chin to turn head sideways to look in the blind spots, but think the neck support offered by helmet/chinbar would be good in a crash. With chin bar down, front to back balance of helmet is good.
I find that there is high pitched wind noise, especially with top vents open. This is reduced when turning head sideways. I have no other experience with vented helmets though. I do enjoy the ventilation, and closing the vents works well on rides in the 30's (F).
I am really glad I tried on other helmets in nearby motorcycle dealerships! (I suggest prospective helmet buyers do the same.) The measurement guide would have me order Large, and my normal hat size is L/XL. My XXL helmet fits well, just slightly larger (more round) than other XXL helmets that I tried.
