Purchased these 31mm cheek pads to replace the 35mm ones that came with my (medium) Shoei Hornet DS.
The helmet is great and the fit is excellent but was tight in the cheek area. The new pads allow a slightly looser fit in the cheek area.
Cheek pads were a bit picky on the order the buttons were snapped. Attaching back to front then top button worked best.
Helmet fits just right now.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Fit and finish is excellent. Cheek pads were a little snug at first. After a few days the helmet loosened up and is very comfortable.
The tab for opening and closing the face shield is located on the left side of the shield. Would be nice if they had put tabs on both sides.
Sun visor attaches at 3 points on the top of the helmet so the visor doesn't vibrate at speed. Also enough space for air to flow underneath the visor so it doesn't push your head back.
It is nice to be able to open and close the air vents. Especially the front one.
Yes, I recommend this product.
