I bought this helmet to replace my aging, used and abused Nolan N102.
Beautiful helmet, perfect fitting, great workmanship but.... too noisy!!
When riding my Kawa C14, there is no improvement over the old Nolan but still bearable especially when I raise the tall touring windshield to near my chin.
When riding my Super Tenere, the noise is unbearable. I am playing with 2 screens (original and Givi) using the 2 positions and so far without success. The less noisier option is with the original screen at the lower position. I guess I need to buy a 3rd screen for touring, more like a barn door !!!
As a side note, I have a Shoei Qwest, my winter lid, that is much quieter when riding the Super Tenere.
I have no idea how to rate this helmet...it fits like a smooth glove...but noisy "glove". I am not a happy camper!!!

Akrapovic Slip-On Exhaust Yamaha XT1200Z 2010-2012 The Akrapovic Slip-On is an excellent choice for riders who do not wish to make excessive modifications to their bikes. It is an easy-to-install base level exhaust system component, and an excellent combination of production quality, performance, affordability and visual enhancement. The striking muffler with titanium muffler outer sleeve and carbon fiber outlet cap perfectly complements the lines of the bike. The Slip-On system is legal for street use. Power Torque the Akrapovic SLIP-ON EC Type approval EXHAUST SYSTEM radically changes this bikes performance. The increase begins at the low end, and keeps on growing right to the top of the range. Max. increased power of 3.4 HP is recorded at 6130 rpm. The increased power is available just at the right moment as the system shows its quality already from 2000 rpm up to 7300 rpm. The torque curve also gets a major boost, indicating the systems exceptional synergetic effects on the engine. NOTE Please check local laws before purchasing. Some modifications may be prohibited in some states.
