Scorpion Exo-1100 and headset install

Postby Mag » Sat Oct 12, 2013 12:01 pm



Hey all, Happy Saturday.....so it is raining outside (go figure here in the NW) and I bought an Exo-1100. Love the helmet, has the flip down sun visor, goes right over my presript glasses, NICE!! I have an older J&M headset that was for an open face, so it has the wider speakers. I took the inner liner out of the helmet and found the ear recess on the helmet, but they are not deep enough.

Has anyone done an install on this helmet, and did you actually cut out that ear section? I want to make sure I do not void the warranty on the helmet at all if I can help it, but having the speakers in, they are not deep enough.

Any info is always appreciated, thx all!!

Our helmets have to comply with the Australian & New Zealand standards, which, of course, are different to the US, European, and English standards. So we have a different, and more expensive, set of helmets. Although I read your comments carefully, I cannot comment, because of the differences between the US standards and the AU standards. You wouldnt think that us in the SW Pacific have different shaped heads - but then again, I suppose ours are not so 'pointy'.

lol, I try to find those dunce cap lids, they are always sold out. Have you seen those "Predator" helmets? Now those are cool, and I only need $750 for one ;)

There are circle spots that mark (I would assume) where the ear pieces go. But when I install there, and put the helmet on, there is a lot of pressure to my ears, uncomfortable. Thinking I would cut in to the circles, which would also cut in to the foam of the helmet to get the ear pieces deep enough. I just wanted to see if anyone else had the same helmet so I am not recreating the wheel on this.
