Helmet headset

Post by Scott Garrabrant » Tue Sep 20, 2016 8:45 pm

I just bought an 07 wing and my OEM Honda headset from my previous 04 wing will not connect. My old helmet has the Honda OEM headset, my just purchased 07 wing has a 5 prong female end with what looks to be the same pattern as my 04. Has anyone else run into this problem ?

Honda has used the same 5 pin DIN setup since 1980. Female on bike, male on headset.

First, welcome to the forum.
If you look inside the male and female ends, do they look like they will fit?
I upgraded my headsets about a year ago and had an issue with the new ones having a "dust seal", or extra lip around the outside that made it very difficult to push together.
I whittled out a little bit of the inside of the lip to make it less snug and haven't had a problem since.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood!
