Bell Sena SMH-10 Clamp Kit
Excellent product - well integrated
Only issue I have is that it would have been nice to be able to reinstall the plastic cover when the Sena unit is not installed on the helmet.

Poorly thought out
Excellent concept, poorly executed.
The Sena SMH-10 is difficult to get latched into this unit once installed into the helmet (no problem to do with the clamp on style mount).
With this installed into the helmet, they made no attempt to seal around the massive hole that is cut into the helmet. This is the cause of significant wind noise in your left ear the entire time riding. (for argument sake I tested a clamp on kit with a different helmet, and didn't have any wind noise)
This kit does not come with velcro adhesive pads like the clamp on style mounts do, which are required parts to install the speakers into the earpieces of the helmet.
Why would they put a boom microphone on a mount that is going to be permanently attached to only one helmet. A fixed mount stick to the mouth guard of a helmet would have been more reliable.
I guess that this part serves its practical purpose, and you are required to buy it if you are choosing to go with a bell helmet designed to integrate the sena bluetooth.
My advice, buy a different helmet and clamp your bluetooth to it, you will be happier overall.

This product is awesome
Sena hit the nail on the head with is product. It installed on the sena bell mag 9 helmet easily. Voice quality is great, easy to set up. Also, get a lot on compliments on the styling and clarity of the unit while talking on the cell phone at 65-70 mph. All in all, I am very pleased with the product and no longer have a screaming wife behind me. On that point the product just might work too well!

Sena is a great product
I have three minor issues.
First, is the need to even buy this unit since already had Sena unit itself. But they change the design requiring the need to purchase.
Second, the instructions are a bit lacking on the cheek pad replacement once the unit is installed and appears to leave a slight air gap.
Third, the unit is very tight connecting the main communicator.
The device works great and is just as good as the main part to a full face. Sound is excellent for music. I have not tried the phone side yet. But I do have the shorty helmet version and that works well so I would expect the same here.
Over all I am happy with the helmet and the communicator together.

All I have to do is move the Sena smh-10 module between helmets.
I ordered this extra clamp kit for a different size helmet. Now depending on which passenger I have with me, I just move the Sena smh-10 to that helmet.

Sena Clamp for Mag-9 helmet
Bell Mag-9 specific clamp (& speakers & mic) attaches inside the shell via screw, making it unquestionably secure. I believe that it should be included with the Mag-9 Sena helmet, not sold separately. Because it mounts inside the helmet shell, the installation is very tidy but one sacrifices the 3.5mm audio jack that is a feature of the universal clamp that installs on the outside of the shell.

I purchased the helmet for its styling and fit. The integrated Radio was very cool ...kind of dumb to get the helmet without the radio. The hemet has a Radio fitment for the Mag9. You can't put cake pops or juju bees in it. The kit purchaced works as it should. It locks the radio into the Bell fitment nothing wrong with the kit. However the system is dissapointing but you are now stuck with it. So after buying the helmet you are locked into a specific and expensive system that works ok under 30 mph. Go any faster and the wind noise beats the communications. It's as if Bell and Sena stopped talking after the plans...it doesn't work like it looks; like it should for 300 bucks. It looks good but radio is useless over 30mph.
