Shoei Qwest / RF-1100 Cheek Pads
Product works great. Replacing 35mm pads with 31mm pads transformed a 1100 coffee table ornament into a comfortable full face helmet.

Greatly Improved Comfort
I purchased the 31mm cheek pads as replacements for the 33mm cheek pads that came in my RF-1100 helmet. With the 33mm cheeks pads in the helmet the fit was acceptable but a bit on the tight side (helmet is a Medium). I occasionally found that I would bite the inside of my cheek if I was chewing gum during a ride due to my cheeks being squished by the pads. After swapping to the 33mm pads that problem has been resolved. The fit of the helmet is still snug, but my cheeks are no longer getting squished.
Removal of the old pads and installation of the new pads was very easy thanks to the included instructions.
Changing the pads was a much cheaper solution than getting a new, larger helmet.

Exactly like the original, but different thickness
I had bought the size helmet that fit my skull, but the check pads pushed on my checks pretty hard.
I ordered the thinner pads and all is well.
They are exactly the same as the originals, only thinner.
Install is about 5 minutes. Simple to do, but takes some patience to get them perfect.

These cheek pads worked out great.
My Shoei helmet fits great now.
It is a little pricey but it is worth the price.

Makes my RF1100 fit my skinny head
My helmet fit the top of my head well, but it was a little lose arround my face. It now is snug and much quieter.

A must if you accidentally purchased a size to big of a helmet
I accidentally purchased the Shoei Qwest Lg helmet where I should've purchased the Md sized helmet. With this, head checks at highway speeds resulted in my helmet trying to rip my head off. I ordered the went with the size 39 mm and was pleased with the results. Head checks and the issue with the helmet moving about was gone. Would highly recommend.

Improved fit and reduced noise.
I purchased a Shoei Quest helmet a year ago. In the store, I thought the Medium was too tight, so got the Large. Over time, as the cheek pads wore in, I realized that I probably should have gotten the Medium. I replaced the stock pads in the Large with two sizes up and now the helmet fits great and it significantly reduced the noise level in the helmet, particularly on the freeway. Definitely a cheap way to feel like you just got a new helmet.

Product lives up to what's promised
I got what I expected from Shoei...an excellent product! I didn't rate the values because I think those are subjective to the person wearing the helmet. All I can say is I'm very satisfied with fit and comfort.
