Shoei Qwest / RF-1100 Cheek Pads
Customizing Helmet Fit a Good Idea
Thanks to the help of the Gear Geeks at Revzilla I've learned how to customize helmets for a personal fit. I normally wear an XL helmet size however I can squeeze into an L.....so after input from Revzilla I have ordered cheek pads for the Shoei that have made the comfort/safety/fit of this excellent helmet just about perfect for me personally. With the XL that I did order and these slightly oversize cheek pads inserted as replacements the helmet has gone from really good to great as far as my personal fit zone is concerned.
Most modern helmets have replacement pads available in some variety of thickness. Using these (unfortunately there is an extra cost) allows you to vary the internal dimensions to just about perfection.
If you have a modern helmet that is slightly too large or slightly too small check with Revzilla and try some replacement interior pieces. Highly recommended.

Change it atleast once in 2 years
Guys, these replacement cheek pads and headpads need to replaced / refreshed atleast once in 2 years. It feels great to have a fresh set of pads. The fit of helmet improves tremendously and feels snug. Also the sweaty smelly old pad feel is gone. Go for it - change 'em now!

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.
