Shoei Qwest / RF-1100 Cheek Pads
Not a direct replacement
I purchased the 31mm cheek pads to replace the 35mm cheek pads in my Shoei Qwest Overt helmet. I could not get the rear-most portion of the pad inserts to fit into place properly (near the back of the helmet). After a lot of frustration I realized they do not have the same cut-out configuration as the original 35mm pads to fit into a tiny tab towards the back of the helmet. The three snaps per side line up fine, but the rear portion will not stay in place like you would expect. I have to check it every time I pull my helmet off. Basically, not a true direct replacement.

Wish they had thinner cheek pads
Don't misunderstand my rating. The pads are exactly as represented, the problem is my head shape. A helmet that fits my crown is too narrow for my wide jaw. I hoped these 31mm pads would be thin enough, but they aren't and I've had to do major surgery on the lower part of the helmet. I may have to go back to an Arai since their cheek pads can be altered (some of the foam removed or shaped) because the cover is removable.
Very thin Shoei cheek pads would solve my problem.

Good, but still could use something smaller
I ordered size 31 the smallest to replace the 35 that the helmet came with but I still could use something smaller. Hopefully once they break in.

As new replacement parts
I bought a new cheek pad set for my Shoei RF1100 as the originals were way overdue and getting kinda squishy. The replacement parts fit properly (fit is always a concern with non-factory replacements right?), snaps and tabs located as stock. One button is a little weak and pops off once in a while but has not been an issue during wear. Good replacements, work fine, no probs. +1.

Awesome service as always
I replaced the stock cheek pads in my RF1100 with the next size up. Now my helmet fits perfectly.

My wife has high check bones and these fit much better than the stock size!

My 1100 fits my face better now. I'm happy. Nothing more to say.
