Strange... I'm sure it's related to the bike, screen, person, but my GT-Air is the quietest helmet I've owned and I currently own 3 Shoei's - RF-900, RF-1100, RF-1200, a Lazer Mustang, an Icon Airframe carbon Pro, (and previously owned a bunch of others).
The GT-AIR II seems like it would normally be a good helmet. If I sit up straight (6' tall) I can get above that buffer zone and the helmet sounds great. It's just that the windscreen is pushing it right to the middle/bottom of the helmet. Overall it's not bad. I should be wearing ear plugs anyways. The SRL 2 is GREAT also. The first communicator I've had so I don't have any comparisons but I love it.
Spirit750, I'm assuming you have a 750? The 1000F has a spare "switched" connector under the tank that I used for a Powerlet plug socket which I installed into the fairing and I plug my detector into that. Maybe the 750 has one as well?
The visual alert sounds like it would be handy, but I use several different helmets and wouldn't want to switch back and forth. My best solution was to install the detector as close to my line of sight as possible.
Keep up the good work, sounds like you've done your homework.
Nope, I have the 1000F. I noticed a white plug up around the ignition switch that seemed like it didn't have a purpose. Is that what you're talking about? Any pictures of that set up? Sounds like it would work.
The visual alert is actually mounted to the windshield. I had one of the helmet mounts a while back and wasn't a fan either. As soon as I get this thing back together I'll get a picture.
Got the oil changed and the headers back on last night. Removed the PAIR and installed block off plates. Trying to decide today if I want to remove the evaporator canister also while I'm there.
I wasn't aware, but apparently Oli's mid-pipe is designed to be cut to length? The stock slip-on isn't coming close to mounting up. There is a lot at the end of the pipe that could be cut off so I'm assuming it's intentional.
