Default Re: Windshield noise advice needed

Just been looking at my helmet online (shoei qwest) to see if I can order any accessories for noise and saw ďreplacement ear padsĒ. My helmet Iíve had for a few month has a void around the ear which I thought was supposed to be there, turns out itís not and mine didnít come with any or has fallen out around the time I bought the bike. 7.99! I just ordered a 70 quid new screen last night

If this fixes it Iím gunna be ****ed off and buzzing at the same time.

Might not tell the Mrs though, the screen will look nice

Well.... my ear pads arrived for my helmet, they didnít make any difference that I noticed, which was a shame because it would have been a lot cheaper.

I bit the bullet and fit the double bubble screen, itís definitely better, not night and day better but itís decent. I had a play around with seating positions and arm positions and where I am naturally on a bike is in the best spot noise wise with this screen so itís good. Also when I look over my shoulder on the motorway my head doesnít try to unscrew itself as much which was nice. And it looks great in black.

Definitely a lot happier anyway

its the qwest.. they are noisy and if you dont get the visor fitting correct you get whistling and buffeting like thumping in your ears. nothing helps but wearing earplugs.

I thought they were supposed to be really quiet. The visor seems ok I canít hear whistling, Iíll have a look and see if I can tighten anything up. The shop fit it all so it should be good. Then again... they missed out the ear pads

No amount of messing with screens and helmets is going to lower noise enough to prevent hearing damage. It's earplugs or hearing loss in the long term.
