I just picked up an HJC KX-5 on the bay...
I recommend going to your local dealer and trying some on...
Once you've found one that fits properly and is COMFORTABLE...
Ask the dealer to see the discontinued models from that manufacturer...
I could have gotten the same helmet minus the Kawasaki lettering from my local Honda Shop for $49 out the door...
Instead I paid $119 shipped... Expensive sticker...:lol:
at least I got the size correct...
I was told once you find your size with that particular manufacturer...
it will stay the same within THAT manufacturer...
you need to recheck your size when choosing a different helmet manafacturer...
According to the size charts I'm right between a med./lg.
When I tried one on I could barely get an XL over my head...
and after it was on, I couldn't close my teeth...
I ended up being a true XXL...in HJC....
This is only the second helmet I've ever purchased...
So I'm NO expert...
Just relaying what I went thru last week...
The first was 20 years ago, and is a Simpson open face Nascar style...
I bought it for the VW offroad buggy I built when I was 18...
It is a Large...and it's a lil loose...
It still fits PERFECTLY...
Good luck..Ed3:D

I like HJC helmets also....nice product for a good price...there are better helmets, but I don't want to spend like $400 for one... gardog is also right about the fit, helmet brands run different so you need to try them on. I have 3 HJC helmets...I know how they fit, so I can buy online.

I use an HJC Carbon Fiber helmet and love it. Super light.

They are over $500, but I got it for 50% off at the loacal dealership. The deals are out there, even at the dealerships. Be on the lookout for Clearance sales. :D
