You aint finding cheap shoei helmet unless used.
Internet mail order sites like baysideperformance are the cheapest u'll find.

thanks for the replies guys.

i checked out alot of sites and alot of the "cheaper" sites dont ship shoei out of the US and the ones that do arent too much cheaper. with that being said i ended up picking one up at a authorized shoei dealer.

Apparently, they don't even sell Bell Helmets up here. I had to bug a friend to use his credit card to order my Bell Star. Amazing helmet, i just wish it didn't fog up so much.

I got my Shoei RF1000 for under 500 awhile back from Modern.
Their prices are comparable to US so I don't buy any gear from online sites.
Also make sure you don't pay tax on the helmet.

Some pretty good prices on motomummy.
I'm looking for a new rf1100 after I busted mine last season due to a brake malfunction. Fml only had it for 2months.

marbod @ mspeed. Ask him wuzzup. His prices are pretty damn good and sometimes beat american prices without the need of a "combo" like modern.

FYI, fuck daytona
