    Opinion on Arai Helmet price?

    Have you guys seen these helmets?
    I have a chance to buy them but i want to see if the prices im getting are alright


    This is going for about 450 CDN



    This is going for about 550


    how are these prices?
    I am having someone bring it over from Hong Kong

    prices seem to be a lot more than expected (i thought helmets are really cheap there)


    ps These prices are from the place XENZ suggested

    Have your friend bring me over an RX7-RR4 for $550, that is less than half of what they go for over here!

    Seriously if he will do it I would like a plain black RX7-RR4.

    I was wondering if you could tell what store your friend is getting
    it from and the add.
    I only know of one bike store in HK and if I knew of more
    it may be more convenient

    Exactly. You can get them for cheap in HK, which is great. But to really take adavantage of having relatives there, you may aswell pick one up that isn't sold here. Then you'd never see anyone else with your helmet.

    Damn, too bad Arais aren't sold cheap in India, then I could take advantage of relatives too.

    They are snell approved, but not DOT. I guess the question is, will ICBC allow the use of them. I have a few myself, and I've only heard rumors that ICBC won't cover any damages, even thought snell is a higher rating than DOT is.

    thats really whacked.... i mean Snell M2000 is after all a much higher rating than that of DOT, so why wouldnt ICBC cover damages.

    i'm looking for a new lid too... if u can hook me up littlejim, u've got yourself a free dinner!
    i'm interested in the Haga replica for RX7-RR4...
    back on the saddle... at last!

    i can vouch for those prices.... i was in HK a couple of years ago and i bought my RX7-RR3 for about that price.... i:m in japan right now trying to find those same prices here but have had no such luck.... but they:re still cheaper than the ones in Van.

    the shop that i know of in HK is called '' HUNG HING '' in cantonese.... very nice people there.... that:s where i bought all my stuff.... i:m sure everyone would go GA GA for all the parts i:ve seen here.... i could spend DAYS in ONE shop....

    I'm heading to Japan and Hong Kong soon for vacation. I'll be in Tokyo and then Sapporo and finally Hong Kong. If I could get some information on where these 'cheaper' helmets and parts are sold (ie/ where Hung Hing is), I would like to go take a look for myself. Thanks.
