Shoei XR1000 accessories

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' at netrider.net.au started by AFX, Aug 23, 2006.

  1. Would anyone happen to know if the Shoei XR1000 helmet is supposed to come with the breath guard and chin curtain accessories?

    I am referring to the model sold here in Australia.

    I have read on some sites that these accessories were bundled with the RF1000 (I think this is the XR1000 equivalent in the US).

    Thanks for your help! :)

  2. I know for a fact that they were not with mine when I got it 6 weeks ago... also for some reason they forgot to include the smoke visor... :)

    With winter nearly over I don't think you really need the breath guard any more... although not perfect, it doesn't smog up to badly... just keep the vents open and the speed above 80 !

  3. same I didn't get squat, but I didn't know any better should have asked for them. got the lid, clear visor and a cloth bag. $615 was a good price though.

  5. Thanks for the replies everyone!

    It may have been bundled with the US version. I remember some people complained about it when they ordered the breath guard / chin curtain and they were already included with the helmet.

    The only accessory I actually need is the chrome visor for the XR1000, though I've read they're prone to scratches.

    I just have to find a place that sells one for less than $100.

  7. If you want a breathguard for your shoei, buy the Nitro one, they're a quarter of the price and fit better than the genuine shoei one does.

    The x11 comes with a chin guard

  8. The only accessory I need for the helmet is a chrome tinted visor - preferably under $100.

    I still need to get the rest of my gear so Bikemart looks like a good option, thanks Grunge!

  9. Dang, You should have told me that before I bought mine!! Ugh... Maybe I need to take a look at it anyways.. the shoei one I have..... isn't that good.. I think I want one that's more plastic than foamy.

  12. Yeah I thought about buying a chin guard but i neckwarmer does the job just as well.

    Only thing im looking for a the moment is thicker cheek pads. When i bought my helmet last year i had long boofy hair, now thats gone its a little loose now. They are not cheap either!

  14. Would anyone know where the Nitro breathguard is available in VIC or online? Has anyone tried this on the XR-1000 lid?

  15. Most bike shops who ever stocked the nitro helmets will have them :)

    Just ring up your local dealer and ask :)

    And 100% positive they fit, sold a few of them :)

  16. my xr1000 did not come with these accessories. They are optional, bought a dark tinted visor for about 50 bucks and a shoei breath guard for about 25 bucks. The iridium visor your talking are a bit dearer and I've also heard that these types of visors are a lot more prone to scratching.
