Chinguard Assembly:/

Fitting the chinguard takes time, care and patience. It's a 10 minute job, not a 2 minute job!

   
1. Ear pads should be removed before fitting the chinguard. Un-do both poppers and slide the ear pad out from between the helmet shell and liner. You can re-fit the ear pads afterwards, but the helmet is certified either way, so try the helmet before you re-fit them as you may prefer the extra space around your ear.

   
2. Next remove the self adhesive carbon-look stickers above the ear pad, on the outside of the helmet shell. These will not be used again so you can discard them. Removing the sticker reveals 2 mounting holes on each side of the helmet.

 
3. Fit one silver coloured round alloy nut into the rear of each of these holes, ie from the inside of the helmet shell, next to the helmet lining. You'll need to squeeze these nuts into the hole, they are tight and designed to self lock once fitted. This bit is quite a fiddle, and you may want to use the end of a flat bladed screwdriver or similar to press them home. If the hole is very tight and you cannot get the alloy nut to press home, use the following procedure:

• Without fitting the chinguard, hold the alloy nut flat against the hole as above, and enter a black Allen (hexagonal) head bolt from the outer side of the helmet. Being very careful not to cross thread the nut, slowly tighten the black Allen bolt with the Allen key spanner provided. Make sure you keep the nut and bolt perpendicular to the helmet. Gently tightening the bolt will draw the silver coloured alloy nut into the hole, and it will become captive. Keep a careful eye on the nut and bolt as you tighten, and don't screw too tight or too far, you only need to pull the nut far enough into the plastic to keep it there for now; full tightening will be achieved when you fit the chinguard. Once the silver coloured alloy nut is captive, carefully unscrew the black Allen bolt. Repeat this procedure on all four holes. You should end up with all four silver coloured round alloy nuts captive in the helmet shell.

 

4. Carefully fit the chinguard to the helmet, ensuring the webbing chin straps stay on the inside of the helmet.

   
5. Now re-fit the 4 black Allen bolts one by one, tightening them by finger to begin with, and again being very careful not to cross thread the nut. Then using the Allen key spanner tighten the bolts carefully, and NOT TOO TIGHT! You need them to be tight enough so as not to come undone, but not so tight that they start to press into the plastic of the chinguard.

   
6. You can now re-fit the ear pads if required, by sliding them carefully back between the helmet shell and liner. Make sure they are lined up correctly, and close the poppers on the webbing chin strap. You're finished!

   

Hope that all makes sense. If you have any questions or want any advice regarding fitting please contact us via email service(at)plusmax.de
