How To Stop Your Shoei Helmet's Whistling ProblemPosted on: 2010-03-03 07:59:49
I finally replaced a ZAMP helmet that I had received when purchasing my old bike with a <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002XNP9WG?ie=UTF8&tag=nickvaha-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B002XNP9WG">Shoei RF 1100 Firestrike<img src="http://www.assoc-amazon.com/e/ir?t=nickvaha-20&l=as2&o=1&a=B002XNP9WG" width="1" height="1" border="0" alt="" style="border:none !important; margin:0px !important;" />.
This is a great helmet. The only problem was that it whistled at 60+ mph. Turns out that all you have to do is make a couple of adjustments to make it stop.

- Push against these clips on both sides to remove the face shield.
- Loosen (do not remove!) these screws. About a half-turn is all you need.
- Push the whole shield assembly towards the back of the helmet.
- Hold the assembly and tighten the screws in step 2.
That's it! The shield should be held against the gasket properly and there should be no more whistling.
