Is it a DIY kit? Or would you need to take it someone to fix?

I'm presuming that it is a single piece of plastic, and would require just about fixing of nuts and bolts which i can do myself.

Yes, it is one piece and you'll definitely do it yourself. I have seen one fitted in front of me in Pune.

The windscreen is almost sorted, have someone coming down from Ohio early next month, and she would mostly hand carry it for me. Just hope it gets to me in one piece.

Oh no, in fact, I got it in '05 and I had worn it for that first ride of the season with you. Below is my latest helmet that I got 2 months back.

Didn't like the HJC much.
But, there is an awesome KBC gunshot helmet going really cheap (90 odd usd) on bikebandit, too bad they do not have a size for me.

I got this one($80)because the AGV is getting old now. My next one will be a Shoei or another Rossi replica if I can get a good deal.

I hope I can upgrade the bike instead of making this one a replica .

Thanks, that is the top-of-the-line HJC. I wanted something with fully removable interiors.

This is the one I was talking about. Awesome. Below is the 929 colors that I think you're talking about.

This is one Kawasaki that I wouldn't mind buying even though the front end is ugly. Its more comfortable than a Busa. I think this color scheme is only for '08. By the way I got that HJC because I intend to install the HJC Chatterbox in it later. The other helmets that you can install it are the ICON'S but there was no deal on those.

Somehow I've always liked the 929 more than the 954.
