690 Enduro R Rally Replica - Arai TX4 peak vibration
« on: February 03, 2015, 04:37:56 pm »
Would like some advice please..  Got a 690 Enduro R recently and went for the Arai TX-4 helmet.  I read up on the helmet and most owners love them but I've also heard the stories about the vibrating peak.. and yes, it's happening to me as well sometimes at speed..  I know this is not a helmet issue, but the effect is caused by wind turbulence coming over the windscreen.  I have a Rally replica.   Any advice on how to get around this problem?

Hello Herman, first off, welcome to the foru, chap. :thumleft:
I have a Arai TX3, my 3rd one. They do vibrate, depending on the screen you have and the type of riding conditions, that said I found it to be far better than most, with the exception of the helmets with the short peaks like the Nolan.
Just because your past did not turn out like you wanted it to does not mean your marriage will not be better than you ever imagined it could be.

I have the same. Arai is worse on all the KTMs that I had. My MX helmet and Nolan DS helmet are fine on the KTMs but vibrated on my BMWs but the Arai was fine on the BMs. Go figure. Try playing around with the peak angle
