Looking for recommendations on headsets for my new ride. Just purchased the fast one (Red) SVTC. I wear a half helmet and my passenger switches between a half and full face. Nothing fancy just so I can talk with her. I am having the BAM Sticks with Zombie baffles installed so I am guessing I will need a good set to hear above the motor.

Thanks

Hey, Jim, Iím afraid Iíve got no advice for you on a comm system, but Iím curious about your plans for the BAM sticks. You just slapping Ďem on, or you going with an aftermarket tuner?

I don’t have any input on the headset but I am interested on the BAM sticks as well.

Sam on the BAM sticks here! I kinda like the sound of the 1.75. They bark when you roll on the throttle otherwise they’re about as quiet as stock.

I bought the J&M (the series Yamaha uses, I think it is the 800 series) for my half helmet and it works really well. Also bought the set from J&M for a three quarter but I am struggling to find a three quarter helmet that fits my head :-) with a inner liner shell that is thick enough to accommodate the wider ear pieces.

Had the dealer get the tuner as part of the package. Once I get them installed I will post an update.

Give the new Scorpion helmets a look.
I just bought 3/4 one. Great air flow, drop down recessed sunshield, removable washable liner. Very reasonable at around $150.

I use an IMC headset with a 3/4 HJC 33 and a modular Speed and Strength 1310. Works great in both. My wife has a Hawk full face and also works. It's hard to get good pictures but hopefully you can see it fits.
