Just get a new pinlock from your dealer, eBay or anywhere else. Throw out the old, put in the new and you are fine again. It'll probably be around $20. Cheaper than a new helmet. ;)

After trying a couple helmets this is my current one. Super light and good at highway speeds. Will it match my Seca once I have "bratted" it?? Probably not but that is A-OK.

Forgot to share that I bought myself an LS2 M436 Pioneer Trigger helmet a couple of weeks ago. I used to have an Airoh S4, but that was a bit too big to be snug on my head (yes, I know, I shouldn't have bought it then), and losing weight didn't help that situation.

Anyway, I bought the black trigger version. Lots of vents, tight feel and the sun visor doesn't tug too much on the wind. Well, not for me anyway. The built in sun visor works great and I like it. Keep in mind that, when I do long runs that take a couple of hours, I still use my HJC SY-MAXIII because that has less wind noise (I mean, you do have a visor and lots of vents on this LS2) and it has the bluetooth phone interface which allows me to call home to let them know when to expect me. ;)
