Did you have to remove the chin cold weather guard from the front of the helmet or does it slide freely over the mic when you open/close the lid?
+1 on the thanks for posting the photos. Looks like you used the clamp on the mount, right? Not the adhesive backed plate.
Looks good. I'll be ordering yet another mount I guess. Two Senas, 4 helmets, 2 heads. I'm very lucky that my wife's head is so similar to mine. We each have a primary helmet, I have a dual sport, and now my old Nolan if she wants to wear a modular instead of her Qwest.

I used the adhesive mount from the Sena on my Neotec helmet with no issues so far. It has been on several 500 mile rides so far. I use the same Sena unit for either my Arai Vector or the Shoei. The gap was very tight between the shell and liner on the Neotec so I chose the adhesive mount. I didn't want to mess up the fit. The extra mount purchased included the clamp and adhesive system. The key is to use rubbing alcohol on the finish where the adhesive goes to remove any oils or wax. After that let the adhesive cure before riding. I let my helmet cure for 24 hours.
The mounting location for my installation is the same as Zoom shows. The standard mic reaches and access for the solar shield slider is good. No problem with the mic with the chin curtain. All one has to do is reach past the curtain after the chin bar is closed to get optimal positioning.

I had a Nolan and it kept sliding down on my face after a few hundred miles pressing on my sun glasses so I tried the Shoei and never looked back. It's lighter and just fits my head better. I like it!

I completed the install of the Sena SMH10 on my Shoei Neotec. I decided to use the metal backplate. I was successful finding a location to slip the backplate into the helment without any issues. I am installing the headset with the detachable mic. I installed the mic under the left check pad and it fits perfect. Needs a little bending to get around the check pad snaps. I paired up a bluetooth transmitter from my ipod and paired up just the phone with my iphone 4s. Incoming calls ring in my headset and silence the music from my ipod. I can make and receive calls.
Everything works great inside the house but the next test will be on the bike. I will post an update of my experience.
I used to wear Shoei helmets. Headaches and a big red dot on my forehead. Is there any improvement on this issue with the Multitec. Wear the long oval Arai now but would like a flip front.
