    Largest Helmet Available

    Hello, I'm new here to the forum as I just bought my first bike in over 25 years. It's a 2001 K1200LTI. I haven't ridden the bike yet as I haven't found a helmet that will fit me. I tried a AFX FX-Magnus in 3XL and a HJC IS-MAX in 3XL with no luck. Just ordered a HJC CL-MAX in 5XL that should be delivered on Monday. I sure hope it fits because I'm running out of options.

    Does anyone know where I can find a very large helmet?

    Thanks - any help would be appreciated.

    Probably its your head 'shape'. I had the same problem....jumbo size in the inexpensive helmets wouldnt even come close.

    Decided to spend the coin and went to a dealer that sold Arai. Got an Arai Signet (long oval) and an XL fit like a hat! Most comfortable helmet I have ever wore, because it fits! $500 bucks worth of all day comfort.

    measure you head with a tape ... you might not be a 5x
    by tape I'm between size L/XL, but due to head shape
    it took size XXXL to fit my head until I finally found a motorcycle shop that knew how to fit a helmet. they told me NO way XXXL was correct for my head. way too loose where it count. too tight in spots, causing pain.

    ended up with a size XL Bell which fits excellent without pain

    I've heard that Bell makes some big helmets.

    Speaking of helmets, and don't ask me how I got to this, but it is fun:
