Hi. Anybody know where I could find this helmet for less then the $649.95 asked for at some dealers..? :-\

Looking to save a buck on a helmet I probably wont be using that much, so any help would be much appreciated... It's a 2007 Capirossi edition helmet called the Spec-1R Extreme from Suomy. Thanks in advance, Joe

I'd call (on the telephone) www.helmetharbor.com and www.helmetshop.com and ask. Prices on the websites are not as low as they'll quote over the phone. I couldn't find the exact pics on the website either, but doesn't mean they can't get it for a great deal. I buy all my helmets from these 2 sites.

Don't be cheap, give your local dealer the business. I don't care if it's me, Munroe, or anyone else for that matter, Support local business. It's only 30 bucks. How much is the shipping from ebay? How much will you ACTUALLY save? ???

May I ask which store you represent punkass? haha sounds like I'm calling you out.. lol...

Side note- I purchase everything locally... even though I've moved to somewhat SoCal I still plan on making my purchases through the interweb so the places I like are still there when I move back :)

at the same price? $11.44 shipping vs $51 in tax.

I with you. If the price is reasonably close, I always try to buy local, even if its $20-40 more. I've found that on most stuff I can usually get an almost equivalent price from a local shop these days.

i agree... it's worth the hassle to deal local if they can get close on price.

one of my issues, especially in the case of these helmets, is that you can find the extremes online for $450-600. rarely will you find a b&m store that will discount much off full msrp.

so, now you have an internet sellers (often an out of state dealer) selling a helmet for $500+shipping (average) against a local dealer selling it for $650+tax.

~$512 vs ~$703

for a $200 savings, i'm buying online.
