The newer Quantums do have removable liners (thank goodness), but older lids in the series didn't. My old Quantum e did not have a removable liner; my new (last year) Edwards Rep does.

Tell your buddy to call Arai or... just give her a tug! :D

The check pads are removable in the quantum, or at least mine were...I have had really really good luck with Robert at the arai service pavilion too...he has been awsome to deal with...

And as for chain...I too have the Flaming chicken arai, and of course my next lid will be the black/silver edwards rep, Nice choice :thumb:

I'm pretty sure the whole liner doesn't come out. Quantum F? What year was that one made? I've lost track of which year corresponds to which letter after Quantum. Just wondering, because if it's over 5 years old, it's not worth it no matter what the price.

Check the buckle side of the chin strap, it should be stamped on the back of it there...

Yeah, good thing to check. If you're planning on doing a track day, all the organizations that I know of require a helmet 5 years old or newer. No matter how good it looks, after 5 years the protective styrofoam starts drying out and breaking down.

I just got a new Quantum II, which replaces the Quantum/f. The QII is the first Quantum with removable liner. The Q/e and Q/f have removable cheekpads, but that's it. I can't believe their website still hasn't been updated with 2005 stuff yet.

If you have a friend in the carpet cleaning biz just have them use the hand attachment and steam clean that puppy. Did that to my old Quantum/e and it was like new (inside). They also have anti-bacterial stuff they can add to the cleaning mix. Just a thought. But obviously a new or newer helmet would be your best bet. I just like to have a spare/backup helmet just in case the Mrs. wants to go for a ride (rare).

If the entire liner doesn't come out, just take it in the shower with a little shampoo. Make sure to rinse many times and dry it as much as you can with a towel and do not use a heater, let it air dry. If it's hot enough, just ride with it damp, keeps you cool. Motorex makes a helmet cleaner that seems to work pretty good.

I never wash the inside of my helmets. When they get nasty I just buy a new one. I am the Chain of helmets.

Grab a big bucket and throw some detergent in there. Submerge helmet and let it soak for a while.

The use a hose and keep hosing the inside down until foam no longer appears from liner, leave it outside for a day or so face up to the sun.

Voila, you've just washed your lining.

Winter is a great time to wash your helmet!

Did mine a few months ago.
