Title: sytem 7 helmet and new coms unit
Post by: steve.med on 2018-03-07 19:48:16
hi just got a new system 7 crash helmet
I got the new coms from another  dealer that have just received stock
this post is about fitting the coms
as you know bmw helmets were made by schuberth for bmw not the 7 it seams
the problem is the screws used in the 7 are crap you will have a problem reusing them again
if you do get a coms get bmw to fit it and point out about the screws
so so small heads on them  >:(
not happy as I have just spent £800.00 I would want a better quality
by the way have a system 6 with coms that I got in June last year
that I will be listing on eBay size 60/61

hi just a update on the new system 7 helmet
had a chances to use it yesterday
and what a let down I got about 40miles and had to stop
I might had been better riding with two ice cubes on my face
with the chin guard down the wind cuts pass the sides
its not up to the hype looks fab but and its a big but its not well put together
my system 6 wins over
if any one has one yet can you let me know
on the only plus side the coms unit is excellent 
I have contacted bmw customer service to day to complain
after £850.00 I expect better    >:( :( :'(

Hi Steve
When I bought my gt a few weeks back, I also ordered the systems 7 helmet with the comms unit.
I was really disappointed with both the wind noise and the build quality of the comms unit. (I have never seen such cheaply made speakers in my life). I was fortunate enough that the dealer allowed me to return it. I have since bought the schuberth C4 with the sc1 advance comms unit.
Although I cannot compare it to other helmets (like the neo tech 2 cause I have not tried it) it is miles ahead of the bmw helmet.

I have been told from bmw that my system 7 is faulty and it is being replaced
the gap on the side between the chin guard is to large
ZUNAID did you get the sc1 comes to work ok on your bike and can you use the thum wheel ok ?
