I was going to replace the interior liner and ear pads on my helmet and was told that if the helmet was older than five years I need to replace the helmet. I can get all the pads for $40.00, a comparable helmet is $200.00. I have been riding for over 40 years and have never heard this before. Is it the manufacture trying to sucker me into a new helmet? By the way my helmet is only six years old and I really like it. Just curious what other peoples opinions are.
