Bauer Hybrid Shield too wide for Bauer IMS 9.0

Recommended Posts

As the title states, the Bauer Hybrid Shield I bought is too wide for my IMS 9.0 helmet. Here's the thing, the helmet is a size medium, and I bought both the medium and large hybrid shields to try on the helmet, and both ended up being too wide for the J clips. I was trying to make some modifications to the clips to make them stick out a bit more by using washers, but it is still an issue because when I do get the helmet into the J clips, it stretches the width of the helmet, making it too wide for my head. I was wondering if it would be possible to bend the cage permanently which would also bend the shield a little, considering that is how I get them into the J clips anyway. Would this damage the shield or force it to crack over time? I need to make up about a half inch in order for it to fit. I would use the shield without the J clips, but it just doesn't feel secure. The shield is a size large, but like I stated, the medium size didn't make a difference, so I went with the bigger size because it fit me better. Any suggestions?

WOOOOOWWW!!

3 year thread bump TO THE DATE! Not even lying, I am having this exact problem but with the Tron S920 & a Warrior PX2 helmet.

How did you resolve this? I was thinking about trying washers too. 

CRAZY coincidence LOL!!
