    Default Scorpion EXO-900 & headsets

    I have a J&M headset for my 700 as it doesn't use a boom mic but no headset for the 900 I just bought today. What do you have for your EXO900?

    JM headsets work well with the EXO900. I simply un snapped the little chin skirt and run the boom up from the front.

    I have the EXO 900 and used a standard J&M boom mic headset from my previous ARAI. Works fine. I did have to make a slight mod to run the boom mic. I'll try to take a pic and post it later this weekend. It works both with and without the full-face, which I take off for summer.

    Which J&M headset series did you go with? likes/dislikes?

    I emailed J&M because I like the installation they did in their picture. Very clean. For the price I might as well figure something else out like what you guys did (whatever that might be) or return the helmet to the dealer and buy the helmet and the headset preinstalled from J&M.

    For me to go w/ how they installed I would have to have the helmet shipped at my cost round trip. For the Elite series including their labor installation charge it would be $290. For the Performance series including their labor installation charge it would be $240. Either way that is more than what I paid for the helmet. On top of that I would still have to buy the lower cord seperately. I told them I already have a 1 piece cord and they said with it being custom installed the 1 piece won't work with it.

    That equals 1 expensive helmet.

    Sounds like you got more of a response from J&M than I did,,, I just bought two GMAX 54s helmets from Cycle Giant. I emailed J&M asking which model # of the Performance Series they recommended for those helmets... The reply was "We're not familiar with that helmet, can't help you".
    So, guess I'll have to find someone with that type of helmet and see what their using.

    I think with J&M headsets they are more or less universal. The difference is the lower cord. It looks like some are helmet specific or generic according to the type of helmet (full face, quarter or half).

    Could you send another email and just let them know what bike you have and that you have a full face helmet, modular, quarter, half, etc...(w/out letting them know the helmet model)?

    I installed a J & M 584 headset in my wife's EXO900 and it works great.

    I removed the left cheek pad and installed the boom mic then modified the pad to allow for the mic. It wasn't hard at all.

    You do have to open/shut the helmet jaw as the flap that reduces the air flow into the helmet around the chin will catch the boom on the mic.

    Yep. That will work! It's part of the Performance Series at J&M. I have friends that use them but I prefer the higher quality of the Elite Series
