Schuberth C3 Pro liners?

I have a new C3 Pro that I made the mistake of buying a bit to small. Thanks to some fine members here informing me that the lids from XL to XXXL are all the same, just different liners, makes getting my helmet to fit right a lot easier. The problem now is I do not see anywhere that sells the liner to the C3 Pro, only the C3. I am waiting to hear back from Schuberth on this. Is the C3 the same liner? Or is the helmet just to new to have liners for sale?

The C3 liner is NOT the same as the C3 Pro liner. I "think" the C3 pro liner is similar to the S2 liner.

Hoping to hear back from schuberth soon on this, they are taking there sweet time in replying to my email. All I need is a different liner, but seems they are not out for sale anywhere.

Too bad this wasn't posted last Friday.. I went to the Morton's BMW Rally at Natural Bridge and the Schuberth reps were there with all their helmets and their large van with all parts, tools, accessories and knowledge. Demo helmets of all models and sizes were available. I took the C3Pro and S2 out on the interstate. Very good customer service from the guy and girl AND they weren't selling helmets. The dealership inside was though..

I finally got an email back from Schuberth, who were less then helpful. The reply in a nutshell was "this is not a warranty issue". I emailed back explaining I am just looking for an 2XL liner, now another week before they reply I guess.

Let me know what you find out. I have a Medium that is too small, I think if I could get a large liner to feel up a little room that would help with the hotspots on the front and back of my head.

Found a place to buy different size liners:

http://www.revzilla.com/motorcycle/s...3-helmet-liner

I bought a large, hopefully that turns this $760 migraine maker into a usable helmet.

From what I have read, go with the C3/S2 liner that they have listed instead.. Its $10 more but supposed to (help) take care of that hot spot issue.. The medium S2 liner might even help if its not major...
Revzilla claims they are great with returns, so can probably try one out and exchange if needed..

Wonderings, sorry to hear they weren't more helpful.. FYI, I did not get the helmet I was hoping to, so no liners here..

I originally tried to order from revzilla because of the return policy they have, but unfortunately they do not ship to Canada, so had to buy local and there is no returns. It is my fault for buying a helmet that does not fit well, not asking for a freebie or anything, but looking for a solution to turn my $800+ into a helmet that I can wear for a 7000km trip in mid June.

Hopefully will hear back with a price or some way of getting an 2XL liner right from schuberth soon, if not, I guess I just have to wait till they start selling them through stores.

I have contacted the store I bought the helmet from to see if they can order a different sized liner as they are a distributer for schuberth, so hopefully 1 of the 2 can help me out.

Had great customer service from Schubert, mine had to do with visor forming a haze.
My C3 fit tight in the hinge area so I laid the helmet on it side and placed a twenty pound bag of lead shot in the helmet on the liner, next day repeated process on other side, worked great

This is great...I have a new C3 coming from Revzilla (20% discount). Knowing that there is a cure for the forehead tight spot (if I need it) is a key piece of info!

That is the Pro liner. There is a link in a post above for the regular old C3 liner.

Thanks, going to give that a try. Of course I now need to wait for a custom quote for this liner because I am in Canada. I think I will probably be in the same boat with ordering C3 Pro from revzilla, which they do not ship to Canada for some reason. I have my fingers crossed as this seems to be the only option for me. My local dealer says all out of stock and nothing about when they are getting in and Schuberth has not gotten back to me yet.
