    If I could justify spending a ton of cash on a new helmet have have another Arai again in a second. I still have my early 90s Signet Mick Doohan replica but the liner has broken down. Never get rid of it and it would be nice to get a new liner in it if it would still be considered safe even though it's 25 years old!
    No they say too not where them after 5 years. I've heard that in NY they actually check and it's over 5 years old they will fine you. No helmet laws in Pa. So they check a lot of people going across the state line.

    Is there a way to tell how old a helmet is, serial number or something of the like?

    Usually there is a sticker inside under the inner pad. That sticker tells you the date it was inspected.

    Take out the cheek pads and the upper pad and you should see it.

    Its total BS..There is no law that states a helmet has to be newer than 5 years old..the 5 year figure was put out by the helmet manufacturer's as a general rule to replace helmets that are 5 years old or older. . Its good practice but its certainly not law and certainly not something cops can fine you for.

    I just read up on NY helmet laws and did not see any such thing in the code. Maybe there should be.
