I have an old helmet, and the padding is completly worn out, some of the pads have fallen off, is there any way I can replace them? are there any kits?
They say that helmets should be replaced every few years because the styrofoam degrades. If yours is really that old, you might consider just getting a new one. They don't have to be expensive if you buy something unstylish on closeout.

So much for the environment and recycling etc. , but I would rather have a new lower priced helmet than an old higher priced one for the reason Iws mentions.
In the motorcycling world, the word is five years tops. Less if you live in high uv areas in the south.
Nearly everyone's head is worth the price of the cheapest helmets. Get yourself a new lid. There's no savings to be had in an old helmet. And if the pads are gone, so is the correct fit.
