I'll probably be modifying all my helmets from now on. I got a Limar Chrono (universal size) last year and melted the styrofoam (propane stove and old spoon) to get it to fit right... also removed the plastic adjuster which was just in the way. Now I can tilt it back so the tail doesn't stick up and it fits great... and is fairly small compared to the alternatives. I tried a LG Rocket and Giro Advantage but in size L they are just huge... plus the LG had a gap at the sides. In M these were two were way too small but if I'd tried melting them they probably would have worked.
