I wouldn't shift pass 6k since the torque seems to drop off dramatically after about 5500rpm. I could've shifted closer to 6k, but I've been short shifting for the last few track days to prevent overheating.

Have you tried looking around? There's got to be one in XL size or something. Try Sube Sports in Huntington Beach. They have helmets for test fitment.

BTW, when are you planning on going to Buttonwillow?
