Sena SHM10/Schuberth C3 install

The Sena SMH10 went on my HJC helmet ok, but the schuberth c3 install is challenging because the sun visor slider is right where the Sena should go, so the mic can't reach where it should and it also makes the sun visor slider tough to operate. anyone have tips/pics on this install? also tough routing the wires around the lip of the helmet and getting the unit's clamp slid between the liner and shell!

Don't they have a unit that you can attach anywhere on the helmet (Sticky) With leads on the mic and headphones that are longer ?

You need to purchase the SMH-A0302 clamp kit. When you install the speakers, remove the cheek pad on the left side and route the wire under it. Run the wire for the right side inside the helmet under the lining and use the right cheek pad to hide some of the wiring.

Does the Clamp kit require adhesive to secure the unit, or does the clamp itself hold the unit and then the longer mic cord allows you to move the clamp further towards the back of the helmet and not in the chin closure way.

I used the adhesive mount and not the clamp for our helmets. I also used a prep/primer that I bought at an auto refinishing store made by 3M. I used an alcohol swab to clean the side of the helmet. I then located where I wanted the Sena unit to sit behind the visor slide bar and traced the outline of the adhesive mounting bracket in pencil. I applied the primer as per instructions that came with the primer (you can google it download the instructions from 3M also). Next peal the adhesive tape cover and firmly squeeze/hold the mounting plate onto the side of the helmet for about one minute. Within ten minutes it is firmly bonded to the side of the helmet and will not come off (a common complaint of some users on other forums).

Using the adhesive mounting plate is essential for the Schuberth helmet and especially the new Pro version with the integrated antenna for the Schuberth BT collar. The bottom of the helmet is not thin enough for the metal clamp to fit properly. YMMV

+1 that's what I did for my C3 while Kathy's Nolan just took the standard Sena setup.

Thank you.
I do not quite get the velcro speaker components. The velcro with the tape on the back does not stick to the back of the speaker.

Re: Sena SHM10/Schuberth C3 install

Since I had to use adhesive to hold the clamp kit, how do I remove it if I want to upgrade from the SMH10 to the SMH20 without damaging the helmet?
Has anyone done this?
