Installation of BMW Motorrad Communication System

Trying to get some assistance in the installation of a BMW Motorrad Communication System in a new Schuberth C3 helmet.

After find some instructions on the Internet after finding nothing in the BMW package, I've removed the helmet liners but found that the cavity where you're supposed to insert the battery package is a bit too small, causing the helmet's inner shock absorbing material to bulge inward.

Is this normal??

Have to say I'm a bit irritated since the dealer won’t install this, even though I just dropped over a grand on the comm system and the C3 helmet.
Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Re: Installation of BMW Motorrad Communication System

Try contacting the folks at Sierra Electronics in Troy, Ohio. All they do is motorcycle audio systems, including helmet installations. I can't say if they know how to install the BMW helmet comm system that you have, but they have been trained/certified on the J&M helmet installation on the Schuberth helmets. So, that's a start... good luck.

Re: Installation of BMW Motorrad Communication System

After sending out several postings and emails for assistance, I was contacted by a tech rep at Schuberth who offered to install everything if I shipped it to him. It was worth it to get it done right, and to know I didn't violate the integrity (and warranty) of the helmet!
