steve, do you mean the RF1000 or the x-11? The RF1000 doesn't come out. I have one of those.

The cheek pads should come out. Wash them in the washing machine with Woolite. As for the rest of the helmet, fill a 5 gal bucket with water and put woolite in it. Remove the visor. Literally dunk the helmet in it and start scrubbing away with your hands on the liner. You can't hurt anything by submerging it. Scrub it for about 5 minutes then take it out and rinse it with the hose really well. Then try to press some of the excess water out of the liner as best you can, then let it sit in front of a fan for a day.

Nice clean helmet. Oh, you might want to wash your ass, too. :lol

After a season of riding in HOT HOT weather, my helmet is smelling like ass. How do I clean it? I have a Shoei RF1100.
I fill the bathtub up with warm water and throw in some laundry detergent and then submerge the entire helmet. I use Tide. Let it soak awhile. Rub it down with your hands. Let it soak awhile longer. Rinse with clean water. Let it air dry. I put it on top of the clothes dryer and let it get warm while I'm tumbling clothes in the dryer. It hasn't had any adverse affect on my Arai Quantum IVf. It gets it smelling so nice and clean that I wear the helmet around the house while dusting the furniture and vacuuming the floors. For fun after washing it, wear it with the dark smoke tint visor, strip naked, jump in the tub, and suprise your lover.
