So when I am riding a sport bike I have 2 jackets which both are pressing up on the helmet so that I have difficulties looking up. Worst when I am tugged. I found the if I put on my old Shoei which does not have the big lump on the back for the intercom, then it is much better.
See pictures

I simply need another helmet/jacket or is there a fix ?

It helps if I take out the back protector. On of the jackets also creates a hole down my neck when I am wearing the built in back protector. It catches the wind. So annoying.

First, not enough info. Which jacket mfr(s) & which jacket model(s)? How does the jacket fit you, ie is it loose or snugger fit? pix of you w/ gear & on bike in tuck position would help but not sure we can offer a viable solution- tbd

Manufacturer of the jackets? Speed & Strength maybe? I've bought an Alpinestars jacket exactly for this reason.
