RJRJRJ I have a Ride Ninja and had a similar problem. The first thing I did was take out the headset. Those things hurt my ears so badly. I just use my regular earbuds underneath the earflaps now. Also, I pulled the foam out of the earflaps and cut it with some scissors to contour the pressure points. It fits perfectly now.

Sick-Pow I tried a few helmets before i found one that fit my dome ( and Ears) correctly. Same maker (Smith) same Size, different models fit vastly different.

try riding with a face mask on or removing some of the foam to ease up the pressure.

I had the same issue with my helmet and after a few weeks i stopped noticing it. i found wearing a full face mask really helped. alternatively you can try a larger size helmet.

Rider161 I ride with mine on and I never had my ears hurt.. maybe the strap was to tight causing undo stress on your ears?
