Its not totally your helmets fault guys.
Indian Helmets did look really cheesey to me but its the pressure points of your head which is causing the discomfort.
It would appear your head is more round than the helmets shape causing you grief.
Dont know what shape the lid was but an example is your head= medium round.
Indian Helmet= oval.
I would be willing to bet front and back areas were so tight and the sides you could probably put a finger or two in there.
This type of matchup would cause that " on fire" feeling.

Always had problems. Finding a helmet that fits correctly. The best one I ever found. Is the Bell Custom 500 An actual picture of me.

One way to get further information of your head shape is put on a thin stocking or similar tightness so your skull shape shows and sit down somewhere and have someone take a snapshot of your top of noggin.

I have had just the opposite experience with the Indian branded half helmet I bought. It has a knob in the back so I could get just the perfect fit and the visor keeps me from getting the sunglass / helmet headache. When it’s dusk I can adjust the helmet with a 1/4 turn and my clear safety glasses are no issue. I think helmets are as subjective as aftermarket seats. Ultimate, Corbin, Mustang. A persons build may find one more comfortable than the other. Sorry to hear you have had a bad experience.

Helmets, handlebars, boots, and seats...you’ll never make one that fits everyone. I have a Voss half helmet that works for me.
