I did find after riding for about an hour that I seemed to be getting a bit of pressure on left hand cheek - so maybe need to keep an eye on this -

I have thought this through and had another brief test this morning. I now realise that when I ride I tend to have my jaws slightly relaxed - as a result the "swivel" bones near my ear push outwards  (try it yourself and maybe you experience the same). This makes my face width wider and this cause the pressure. When I clamp my jaws shut the pressure goes away. I think I didn't notice this with my Arai helmet because is a bit looser fit. I never knew I was riding with relaxed jaws  :008: - sounds a bit silly I know - but it is true.

Anybody who wants to post up an answer to the question "do you ride with jaws open or closed" - feel free to do so  :090:

It would seem like the helmet is probably slightly too tight, maybe it will disappear after loosening up a little bit.

As for the relaxed jaw, I heard that is a good indicator to check how tense you are on the bike. If you can stick the tongue through the teeth it's a good sign, otherwise you are probably going to fast for your ability :156:
