how to reattach some rubber to helmet?

So a piece of rubber on my helmet came off, how do i reattach it, what would be the best adhesive so as not to damage the helmet with fumes or anything.



Here is the piece that has come off.

Is this the helmet you just posted about finding a style you like? If it is don't mess with it at all take it back.

gorilla glue is intense. But it also expands, use a real real thin layer. as it dries so don't use very much. But it should work. Good luck

Used helmets are a VERY risky move.

Use 3M two sided tape. The kind that holds ****ing shelves on the wall. I used that to reattach my Visor gasket and it still holding up 6 months later. Git R Done!

I would use Gorilla Glue, but as was said be careful. It expands and foams so be very conservative with the application. Anything that expands you can shave with a razor blade.

this helmet seems to have much better fit/finish than all the other helmets i've tried on under $300. its Snell approved too. if it was good enough for the best riders a few years ago, its good for me goin 45 around my neighborhood.
