My first Helmet

New the forums here and thought i'd throw this out. I'm planning to get my
M2 license in August. I bought my first helmet. Its a Kimpex CKX RR800, got a good deal on it, so I went that route as oppose to used as all my friends suggested. Anyhow is there any thing I should do before hand?? I've had it on couple of times in the house scaring the kids with, it fits nice, I found I had to rotate it on my head to get the "folded ears" feeling to go away, or get my ears to settle in. It is snug, no added pressure when its on with my glasses on, just a little tight getting on and off. Do they work in after a while? I've measure my head a million times in the mirror and get 23". The Helmet is a large and is measured at 23" to 23 7/8" by the manufacturer. Another question I had was is there any alternative to the pain in the a$$ strap? is there an easy replacement out there? Thanks in advance.
