  • Anyone have Bourke's laying around?

    I need a measurement from center to center of the mounting holes. Its finally time to to replace the drooping Bourke's on my american heritage helmet, I would like to try the high temp ones however according to the fire store lion helmets have their own bourkes . I did not see a listing for the tempered ones that are made for lion and was curious to see how much a difference there is between the standard Bourke's and the lion's as far as mounting is concerned. Any help would be appreciated

    Curiosity has got the better of me now, regardless of how I fix my lid.. I'm still gonna be left with a wtf is the difference question ?! I must know (plus the lion's cost more )

      I have had many helmets over the years with Bourkes and while they look cool, especially when you burn and melt them and they curl, in my humble opinion they are mostly worthless and offer little protection .
      Crazy, but that's how it goes
      Millions of people living as foes
      Maybe it's not too late
      To learn how to love, and forget how to hate

        Yep they're mostly just for looks, but def only for looks when they're melted and won't fold properly. Fortunately, a scba mask is good for eye protection and when not in scba a quality set of safety glasses will do.

        All the guys are going to the defender, seems to provide better eye protection but they just look fragile to me! At least melted and broke bourkes provide a little more water drain off the front.

          years ago guys opened up a 2-1/2" on a straight stream blew a ceramic coffee mug of the window ledge hit me square in the flip down , spun me a half turn , broke the shield --I was outside protecting a propane tank. At the least it would have broken my nose, maybe my jaw
          ?

            Absolutely!! I think a standard faceshield is much better, and I can easily throw on some good safety glasses on underneath as well.
