3xl DS helmet on a budget???

So right now I have a HJC CS-12 full face helmet that I bought for snowmobiling. It keeps my head nice and warm no matter what.

35 deg (F) 65 mph with 15 mph head wind....
110 deg barely moving through town. Kinda hot

So right now I am looking for a new summertime helmet but my head is too freaking big.

What I like is the fly trekker, or afx-41 (design wise) neither of which come in a 3xl

My budget is less than $200.

So far what I have tried on is

of course my hjc cs-12 3xl, fits great

fly trekker (i dunno model and neither did the shop) 2xl, a tad small, doesnt want to slide on or off

and something at cabelas in a 1xl (~$80) didnt think it was gonna come off.

Does anyone else have any other ideas?

RevZilla has about 50 different helmets in a 3x and less than $200. Maybe check the specs there and then try to find one locally to try on for fit ?

A 7-5/8 Long Oval might fit my head, but . . . hard to find the motorcycle equivalent!

Arai Signet models come in long oval profile, but . . . we've gone beyond $ 100 several times!

A Fly XXL fit well without alteration.

An AFX-39 XXL remains wearable.

Professional rider, closed course, DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME, but . . . in the past, Mr. Moto Tool has "customized" some helmets for me.

Well it took another hour of research to find out my local bike shop can get me an afx 39... Why they didn't say that before when I spent an hour in there talking to them about DS helmets in a 3xl.... IDK. I dont have much faith in this place.

Anyhow I will have to see how it fits. I really wanted the AFX-41 because it looks so aggressive, but they only make it in up to a 2xl... Oh well
