Nolan N104 Helmet + Sena SMH10R Bluetooth Install
The big brown truck dropped off a new Sena SMH10R that I mounted on my Nolan N104.
The only bad thing about the SMH10R is the short cable on the boom mic. The Nolan has a cutout for a boom mic on the right side, while the Sena assumes the mic will be on the same side as the control unit.
All of the velcro was backed with a good 3M adhesive. Once it touches, it's gonna stay, so be careful.
I have yet to test while riding (7 degrees outside), but walking around and making phone calls via bluetooth worked flawlessly and music sounded good and loud. I just wish there was more bass.
Some things I learned:
1) There is a specific order in which to remove/install the helmet padding.
2) The velcro they sent with it is backed with REALLY stick 3M adhesive
3) Take your visor off before working on it to prevent scratches.

It was fairly easy to install.
Remove all of the padding (cheek, neck roll).
To gain access to the battery storage area, remove the hex screw from the back and carefully lift off the plastic surround.
Place the (included with Sena) velcro in the battery box and press down. My fat fingers were able to fit in there to press down.
Due to cramped quarters, I couldn't get the battery in without catching on the velcro. Place one of the parts baggies in between, then remove it when battery is in position. I had to use a popsicle stick to press the battery down on the velcro.
The position of the boom mic
Speakers fit right in the pockets. No need for velcro as the fit was juuuust right.
Fitting the wiring. Blue painters tape was a valuable resource for holding things temporarily in place.
Due to the short boom mic wire, I had to move the control unit back a little. Still easy to get at though.
All wired up and ready to close up. Excess wire was looped around in battery box space.
Final position, clean install with no wires hanging about.
Now I just have to wait 2 more months to ride test it.

I just found this old post from a few months back. I'm thinking of getting the Sena SMH10 over the Scala Cardo G9, hope I'm making the right choice. Any update on how you like it Impster?
