Does it still take 10 minutes and 3 wrenches to change the shield?

Yes, but the wrenches are proprietary and not included. You can purchase the tool set for $1995.00.

The review is for a different Corsair V model...not the Carbon.  "This review is from Arai Corsair V Helmet - Solid." etc.  The Carbons are still just pre-order.  

When I win the lottery, can I have them develop a carbon fiber pair of pants, jacket, gloves, and boots...for a 6'1" 275 guy?  That should only cost me about $75k.

Quite a few mfgs make an all CF helmet.

What is special about Arai's for them to charge 4 to 8 times as much as other CF helmets?

That's a nice helmet. I would buy one.

For about 800 bucks that is.

But they don't.
 A Sportster 883 is cheaper than the Honda Shadow 750.
And better too:

Dynas are also very competitively priced.
