I have a 2008 GL1800 and am having a problem with my J & M headset. I broke off one of the pins in the helmet connection and can't get the pin out of my headset. Any ideas on how to remove the pin from my headset?

Tweezers or jeweler's needle nose pliers?

Well I discovered a new use for duct tape. The pin was broke off flush in the headset,
so I couldn't pull it out with tweezers. I cut a narrow piece of duct tape, stuck it in the headset connection, the pin stuck to the duct tape enough to pop it out of the hole.
Then I pulled it out with the tweezers. Thanks for your input.

That's good news. Another reason every toolbox should have a roll.

For what it's worth I had the same thing happen about a month ago. I took it to a jeweler that I know and does repairs. I took them about five minutes but they got it out. Also I found that every so often the conection from the helmet to the patch cord would come loose. I took a little electrical tape around the boom and two little lock ties and attached the cord to the boom to take the stress off of the conection.

In desert racing we have a saying, "if you can't fix it with duct tape it's broke" so sounds like its not broke.
