- Make sure you are comfortable with your mouthpiece. There are good and bad ones. Find the one that suits you most.
- Even with allowing the mouthpiece to cool, it still will be quite warm, especially for people with sensitive mouths.
- If the mouthpiece does not have a strap what connects to the helmet there is a chance of choking on the mouthpiece.
