Do the quick disconnects like they were done yesterday. Honest. If one of the plastic QD's fail, you could literally lose the bike (think lots of gas on a hot engine or hot exhaust pipe). If you're lucky, it'll "only" be a slow leak, but any gas leak is a hazard. I know this sounds like a lot of alarmist BS, but the risk really is there, and the fix is relatively easy.
What other mods are you considering?
FWIW, I have a Nolan 103 modular helmet. It has decent air flow in hot weather. I can't think of a modular helmet that's as quiet as a non-modular helmet, though. I use the Nolan for short, local hops where I'm in and out of the helmet a lot. For longer rides, I wear a Schuberth S-1. Spendy but safe.
Not all who wander are lost. Which still leaves room for more than a few lost wanderers...
