Thanks every one for the good ideas -doubt if I could have found another helmet that would have fit.

If you cant locate one, how about using velcro? A strip of the hook tape on either side of the goggle strap with a wider strip of the loop tape over the top to hold it in place. You'd never have to worry about losing them as there is some very tenacious velcro out there.
Good idea. For a clean look could stick a patch under the strap and sew a corressponding one to the underside of the goggle strap.

Called the retailer and it was supposed to have one. Picked it up today -I think they take the bag o' parts out to keep them from walking away. Really flimsy though, if it breaks will probably go the velcro route.

Never saw it before, thanks. I did notice that with the new googles he got that they had the 'silicone like' backing, and when you lift them up onto the helmet brow the straps make quite the dogleg on the sides. Clip probably a good option for the non 'silicone' backed straps.
