night time riding problems.

hi all 

has anyone ever had problems using an anti mist pinlock clear visor in the dark?  i find that i get bad reflection off of oncoming car head lights and end up riding with my visor up the whole time.

Could it be a scratched visor?

there is a scrach but in my line of sight.

if i dont use the pin lock the whole visor mists over on my shoei raid2 and i cant see any thing. must be a design flaw of the helmet not sure if i need to buy a new clear visor or not?

Clear pinlock visor

isn't much good when fixed to a mirrored visor.

Get a plain one, and there will be no reflections.:wink:

its a clear visor and a normal clear pin lock.

i my get a new clear visor and hope it does not fog as much or leave the visor open at night and wear saftey glasses.

my black visor with no pinlock is fine.

Clean

both. The pins the pinlock attaches to are designed to twiddle to ensure you get a good fit with your visor.


Ensure this is correct. You will get a halo effect off car headlights in the dark even when correctly set up. You will get used to this and blank it out.

^^^^^ I'll 2nd what Phil said!

Take the insert out and gently rinse it under a running warm tap. Use a drop of washing up liquid to shift shit on both sides. Then hang up to dry for an age. The surface coating is hygroscopic so will absorb moisture!

Clean your visor in a similar way..
If this doesn't fix it, get a new pinloc, that ones boogered! How old is it?..
