iced up visor

is there a gizmo to deal with this ? fair made my heart flutter as the clear patch grew less and less this morning on the motorway:ph43r:.

Short of pulling onto the hard shoulder,which I didn't fancy in the fog. I was scraping and rubbing like mad and I  just couldn't clear it .

Any of you had this and sorted it ?

fair comment ac:biggrin:

'pose it's just one of those mornings .Was bone dry but cold in Worcester so thought the bike would be no probs, then came the fog which made the visor wet ,then the snow at Tewkesbury and finally when I got to Cheltenham the temp dropped right off and it all froze .

I managed to eliminate most of the 'gaps' ( sleeves and neck) so wasn't too cold in meself ,but not being able to see where you're going does put a damper on the morning :lol:!

Old dispatch rider trick

Pour some washing up liquid in a pot & add a drop of antifreeze & wipe it over your visor, then wipe the visor until clear with some bog roll or kitchen roll. :wink:

Potatoes - Anybody tried it on a visor?

I remember the old guy I worked with said he cut a potato in half and rubbed it on his car windscreen when a frost was forecast, he swore by it. I never did ask him what he did with the potato afterwards.



Scuba divers rub spit inside their masks to stop them misting up on the inside.


I use Mr Sheen inside & out on my visor, not great but works to a point.


The Fairy liquid used by many people is slightly abrasive and will eventually remove the coating from a visor. It works ok on the old glass goggles the classic guys wear.

Think you could have cracked it

without knowing  KS,Moto cross helmet and goggles with a roll off system,might even fit inside the full face you are wearing now?

Heated visor.

Heated visors are (apparently) on their way to us from the snowmobile world.

However a new visor (free of tiny scratches) might help, cleaned and polished thoroughly before you go out.

Talking of visor cleaning, Tesco Economy Handywipes (60p per pack of 100) do a great job on summer flies, etc. I'm not sure what the detergent residue does in icy conditions though. Smearing and halo-ing, possibly.

i'd go with snowboard goggles as they're (doubleglazed) maked up of a 2 lens sandwich,i've never managed to get them to steam up, even in hottish early spring conditions.

Tbh, they'ed need to fit the helmet very well indeed, other wise you'd freeze ya chuffing nogging off :wink::smile
