Ive got pinlock insert but also have a hyper optic one on another lid, given the choice Id get another undrilled visor and get the hyper optic insert that changes tint according to light conditions as these are supposed to be ace.


Still havent seen the superbike version pinlock promised as the top seal is too low on the eyes when you want to go race stylee, head down business. The standard one is a pain as you need to keep your head relatively level.

My pinlock thingy kept coming loose and misting up between the layers. I eventually ripped it out while on a ride and replaced it with a cheap fog city type stick on.


Although it isn't perfectly stuck down ( it lifts in the middle ) it is much better than the old system.


I think I will get another one and make a better job of fitting it and see how it goes.

You get a tiny slip of info on how to fit the pinlock when I bought my inserts but make sure the arrows on the pins face outwards and really press yer visor flat on the floor on a cushion, knee on one side hand on the other cos it'll only work if you lay it flat then as it comes back to shape the seal will stay 8) 8)

Just smear the inside with neat washing up liquid, works a treat :lol:

 

I suffer with fogging badly, and have heard this is a great idea.


Do you clean it off, or just smear it inside and let it dry?

 

Just let it dry, obviously you don't need too much.

Doesnt matter how vented your helmet is when your at the lights as they depend on moving air.

Although smearing washing up liquid stops some of the fogging its like looking through dirty warped glass.Personaly vision is very important and to use something which blurrs your vision just isnt worth it.

You can fit Hyper Optiks to any visor(even without pins)as it has a self adhesive border which keeps it in place.


In March "Ride" mag tests them all.


Pinlock £18(insert) was top...Then

Fog tech £10 for 12 sachets

FC Hyper Optiks £30(insert)

Respro foggy mask £14(rider wears it.Not so good if you wear specs)

Bob Heath Fog demon £15(insert)

Shift-anti fog £2.50(spray)

GP products inside out £5(spray)


The rest below are a waste of time and money

Hein Gericke anti fog £4(spray)

Motrax fog free £4(spray)

Yoshimoto fog off £4(spay)

Bob Heath anti fog £3.50(spray)

Muc off anti fog £10(spray)

Then last was washing up liquid.


All spray on and wipes leave a greasy blurry effect

Even at the lights its not like you have moving air to clear the visor.

My hands were that cold the other day that i couldnt pop my visor open to talk to a friend.Had to wait to get home take my gloves off.The pain in my thumb trying to open it :lol:

Fit a FC and forget about it
