    Try the Schuberth C3. Changing faceshields literally takes two seconds

    For $700 smakers it should have a self changing faceshield.

    Bought an Arai earlier this year. Came with a DVD that has the video. With the video in front of me I still can't get the shield off. Several lessons at the dealership.....to no avail. Usually just take shields off to remove bugs....but no can do. Gotta clean the helmet with the shield on. Depressing.

    Yeah, it's a bit steep. But a comfortable long-distance helmet that fits your noggin is worth every penny.

    I have two Shoei helmets and discovered on a YouTube video that the visor snaps into place. I thought I had to pull the locking mechanism, put the visor in and release. Wrong! Glad I learned this after almost three years of use. Makes visor changes easier.

    WalterK75 - That Shoei tip is super! Just tried out the snap-in process on my X-11 - it worked great - never knew about it until now. Thanks!
