Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Answer to visor misting

I got one of these self-adhesive pinlock visors. It seemed worth the risk at only a fiver on ebay, and I must say I'm well impressed. The weather at the moment is cold and humid in the evenings - just right for really annoying fogging on the visor. However I find there is no problem at all, even with my visor tight shut.

Should have said my helmet is a 12 year old Shoei RXR, and at the moment a replacement isn't affordable.

don't blame you, only reason I have a second is that the insurance after the crash bought me a new one and I still think there is life left in it.

in summary was just agreeing that they are great at stopping misting but will need to renew the strip after awhile.

I got an NXR a while back.  A nice lid, much smaller and lighter than my XR1100.  An improvement in every way apart from an annoying piece of velour on the right hand strap that seems to twist out of the way allowing the strap to dig into my jaw bone.

www.racevisors.co.uk are giving away an excellent transitions visor free with every NXR at the moment.

Matt black helmets in the summer sun are a good means of frying your brains. Even shiny black ones are uncomfortable in the summer.

Pinlock is a marvellous invention, especially when used with a Bob Heath V-Wipe.

I have a Shoei Neotech and found it was fogging even with the Pinlock. After much trial and error I found the chin piece was the problem. It virtually seals the helmet at the front and doesn't allow any air in or breath out. Removing it was too cold in the winter, so I punched a few holes in it and not had a problem since.
