Arai helemt visor swapping prob

When I go to switch my visor on my RX7-RR those little lever thingy's like dont work too well, is there a way to take off those cover lookin things on the side of the helmet to see whats going on in there. I like my helmet and dont really want to buy a new one yet.

Yes you can remove the covers and get replacement levers.

Re: Arai helemt visor swapping prob

I've never figured it out completely, either. I've seen people swap Arai shields in seconds...so it CAN be done.

But I take the side covers off. Look behind the cover from the front and you'll see a red "button" on the bottom. Push that button and lift the bottom of the cover up(out). There's another tab underneath the top of the cover that you release by sliding the cover up (toward the top of the helmet). Put the other shield on and snap the covers back into place.

I can swap my visor on my Corsair without even taking the helmet off thanks to Nicky Hayden's informative video .

Should have watched Colin's. He'll teach you how to be too smart to remove it.

Re: Arai helemt visor swapping prob

I recall having to fight with sheild removal when the little lever thingys weren't in the correct position when the existing sheild was installed.

I always make sure the levers are correctly positioned (in a down position) now and I have no problems doing a quick swap...no side cover popping now.

Works pretty well. I can easily swap my shield in ~30 sec or less.

Maybe it's an ID ten T error

Re: Arai helemt visor swapping prob

If you don't LUBE the plastic parts they wear down, that's all. That's why the helmet comes with that tiny jar of goo.



I'm sure BDA will have a blast with that post .
