I don't know honestly :dunno: I am in NC and end up with bugs and junk on my shield every ride. So I'm cleaning my shield after every ride.r3yrey said:so i guess it depends on how often you put windex on the visor and how much... cause i was told by one of the reps from vega helmets that ammonia can cause cloudiness or make the visor "opaque".
anyhow, if its one of those $99 helmet i probbly wont care, but for the $400 one, I wont take my chance.... scratch that... visors can easily be replaced! so i guess its no problem
lol.. i live in AL and i go to Mt.Cheaha every weekend to ride the twisties and i swear, it feels like i'm hitting every bug from my house to the mt. and back! so yeah me too, i clean my bike and my helmet pretty often. I guess i'l try using windex or plexus on my visor/shield. I do know that they have alcohol on them so i guess that helps with fogging too!DanQ said:I don't know honestly :dunno: I am in NC and end up with bugs and junk on my shield every ride.

Yeah bro... the reaction from your sweat on the materials in the lining of the helmet breaks down the materials. I sweat a lot, and I'm in NC, plus, I tend to put a LOT of effort into my riding at times. So I change out every two years or so.r3yrey said:lol i see! i wouldnt worry about it too much then! thnks
btw.. i didnt know youre suppiose to get new helmets every 5 years? ever with no incidents? not even dropping the helmet to the ground?
anyway... I'm new to motorcycling... i learn something everyday i'm on this forums... thanks for the advice!
I've heard about that, but never any substantiation on whether it's UV, chemical, or otherwise.mac020 said:Also the shell continues to harden untill it becomes brittle.
