Easy Way to Change an Arai Shield (Visor)!


Psych! Made you look! There is no easy way to remove and/or reinstall an Arai motorcycle helmet visor. I loved the discontinued Arai Signet, and I like its replacement, the Profile (being the only lids that so well fit my "long-oval" noggin), but I hate the practical Arai continues to play on we poor saps. C'mon now Arai: I rebuilt the top end of a 4-stroke motorcycle engine at age 15; I spent 8 years as a technician on one of the world's most advanced jet fighters; I even have a working understand of the Copenhagen Theory of quantum mechanics; yet, I struggle with a bloody Arai helmet visor that has less than one moving part! Fortunately, some others have it figured out.  Check out these instructional videos and pick the technique that works for you: Service Pavilion's "How to Change an Arai Shield"; "How to Change an Arai Visor"; "How to Change the Arai Helmet Shield"; and, "Arai Helmet Visor Shield Replace".

that's awesome! We have the same problem here at our motorcycle rental shop in los angeles. So we quit trying to replace them ourselves.

Those links are great though. Thanks for sharing!

Yeah, somehow the folks in the videos make it look simple. I don't know why Arai can't just go to a simple system like Shoei, Shark or Scorpion. Arai claims it would compromise the shell, but I believe it's just being stubborn.
