Need visor for BMW System 4 helmet!

I have a System 4 helmet (don't ask how I got it), and need a replacement visor (or 2). I can't seem to find anyplace with Google that actually has one in stock (I ordered a couple from www.thevisorshop.com and two weeks later they informed me they don't actually have them!).

Do any of you know of a dealer that might have some System 4 visors AND would sell/ship them to me over here in the USA? I love this helmet, but really need a new visor!

TIA!

It was the largest size they made in the System 4 - I think it was also called the Sport-Integral. I'd love to order both a clear and a tinted visor if they've got 'em!

Thanks for checking!!

Last time I needed a visor for my BMW helmet. I got one shipped from a Canadian dealer. I have also gotten them in Paris. I go to Paris oftern and I visit the BMW moto delaer once in awhile. I will be going again in early October and maybe I can arrange to get you what you need, if I have enough lead time.

My local dealer can get clear visors form Germany for 35 GBP each - they cannot supply tinted visors. Teh BMW tint is to dark to be legally sold in the UK.

Let me know what you want then you can Paypal me and I will order and send them out to you.

Hi Graham,

who's your local dealer? BMW type or general Motorcycle dealer. I have a system 4 too, and locally not been able to find one. Might give your guys a ring to get a spare before they go out of production.

My local dealer is Motorrad Central a BMW dealer. They do not have any in stock so they would have to come from the Fatherland. Your other option is a System 5 that they are selling cheap as the new 6 is out :-) If you want to add one on to any order Bruce places lt me know.

Re: Need visor for BMW System 4 helmet!

I can also help if any one needs parts for helmets or any other accessory.

my dealer ( official BMW dealer) Herpigny Motor in Namur is a great guy and holds a lot of spares.
I previously helped a LT owner for such visors.
