Nolan helmet anti fog shield adjusment

I called for an RMA today on my Nolan. The head liner will not lock and stay in place.

In the process, I asked how much to replace the shield and anti fog shield, due to ever so slight scratches between the two I can not buff out.

I now find, due to harmonics from the wind, the pins that hold the anti fog shield in place rotate, and are used to better lock the fog shield to prevent any vibrations. You think, they would have put a warning sticker on the shield stating that. Maybe they did. I don't recall seeing one.

So, if you have a Nolan and use the anti fog shield, you NEED to adjust the pins.

Their rep told me it was done with a screwdriver. My shield has tiny levers on the outside of the visor you rotate.

Another lesson learned the hard way. I won't be spending the $60 to replace those two items.........

Is the anti fog shield the extra one that comes with the helmet or the one installed?

Re: Nolan helmet anti fog shield adjusment

The anti fog goes inside the clear visor. Both are included when you buy the helmet, but the anti fog is not installed. It worked great and I had no fog, but, when I realized there was some scarring of the shield and found it was caused by vibrations between the two, due to the lugs supposedly not being correctly positioned........that is a $60+ repair.

Hoping to save someone else the expense.
