System 6 Helmet

I purchased a system 6 helmet a couple of months ago and the integral sunglasses mechanism has stopped working and consequently the sunglasses are not popping down.

I have tried to get to the mechanisim but need an instruction manual. Does anybody out there have one?

And before you say I should take it back to the agent, I purchased the product in another country because I live on a small island in the Med.

Any help will be appreciated.

Re: System 6 Helmet

Is there a BMW dealer in Malta? If so, and you have the receipt they should honour the warranty, regardless of where the helmet was bought.

ps. I've been to Malta twice and wish I was there now. It's -7C here with snow on the ground.

Hi yes there is an agent in Malta and the GM is a frend of mine and since I did not buy the helmet from him so I feel a bit awkward taking it to him now with a problem.

As for the weather it is warm and clear, perfect for a day out on the bike.

Re: System 6 Helmet

It's relatively easy to remove the helmet lining and access the small bowden cable that operates the tinted visor. It's mostly pop studs to remove the lining and a couple of screws to remove the polystyrene cheek panels. BMW have a dealer DVD to demonstrate the correct fitting method for the installation of the blue tooth communication system. Talk to your friend at the dealership and maybe he can source one for you to view.
