Helmet Fogging up.

New to riding. Just bought a '00 KLR. Signed up for a safety course, got my gloves, armored jacket and HJC Paradox CS-R1 helmet. The helmet fogs up like a bastard, unless I seriously restrict my breathing. Is this a common problem?
any help would be great.

Try rubbing a tiny bit of dish washing liquid on the inside of your visor before you go for a ride..... you can also use an anti fogging liquid but the detergent does the same thing and cost nearly nothing

No bike as yet

Fog happens but I can assure you that once the moderators pick up on your overuse of colorful euphemisms you may be sanctioned or banned.

Dan,

I was just giving you a heads up. This is a good forum, for the most part it is free of arguments and members trash talking. Since I've been using this site I have gained a good deal of useful information and have seen some people have their memberships removed for transgressing the site rules.

On the helmet fog thing, check your helmets vent system so that you are getting air flow and when it is cold in the morning I always crack mine up at stop lights to avoid fogging. I live in Alaska and it is cool almost every morning or all day and flipping my visor at stops has become second nature.

No. He did not alert the authorities. He did the right thing by letting you know that it is not in the best interest to abuse colorful language, on the forum. Now... First of all welcome! Fog issues happen. What maprimm, and Hardyreels said is good info. You may also try a goggle ant-fog cloth, can be purchased cheap, and stored on the bike very easy!

Take care, and ride safe!

I've got a bit of a problem with cursing, too. And my name is Dan. It's all good, man. Just try to remember that every one has their comfort levels and no one wants anyone to feel uncomfortable here. I'm surprised no one has ever said anything to me. Folks is pretty easygoing here, just something to be aware of.

Breathe through your nose if you aren't. Seems obvious, but exhaling through your nose directs the air down, not into the shield. Makes a big difference.

If it REALLY bugs you, get some CatCrap. Rub it inside your shield. No more fog. Me, I just crack mine like everybody said.

Peace,

D
