Is there a product out there that helps cut down fogging on my helmet shield? It's not a big problem but is quite annoying! Especially in the rain when I can't crack it to let some air flow!!!!!!
I have a few home remedies that work for me. A few drops of dish soap on both sides of the face shield, rubbed into the shield until dry, then buffed with a cloth helps keep the fog at bay. I will need to do this once a month or so. Two other methods that works is to take apple slices and rub the shield inside and out, and buff. You can use slices of potato instead of apples. Buff when dry, or you will have bad swirl marks that will be very distracting when sunlight hits it.
There are commercial preparations you can buy.
Some of it is learning how to breath in the helmet. You will learn how to direct your breath so that you are not fogging up the visor.
I had the chance to ride a day and night with a pinlock, when I REALLY needed it, and LOVED it! Works perfectly except at night when it gets a halo effect of lights. If your not around to may lights then it is not a major problem and I got around town just fine as it was better then dealing with the fog. As it gets colder now with winter coming I will most likely end up with this myself.If you have a Shoei RF1100 or many of the HJC's then get the Pinlock shield and insert. Fogging is never an issue again once those are installed
I am really glad you mentioned the glasses. That's another problem for me. Even when breathing downward. Especially when I have on my balaclava (sp?) at night or early in the morningForgot to mention...
I wear glasses and the Respro Foggy keeps them from fogging too. Really you won't go back to topical solutions after you use the Respro.
Butter? Surely you mean bacon grease. Now that I have re-read this post has anyone actually TRIED bacon grease for de-fogging?It was super windy and 42 degrees on my way in to work. I was headed due north and the wind was straight out of the west, so my east side shield fogged up some..
Tonight I'm going to do the Potato trick.. Then I'm slicing it and a few of his friends, as well as an onion, and frying the whole shooting match in butter..
Then I'll go riding to see if it still fogs.. (burp)
