How to change a visor on motorcycle helmet


In this short article and clip we show you how to quickly change the visor or shield on a genuine Harley-Davidson motorcycle helmet. This is handy if you wish to switch from a your clear visor to the tinted option. Given that different manufacturers of helmets make their visor or shield releases in different ways, the basic idea is the same for all. Each visor clips to the helmet with a release button or tab near the ear area of the helmet, and once found, this makes changing out your visors simple. Sometimes the release mechanism is concealed, so check out the owner's manual for your helmet for specific instructions on locating it.

1 Rest your helmet on a soft surface so it will not be scratched or damaged.
2 Open the visor as far as it will go, sliding it up on to the top of the helmet.
3 Locate the release mechanism. This appears like a thumb tab or button.
4 Press the release tab or button, one side at a time. The visor will feel loose when this is accomplished.
5 Slide the visor off by pushing it straight off the helmet.
6 Replace with the new visor by sliding it onto the helmet in the up or open position.
7 Push the visor into the release mechanism until you hear it click in securely then lock the thumb tab or button.
