Arai visor

Hello - on my Arai I need to change visor. I have found aftermarket items on ebay, does someone have any experience with them?

I didn't buy that particular sellers product but I have had non genuine smoked visors on my Aria's as long as I can remember, and Ive been wearing them for many years.

Never had a problem with fit or quality.

I will say though I bought a new helmet a few months ago and it was an absolute pain in the bum to change the visor with the new design of the side pods. I ended having to put the pods on both sides and then fitting the visor.

totally unacceptable to take more than 5 seconds to change the visor.

also if those pod things break they are like 80 bucks. a visor is double the price of any other brand

just dont understand why anyone would go with arai unless its a fitment issue

had an arai once saw the error in my ways never again

I have always bought other helmets because of the weird visor fitting issue -- shoei, schuberth, agv. Recently picked up an Arai corsair v and it was like a fucking revelation. What an amazing helmet, so much better than anything I've ever worn. And now that I've changed the visor three or four times, I can do it instantly. You just have to use the lube they give you the first few times and then bam. Recently got the light smoke double-pane anti-fog visor and I'll never need to change it again...

Sad to say I agree - they have changed very little over the years

Visor may have it awkwardness to some but it's a damn good helmet in the end.
