I looked on my bottle of Rain-X Anti-Fog...NOT FOR USE ON PLASTICS unless noted by manufacturer. So I guess that's out.

Try washing the faceshield with dishwasher soap, rise it a little and dry it out with a paper tissue (very lightly) so as to leave a bit of the soap on the faceshield, it helps dimish the fogging a bit and it's almost free... works on my shoei...

Oh yeah, that time of year again. That chilly, cold feeling on the face is invigorating, it's a
good wake-up when driving to work at 7 AM. Have switched from a Full Face Helment
to a good quality Half Helmet just to get more fresh, crisp air flowing around my morning wakeing brain.

Been looking for an Anti-Fog wipe on cloth myself. Will have to checkout
Walmart.

Will be storing Lena this Winter and riding my KLR650 over the snow and
slush, but no, no ice whatsoever. There is an employee at the VA Hospital
here that rides his Gold Wing every day of the year, he must have some sort
of knack for riding on snow and ice. Studded MC tires are no longer available at Tire shops,
but some people stud their own tires. They may be still selling studded MC Tires in Canada,
will have to check into it.

I'd say put your feet out, but we know that doesn't work.

I like the cold on my face too, but when I have to go 10 miles at freeway speeds, I end up talking like I've been shooting up novocaine. For 30 minutes, at least.

Hey Mushu - good tip. I know the trick to most anti-fog products is not to clean the surface like you would normally - just leave a residue layer.

there was some anti fog stuff somewhere for plastics... cant remember where... try looking under helmet accesories on some websites..... also what helmet you got. some have a anti fog thing that you can purchase separate.

I used a version of THESE in my goggles when I played paintball.
The ones in the link are different in that there's also a gasket with them. The ones I used for goggles were just a clear laminate sheet that you applied on the inside of the lens using soapy water. Dried pretty clear when properly applied and worked great for no more fogging. I thought there was a similar plain laminate for face shields, but I can't seem to find one on the WWW.
There are probably some on ebay.

Scuba divers just spit in the mask. Do you have enough for the whole face shield ?

both my sunglasses and my visor fog on a regular basis in the morning here in Maine. I would love to know if something actually works. I haven't tried the spit yet, I usually have a mouthful of decaf and I doubt coffee works the same.:beerchug:

I haven't tried any of the Fog City products I mentioned previously on my street helmet yet. But I did find a snowmobile shield on ebay that fit my helmet. (HJC CL12 StreetFighter)
I've only used it a couple times so far, but it seems to work pretty good.
It's a double layer shield.

I will look up the link when I get off work but if someone else wants to start there are some products in the J&P catolog.

I just bought a Scott anti-fog thingy. It is a cloth you use on your shield and or glasses/sunglasses. It works great. Got it at the Suzuki dealer who ordered my t/s relocation kit.

I think it is specifically for snowmobile riders and their goggles, but my perscription WilyX sunglasses have a removable foam insert to block out wind during a ride and they were really bad about fogging up, so I tried it and NO FOG whatsoever since... I am sold on this thing, especially because it only cost a couple of bucks.:smiley_th

I like acetone. At first it seemed to make rough, but then I figured out how to do it. It gets so clear you can put your hand through it, and it no longer fogs up. The only downside is that rain and wind comes through it as well.
