Does anyone know a quick and/or easy fix to a sticky SPH-5 visor? It's a single visor helmet and I've already added the black shims to the tracks on the helmet. Thanks!

This answer comes from a guy that does not own a helmet but here goes Does it seem mechanical (hitting something) or stiff from friction? If it is a friction type stiffness try a spray silicon on the moving parts. Mask off the visor so you don't get silicon on the visual part of it. Similar plastics have a bad habit of not wanting to slide across each other smoothly.

If you have not tried the silicon yet Teflon spray may work better because it will have less residue. It comes out of the can as a clear thin liquid but dries clear. Again i would keep it off the visors visual area, I don't know exactly how clear it dries because I have never used it on a clear surface.

Actually I tried the silicone spray with excellent results. When it needs another treatment I will try the teflon. Thanks again!

1 Take out the 4 screws holding the visor on
2 Check to see where it's rubbing
3 Take a No. 2 pencil and rub on all the chafe marks
4 Re-assemble
5 Profit!
