Hi all,

I'm due a new helmet at the next bike show but noticed today that the seal on my pinlock has failed and it steamed between the two lenses. Any idea or tips on how to reinstate the seal from anyone who has had the same problem before I go buy a new one.

Cheers

I had same on my old my Shoei ,

The pins on the visor are concave, and need to be turned to decrease the distance between the pins which in turn forces the insert in the visor for a better seal, worked a treat for me :thumbup

When turning the pins make sure the pinlock insert itself is removed first !!!

you need a very small flat head screwdriver to turn them
