    No More Loose Visor!
    The visor on my C3 would not stay open so I installed these and presto, good as new. Please read the instructions because the mechanisms are specific to the left and right side of the helmet. Took about 10-15 to make the switch, easy.
    Fixes wandering faceshield on C3 Pro...
    These overpriced plastic pieces are must have for your helmet.
    I carry a spare set just in case.
    Fixed my shield from not staying on the height I would set it at.
    Schuberth should include an extra set of these with every helmet.
    If I know today would be in next week.

    Try sending a message to Fortnine to see if they will get you one in. They sell Schubert helmets. Might be cheaper.

    They aren't. If no takers I'll add a visor maybe tho not really needed.
    There are some homegrown fixes too.

    I had my C3 Pro replaced last year under warranty so no need for this. One fix I saw on ADV rider was guys were putting the foam ring you get with a blank CD spindle and putting that in. Not sure how exactly it worked but the guy who did it said it was fine.

    I saw that.
    Someone talked to Schuberth support and they claimed it was a safety feature when it "wandered down" on its own

    I'd like it to work as it should. The helmet is 4 years old and I'm second owner. a few bucks to make it work properly I think well spent. I'll be seriously annoyed if it does not tho and "wanders down".

    As it gets hotter I want it to stay ....if it doesn't I tend to ride with the convertible top up...not so safe.

    Re: Schuberth S2 /C3 / C3 Pro Visor Mechanism Kit - small group buy.

    Got around to installing the kit today.

    I think it's a good idea to buy a fresh pinlock when you buy the kit. I found out the hard way the seal on the pinlock does not keep out the cleaning water/detergent.

    The pinlocks scratch easily ( not me ) and so when I get back in October I will order one or two....

    Tip on the mechanism ...the Allen size is different between the replacement kit and the original and I just used the original as they were a higher quality.

    Nice to have a working shield and a one with much better optical quality without the pinlock.

    That said...the pinlock is incredible when it is cold.....really is anti-fog.

    this is good to know, was thinking of giving my visor a good submersion wash

    do you wear corrective lenses MD?
    I have some weird optical distortion with the pinlock sometimes
    but it may be the polarization on the scrip sunglasses I wear riding

    a wandering down visor is a safety feature?

    I don't wear glasses when riding but I could see there might optical weirdness...it's an optically very good visor without the pinlock in place..was like getting a new helmet today

    It's really a rip off ...it's only the teeth that wear and that plastic part should be kicked out by a 3d printer for zilch.

    In theory a little tip of some sort of weld should repair a worn one.
