noob with a helm question

Just bought my first bike this weekend, as well as my helmet. I got the Joe Rocket RKT 201.

Where would I look to order a new, dark, visor? Is it easy to switch them out?

Thanks!

Thanks... That was easier than I thought it would be.

How dark are the dark visors? Should I go light smoke or dark smoke?

Also, you should consider Hyper Optiks. I believe Cycle Gear carries them. It's a film you stick inside your original visor that tints in the sunlight.

The dark smoke can be way to dark for night time riding but very nice during the day. The visors are so easy to remove just use the clear it comes with at night and the dark smoke on sunny days.

I personally use a light smoke all the time.

Depends on how dark you want it to be, and how often you want to change them out.

I have a clear and dark visor. When I ride on really sunny days, the dark works perfectly, no need for sunglasses under the lid. If it is dusk or night I use the clear of course. I don't ride all day and through the night though...I just do either/or...

Thanks. I'm going to get the dark. Looks like you can switch them out in less than a minute.

Plus, since I'm just learning to ride (havet made it out of first gear yet) I'll only be riding in the day for awhile.
