Fix for fogging face shield?

Hey guys, anyone have a tip on something that ACTUALLY WORKS for fogging up face shield? I rode 30 miles into work this morning and my gear kept me totally warm, the only issue I had was trying to SEE! I have a Shoei RF1100, it's a great helmet w plenty of ventilation. Suggestions???

anti fog at motorcycle superstore...

I used rain x anti fog on mine. Just make sure you have a clean micro fiber cloth and it will not scratch the shield

^ What he said, Or maybe they make a breath box for your Helmet, OR you could do what I do and just pop open the visor at each stop. Annoying but it works.

Anything under 30 and I crack the visor a little. The vents do the rest once I get moving.

Do what you did with your swimming goggles as a kid. Spit on the inside and wipe it around with your finger!

Actually, we use a drop of watered down baby shampoo or de-fog products. They work better than spit.

I've had this same problem with my shoei x-11, but not at all with my cheap fulmer. Maybe nexttime I'll have to try a little spit.

Yea but spit is so much easier to carry around and it's a lot harder to lose.
It's been a while but I like to dive to.
Just sayin.

I was only making a joke, I wouldn't spit on a moto face shield. There are several products at auto parts stores that help with fogging.
Personally I just crack it open a little and when stopped, try to breathe down and out the bottom. Works ok.

Man I have same shell, shouldnt have any problems, open up your nose vent and the rear vent. It only gets bad at redlights if you have a chin curtain in.
