Rain-X and the visor

Anyone tried Rain-X on their helmet visors? I'm afraid of damaging mine, but they don't exactly come with windshield wipers. Turning my head or shaking it gets old after a while. I'm not sure if it will work on plastic the way it works on glass. I hope it does though! This whole week is supposed to be rainy. :BangHead:

Didn't damage the visor on my Arai or HJC.

I've seen a thread like this before and I know someone said to wait a little bit before putting the helmet on cuz of the fumes. I gag when I spray it on my windshield so waiting would be smart

plexus is good stuff, havent used it on the visor though.
rainx seems like a good idea, might have to try that.

if i know im in for a rainy ride, ill tie a bandana around my hand. it totally gets soaked too, but it'll wipe off your visor better than just a gloved hand.

Don't put it on the inside of your visor! Put it on the outside only....RainX also has some anti-fog stuff you can use on the inside.

read the label it says not too.

after saying that; on a polycarbonate (lexan)shield it is great if you have an old acrylic (I don't think you can even get them anymore they say Plexiglase?? on them) it will craze the surface and you can't see.

I've used car wax before. Works better then rain x. Either way, you’re going to make the same effort applying and maintaining the product to your visor as just turning your head to the side.

Rain-X didn't work so hot for me, I found that when I would stop to clean the bugs off I would also be cleaning off the rain-x. Blah, what a waste of time!

try the Honda spray and polish. That stuff works just as well as Rain-X and helps keep bugs from sticking.
