Arai SAI Max Vision Pinlock Insert w/ Brow Vents
Best Arai upgrade available
Not too much to say other than the shield does exactly what it should. I added the clear insert and took it on a 140 mile ride on a 40 degree F day and I didn't have the slightest hint of fog. I would recommend this to any Arai owner.

Scratches easily, must be cleaned with soap and water
Fits perfectly, and seems to work as advertised. But it scratches easily, and you absolutely cannot allow most cleaning solutions in contact with it! I destroyed my pinlock insert when I was cleaning the OUTSIDE of the visor with plexus!
To be fair, the instructions say to clean the insert in soapy water, and not to use any product with alcohol or ammonia. I read the Plexus can and didn't see any mention of either, but still I avoided spraying any of it onto the back of the visor! However, apparently some overspray found its way onto the pinlock insert, and as fast as that, my insert was ruined!
For me, the Plexus issue aside, I find the insert awfully delicate...If you do any riding on dirt roads where the inside of the visor needs to be cleaned routinely, you're going to find that having to use soapy water to clean them is a problem. But if you ride on the street only, and you rarely need to clean the inside of your visor, they'll probably work just fine. For that reason I still recommend them as a good way to fix the fogging issues they're designed to address.

Arai insert good product for fit and finish, but missing on complete satisfactory function.
I didn't choose the correct insert the first time, which was returned, re ordered and now have the correct (light tint) shield insert. HOWEVER, This Arai Shield insert should be improved by including a dark tint band (~ 1 1/2 -2 inches) at the top brow of the insert. Early morning and evening sun glare could be reduced dramatically, especially for the clear and light tint insert. which I now have. I needed and purchased an after market "Fog City Speed tint", which attaches between the shield & insert, and helps alot in reducing glare. An integrated heavier tint band on the clear and lightly tinted Arai insert lens, would be similar to most car windshields.

Easy to place
Great product. Worked as claimed. I will likely purchase other tints.

No more fog
No More fog. Buy all the colours (Colors for you Yanks) for all riding conditions, swap when conditions change. Click in/out system.

Dark smoke replaced my need for sunglasses
This insert is great for the day, but not so much at night. Great part about Arai's pinlock face shields is that you can remove this tinted visor if it gets too dark (Albeit you lose the fog-resistant feature, but you can see the road!).
Great replacement for sunglasses

Works like a charm
Works great! The only thing you will need to get used is the glare from the city lights because you are basically looking through 2 lenses. Besides that it's great. I got the light smoke and works great in the day and at night time is just fine too.

***Absolutely worth it***
Doesn't fog up, the Light Smoke is fine at night, even, by lowering the contrast between headlights/streetlamps and my lighted way. It's a quieter shield, as well, and no more noticeably heavy than a regular "1-ply" shield.
I highly recommend this for others who travel in cold weather, rainy/humid climates.
