Arai XD-4 / XD-3 Pinlock Insert

Pinlock insert for Arai XD-4 and XD-3 helmets. Pinlock-ready face shield sold separately.

Note: In RevZilla's experience, Pinlock shields and inserts for Arai XD-4 Helmets are not as effective as Pinlock shields and inserts for other Arai helmets due to the compound curves of the shield.

Installed Correctly, It works Perfectly
I hesitated to buy the pinlock lens/visor for my XD4 due to the reviews here on ZLA, and the specific warning from Revzilla on the page for the pinlock, but tried it anyway as I noticed a few guys with GS's managed to make it work.

I was ready to modify the lens with a Dremel if needed, but thankfully, it just needed to be installed correctly.

Maybe Arai moved the eccentric adjusters back a bit, but the adjusters on my visor have enough range to accommodate the pinlock lens just fine.

I had to install it twice before I got a proper fit, and even then had to push it up a bit to make the gasket seal all the way around. I then fine tuned where the lens touched the visor with the eccentric adjusters. Now it doesn't touch.

I've tested it down to 25F and it's fantastic. I got the yellow tinted one, and it makes grey days POP! Everything looks so bright and nice. When I open the visor, it looks depressing and ugly out there!

My only gripe is the pinlock lens rubs the top of the XD4's visor seal when I open the visor. We'll see how long that lasts...

Either way, considering how effective it is at eliminating (not reducing) fog inside the visor, it's completely worth it.

Even with max adjustment didnt fit too well into visor
On time delivery, looks great, good quality product, just it doesn't fit too well into the visor. Have ordered a second pair of visor and pinlock - same issue, even with max adjustment the fit is not good especially for a product of this price

Not Useable
Purchased the pinlock insert along with a new Arai XD4 pinlock face shield. The insert does not fit properly on the sheild to form the necessary gap between the shield and the lens insert. The insert pushes itself against the sheild in several places even with the pins adjusted to their most open position. For a proper fit only the inserts gasket should make contact with the face sheild. Useless!!!

Have not had this problem with previous pinlock systems on Shoei helmets.

Works Great! no issues
I installed it on a new visor before installing on the helmet. i read in 30 deg weather and it does not fog at all! I have tried different products and this one actually works. adjust the cams to make sure the shield if flush against the visor.

Best way to beat fogup
I live in the Pacific Northwest where riding in the cold and rain can be a common occurrence. I've found pinlock visors and inserts are ideal for keeping the visor clear in wet conditions. I've tried various antifog creams and sprays and been disappointed. I've noticed fog around the peripheral part of the shield where the pinlock doesn't cover and still had clear vision in the viewing area proving how well it works. The insert is easy to install if you follow the directions, it requires removal of the shield to do it properly.

Wow, fog, rain vision is much improved.
Should have invested sooner!

Arai XD-4 Pinlock visor
Having the option of having a tinted visor that's interchangeable is very helpful. I currently have the light smoke insert and it provides just enought blockage when I ride into the sun on my morning commute. Very easy to install. Make sure to read the instructions that come from Pinlock.

Excellent product
Bought this item for a trip across country in the spring to try and keep from having to deal with fogging on my XD-4. Hit rain, snow, and near freezing temperatures with no fogging issues. Even tried to get it to fog unsuccessfully at a couple times just to see it I could. Expensive but cured my fogging issues. Would be better if it was a little easier to remove and install so you could easily swap it out with other tints.

No more leaving the visor open in rain!
Great product. I would say a little on the pricey side, but then I remember how much I've spent on snake oils to prevent fogging. Finally, something that works!

As always, RevZ delivers! Thanks!

Fog is gone!!
Great add on for my Arai XD-4. I tend to breathe deep and heavy and tried several antifog products (liquids, etc etc). This solution worked perfectly once I installed it on my helmet. I had to correct the gap to make it fit perfectly on the faceshield. No big deal!

I have used these for about 4 years, they work well but the silicone seal wears out and they need to be replaced annually.

David H on May 16, 2016
Pin lock visor is highly resistant to fogging up. I find it doesn't seal great at the tip of the lower front, but it doesn't cause but a small amount of fogging.
brlystad on May 10, 2016
Need a tinted insert for the Arai XD-4. It should be included as the helmet is expensive enough as is.
Greg M on Apr 21, 2016
Xd4 gets way too foggy in the moderately cold. Arai it's annoy I have to buy an add on for a new helmet to make it usable.

Through ALL of my diligent research , I never saw the warning about this helmets fogging problem. First ride and BAM ! Fogging at 60F in the desert? Hope this fixes it cuz I love the helmet.

Daniel E on Apr 19, 2015
I was tired of my visor fogging up. I tried the foam nose cover thingy and I tried covering my face with a buff, but nothing worked. One of my friend's told me about pinlock and I was sold. I won't wear a helmet without on now, doesn't matter the weather or time of year. Colorado's weather is so unpredictable that it is necessary year round.
Steve B on Feb 25, 2015
I bought this to go with the replacement XD-4 shield I bought. If it's like the last one, then the seal will fail because it is not formed to the profile of the XD-4 shield, which has harder vertical angles. Dust will get between the shield and the lens and scratch both, meaning they'll both need replacing. Expect to either clean both regularly or replace them every season.
Manny V on Feb 17, 2015
To eliminate the need to leave the stock Face Shield cracked open to keep from fogging.

The pinlock System is amazing. I rode from Chicken Alaska to Dawson City, Yukon while it poured rain the entire time. My visor did not fog at all within the pinlock layer.
Daniel P on Oct 11, 2014
The weather is starting to get cold in the NW and I want to keep commuting to work. A clear visor is one more thing that's going to keep me safe!

Need new visor and I wanted to try the pinlock system. Spring and fall or rainy weather riding are tough here in the North. Gotta try this system rather than 36 degree weather in an open visor.

Is there a photochromatic ProtecTint insert available for this shield?
A shopper on Aug 15, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Turns out pinlock makes them but they are only sold overseas. The xd4 is known as the tour x4 there so thats what you need to search for if you want to buy one.
Which tint is best, light smoke or dark smoke? Is light smoke dark enough for broad daylight?
Samuel T on Aug 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Go for the dark had the light smoke for awhile not dark enough for bright days and if you ride past dusk just stop and pop it out and ride with the clear lens
Hi. I have an Arai Tour Cross 3 (which I purchased here in my home country). I suspect is the same as the XD4.

My question is whether the pinlock insert for the XD4 will fit my Tour Cross 3?

Here's the link to the tour cross for your reference : http://www.arai.co.jp/jpn/offtrial/tx3_t.htm
Gavin T on Jul 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Well I think it should fit. looks like the same helmet. But I would check with Revzilla technical rep or Arai. I have the XD 3 and 4 both with pin lock. Works great!!!
Will the Pinlock insert/lens from a Shoei Neotec/Qwest fit the Pinlock visor for an Arai XD3?
Robert C on Mar 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Likely not. The XD3/4 shield has some compound curves to it, the inserts do not fit universally.
Is this the correct visor for the arai pinlock lens for the Signet-Q?
A shopper on Mar 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I bought the XD4 helmet not the Signet Q
Which color is the high vis? Orange or Yellow?
A shopper on Dec 2, 2013
BEST ANSWER: It's yellow, or more specifically luminous yellow.
