HJC HJ-09 Pinlock-Ready Face Shield
Identical to visor that comes with helmet
This was a perfect, identical replacement to the visor that came with my HJC CL-17. The original some got scratched (seriously no idea how) and this replaced it perfectly. Pinlock installed without issue.

Looks good but misses the mark
I purchased the gold mirrored visor and put it on my helmet immediately. What I noticed with the new visor was that the tabs that were supposed to make contact with the helmet were slightly off spec. They did not make contact with the helmet and thus the latches did not engage. I applied a few layers of tape to fill the gap between the visor tabs and the latching system.
Had it not been for this spacing issue, the install would have been extremely simple.
The visor works excellently in the day, in terms of vision. During all times of the day, I am never blinded by a rising or setting sun. However, there are some gaps in the visor that I could not fix. Thus, when I turn to look over my shoulder, air gets blown through the visor.

Easy to swap b/w smoke/clear. And pinlock ROCKS
I bought the smoke (not the dark smoke) for daytime riding. I have used it at dawn and dusk, and on cloudy days, and it isn't too dark, yet provides adequate protection on glaring days. Perfect balance.
Swapping between the clear and smoke takes less than 30 seconds. Only problem would be going for a ride in the evening, and heading back at night, in which case I would use the clear lens leaving the house anytime I would expect to return after dark. I haven't used it at night, but wouldn't risk it.
The pinlock lens insert (bought separately) works great. Would never use a len without it. No substitute for going fog-free. I would have paid a bit extra for the lens if it came with the insert rather than having to buy it separately.

Looks way better in person.
So far so great! I received the item in a quick fashion and man does it make a huge difference in the way my helmet looks ( Mirror Smoke ). Great for daytime riding and night even though its a little dark at night and takes some getting use to. I did some major research prior to ordering, and i must say be careful with the storage and operation of the screen because once scratched, things may get out of spec and warp view may occur. I will update my review once i have scratched it :)

The dark smoke replacement shield fits as well if not better than the original that came with the helmet. Very good fit and finish. Now people can't see my ugly face when I Starr them down for cutting me off in traffic.

love the urgency of getting my product to me so that I can ride

It does its job
I got the amber colored one. It comes with the pinlock ready, you don't need anything else for it. It doesn't come with the anti-fog piece though, but it does have the pins for one, so I just took the anti-fog piece off my clear lens and put it on without issue.

Does what it is supposed to!
It's not perfect, there is still some fogging up from time to time, but it's a HUGE improvement to what I was dealing with before. I couldn't even keep my visor down all the time. I don't have that problem now.
I do find that I am getting more glares with the insert though, which is a little annoying, but not horrible.
