HJC HJ-09 Base Plate Kit
Does what it says on the tin
Replacement part. Fits CL-17. Works as expected and easy to install.

Better than stock
Bought these when I goof'd and broke the stock mechanisms on a chair. They're noticeably better than the original. Tighter hold on the visor and the material seems stronger. Top notch.

No durability for a pretty important part of the helmet
So, I have the CL-16 from HJC, which uses the same plates. After about 2 months of riding, the springs used to lock in the visor started to stick, making it really difficult to pop the visor in and out.
And then one day, while I was riding, one of the base plates came off entirely. So my visor was only have attached to my helmet, and was just flapping in the wind at 60mph, until I was able to push it down so that the wind force would keep it on. But even then, I couldn't do head checks without it flapping open again. (this is still a criticism of these base plates)
I went and bought a new base plate set to replace the old one. It came with a full set of cheap plastic screws, which was great, since two of them snapped and one was stripped while I was attaching it. I've heard some people switch out the plastic screws for metal ones.
If I didn't need this specific base plate set for my helmet, I'd never get it again.

Fits a lot of HJC helmets
So I actually bought this to get a couple of the very short screws for an IS-MAX BT. It fell off a seat, and one of the screws holding the base plate/visor mounts in to the body of the helmet went to the land of the lost. The brass threads embedded in the helmet seem to be a little loose. A couple replacement screws, some LocTite, problem solved. If your HJC has those really short, giant-headed dual flatblade screws, this is the cheapest and most available way I found to replace them if they go missing.

In an effort to get a few more seasons out of my HJC I bought a new set of these brackets. They fit perfectly and came with all the hardware needed. Actually work better than the original when new.
