HJC HJ-09 Pinlock Lens
Best way to get rid of fog
I live and ride in San Francisco. The city of fog. Before I got Pinlock, it was a constant ritual to wipe my visor and crack it open as I rode. Really annoying.
No longer. Pinlock is 100% fog free. Get it if you never want to deal with fog again.

Pin Lock system works awesome!
Purchased a light smoke pin lock insert for my pin lock ready shield and I have to say its really a awesome system. Pin lock is the real deal. If you don't have it consider spending the money it is worth the investment!

Love and hate
First off I'll say that it does what its supposed to, it prevents fog as its designed. But that's where the love stops. I knew of its design that the outer seam may be in the line of vision but I didn't realize till after fitting and using it that a lot of times its an annoyance. I guess not as much as having a fogged shield but the ratio of the shield being fogged to the constant fact that it hinders some vision kinda disappoints. Another note is reinforcing what is stated on the package and manual is clean with CARE. I used my finest lens cloth and wiped it down as recommended. Results left a ton of very fine scuffs, not really noticeable in real world use but wow its delicate.

This product works almost as well as I had hoped it would.
I bought the HJC HJ-09 Pinlock to add to my HJC IS-MAX-BT helmet because I was having trouble seeing on cold damp mornings as my face shield would fog up. The only way I could see was to leave the shield slightly open which wasn't real comfortable with the temperature in the thirties. I heard from a friend about the pinlock so I ordered one from Revzilla,
The install instructions were easy to follow and I had it in place in just a couple of minutes. When I put the helmet on I noticed that the top of the pinlock was sitting a bit low, just above my line of sight. It bothered me at first, but the more I rode the less I noticed that line and after a few rides it no longer is an issue.
On a couple of occasions I have noticed that moisture somehow gets between the shield and the pinlock seal and fogs the bottom of the shield. On two occasions I have had to remove the pinlock and wipe the shield dry. this hasn't caused me to have to stop my ride but has been a bit annoying.
Overall the pinlock has solved my fogging problem and I no longer have to ride with my shield slightly open on cold mornings. It's a good product.

Works as advertised
Great lens - no fog.
Really easy to install after watching the RevZilla video.
The light smoke tint is great, but does impair visibility at dusk and at night. I thought I could get away with the light tint for 24 hour use, but can't. Stick with clear if you'll be riding with it at night.

Have two of these, on for my clear shield and one for my dark smoke shield. So far they have performed very well. Fogging on the morning commute is nearly non-existent. Made a huge difference. Just make sure to read the directions when installing, takes a little bit of time on the first try, but after that it was no problem.
