HJC HJ-09 Pinlock Lens Insert
Works Like It's Supposed To
Bought this for my girlfriend who had recently started riding. It fit in fine and has worked just as advertised. No more fog! I highly recommend pinlocks if you are tired of foggy visors. Especially in places like the Bay Area where it gets cold enough to fog, but not cold enough to deter us from riding. It can be a little pricey but at least it's a permanent solution.
Try to be gentle when putting it on or taking it off so you don't break the part where it clips onto the visor.
Also, when we put it on, we had a portion at the top of the visor that was kind of touching the pinlock so it looked like a bubble. My girlfriend can't see it while wearing the helmet though since it's at the very top.

Very few products work as described. This one just works perfect. -Avi Moyal

Wow. First time I've used pinlock inserts and they are amazing. I ride all year and of course during winter it is usually in chilly and sometimes damp conditions. I have yet to fog up my faceshield. They work, period.

Installed on a Sy Max III helmet. Haven't tested on a ride but did test it in my house. It used to be if I had my helmet closed and wasn't moving at 30mph+ it would immediately start fogging. Threw my helmet on, closed the visor and just started to breathe, the visor stayed perfectly clear this time. I can only hope that it holds up over time, now just to figure out how to keep my glasses unfogged.

Worked at first.
After a few months the insert started fogging up. I don't mean between the visor and the insert, I mean the insert itself. If I have to buy a new one every few months I'll just stick to the anti fog treatments for my visor, it'll be cheaper.

Pin lock works great
I ordered the light smoke pinlock for my HJC and i like the light being cut down. I wore at night and it really helped with the car lights which can be a bit blinding without the help of the shield. I know...technically not supposed to use at night but especially in high lit areas its a big help to me. Anti fog works well so far. Had a little moisture inside it after a few days on the edges but removing and a wipe down do the trip. Wish it was cheaper for a piece of plastic and rubber but it does a nice job keeping me from fogging and squinting during sun light hours.

It was easy to install. Got it and then the bike went in the shop.... Will have to see how it does in COLDER weather when I get the bike back..
