If not you can get some rubber ones at Ace and it will cure it.

I have the Trekker and I've been trying to get a mirrored or smoked shield for it for the sun. Everyone online is out of them. Apparently Fly needs to produce more. Chaparral MS has one on order for me but I'm curious if anyone has heard an update on replacement shields?

Ok. This is the info I got. No tinted shields till June it looks like.

Hello Michael,

Thank you for contacting FLY Racing. Unfortunately we sold thru all of the tinted shields that we had in stock. Yes we do have more on order the ETA Date that we have from the manufacture is 06-20-12 mid June.

The only replacement shields that we currently have available is the Clear Shield.

I hope this helps.

Best Regards, Doug Downing Motorcycle / ATV Tech Support

Guess I got lucky with Motorcycle Superstore, I just got a replacement clear and a dark smoke for mine about two weeks ago...

Just double checked their website and sure enough...not available

The AFX FX-39 shields are exactly the same, and are widely available in light smoke, dark smoke, and mirror.

Reviving from the dead. Ordered the Fly and will be returning it due to a few issues...
  1. The neck strap sits right above the Adam's apple for me
  2. Medium fit is tight enough to give me a solid headache
  3. Lens stays loose
  4. Way too much airflow in the eyes (killin my contacts)
  5. Sun shield lifts head all over the place at less than 60mph
  6. No quick way to take lens off for cleaning/dust

I was hoping to be able to use this on the TAT, but its looking more and more like I'll just be using my MX helmet, though I really don't want to.

Which model? I was looking at the AX8, but Revzilla was out of stock (cheapest price around at 229$)

Have a Fly Trekker, bought it for my trip to Vietnam last fall. Find that its one of the most comfortable I have owned and definitely the best value in a helmet. Was going to by a new street helmet but it works really we while riding my connie, so I think will just keep using it.

So if it fits your head, its a good choice. Some of the concerns that have been mention here are valid. Little funky with sunglasses, but that is easy top get use to. The visor is either an open or closed the first detent is right in the middle of my vision. But this is minor for me, for others it might be a problem. But for the money its hard to complain.

Does anyone leave their neck strap kind of loose on Fly? I can't figure out how this thing wouldn't choke EVERYONE that put this on.

I just got the AFX39 in medium and its going back....way too tight...as one poster put it, my nose hits the front of the helmet. Exchanging it for a large. Hopefully that will work out better.

Don't go by their size chart...by their chart I fit clearly in the medium range but it was ridiculously tight.
