Arai XD4 chin curtain

I bought an Arai XD4 last year and I really love it, except for one thing - it doesn't have a chin curtain. The lack of a chin curtain made using Siri on my iPhone through a Sena SMH10 difficult at speed as there was too much wind noise. Additionally, the lack of a chin curtain in cool/cold weather made it a bit uncomfortable.

I looked around a bunch to see if anyone else solved this problem with the XD4. I found one reference where someone put a Shoei chin curtain on an Arai XD3. I bought a chin curtain for Shoei X-12 and figure I'd give it a try as it was pretty inexpensive.

I got the Shoei chin curtain today. It was easy to install and a test ride (48 degrees outside) confirmed it made a big difference in the amount of wind entering the helmet. Here's a picture of it installed:

good idea! I also have an rf1100 and an xd4. the xd4 flip down curtain leaves some to be desired.
I may have to do this.

Revzilla, but lots of the online stores have them. Less than $10.
