Arai XD3 Shield's

Is there a no fog shield available for the XD3. I have a brand new XD3 with a pin lock, but still fogs up more then I like.

If it fogs with a pinlock, something isn't right.

1. make sure the gasket is sealed the whole way around. Turn the pins if needed to make it fit better.

2. Is it on the inside or outside? I thought mine was fogging but it was just on the outside of the shield. The new shield doesn't shed the mist the same as the older ones

I never get fog in mine. When I first received the pinlock visor the pins were way off. Make sure the pins are where the insert is seating properly and sealed all the way around.

I also have Raincoat from Motosolutions on the outside maybe that is helping and I just don't know.

Since I just got this thing, maybe I don't know what I'm looking at. So, lets clear this up. When you say pin lock, I'm thinking its the little black thumb nob on the left side of the shield with a small pin on the inside that locks it down. Is this right? Theres nothing else on the shield but that. Or do I just have a regular shield.

Regular shield.

Pinlock has two pins, one on each side that are used to hold another insert of plastic film that fits between them, and lays on the interior surface of the shield..

Here is an example

You can purchase it directly from Arai on their website. Shield is 50$ (ish), and the insert is 30$ (ish)


Go to the accesories... LINK

Yep you have a regular shield go buy the pinlock from the Arai website. Also, I bought the dark smoke insert for day use and clear insert for night riding. Make sure you buy the XD3 visor and inserts.

Visor part #1427
Inserts part #'s 1427-(whichever color you choose.

I'm hooked on the amber insert.

It really helps with contrast and riding through trees where you go from shade to sun to shade.

Had an amber insert on my Corsair RX7 and love it. Since I bought the GSA, I also bought an Arai XD3. Love it. Pity we can't get the pinlock visors in Australia. The XD3 fogs up bad!

Any tricks for changing the inserts without removing the visor? It was a pain in the A** installing it in the first place!

You have to remove the visor, but getting the insert in should be easy.

Basically fit the first tab, run the insert along the visor as long as possible, then flex into an S shape and fit the second tap. Then flatten the visor and push in on the insert until it drops into place.

I was surprised how much flex the sheild has. I lay mine out almost completely flat to seat the insert.
