    btw, has anyone noticed any 'difficulty' flipping the front? I do deliveries all day every day and 2 weeks in feel that the smoothness is gone and some strength needs applying. What should i try, wd40 or silicone spray?

    I lost a screw and the outer cap today. I thought they were tight. Guess I'll see what they say on Monday.

    Took the moving elements apart, since the flip-up has been opening/closing with some force, sprayed silicone on and around rotating parts and wd40 on the locking mechanism. Now it opens/closes better, will report in a week on the result. Changed the washer for the lost bolt, now seems to hold better.

    THANK YOU to all regarding the loosening visor bolts. Just a one day off road/on road ride and one was ready to fall out. There does not seem to be much thread engagement into the pivot bolt threads. Loctite 243 (blue) is a MUST.
    Aside from that what a fantastic ADV Helmet. Even at speed on the road the visor does not drag much at all. My previous AFX did not flow as well.
    Fitment is grand after installing one size larger cheek pads. I do not use this term lightly, especially with inanimate objects but I love the flip visor. Shady trail? flip it up, scorching Sun? flip it down. The visor works fine for me. First modular Helmet, great to open up while stopped. Managed a hot all day ride in Missouri, one of the "Swinging Bridges" along a trail. It's a keeper!

    I noticed yesterday that the hi-vis stripes on my Neocon are already fading significantly. So far just on the visor, but kind of annoying on a helmet that has less than 100 hours of use on it...

    I had the exact same issue. Almost lost it passing a truck. I called scorpion and they are sending me new updates bolts with a new "spring washer". I just bought mine about two months ago, so it must be a brand new fix. I love the helmet overall though. Way more features than you can find for $300 in other brands. Also really quiet for me, i think how well it fits makes a difference there.

    I should add, they are sending the new bolts(and a couple extra just in case) for free no questions asked. So I can't really complain about the service.

    Came back from a trip and found a box from Scorpion. Turned out they changed the design of the screws- the new one on the left has a friction (not sure if this is a correct term) washer, and the plastic one is different. The new screw feels way more secure.
    Tkach, they did include an extra screw with the package, but it came without the plastic washer. I don't have anyone going to Moscow, I can ship the screw if you want it.

    Thanks for the offer, i'll ask a friend in DC if she's planning on visiting any time soon. If she is planning, then tell what the postage would be and i'll paypal you. Thanks again.

    Add me to the list of those losing a pivot screw. I noticed the peak wobbling on the freeway this morning, luckily close to work. Pulled into the garage and could tell right away I lost the screw when lifting the chin bar. Called Scorpion right at 8am, and before I could explain my situation, the sweet girl offered to send me a new set free of charge. I was going to use locktite on the new set, but sounds like Scorpion had made a fix to prevent this. Great customer service from Scorpion, I must say. Now to locate some duct tape so I can secure the thing for my ride home!:lol3

    Hmmm...
    My screws don't have any washers, or wave washers, and they hold tight, so far.

    As a fan of Scorpion's helmets but not giant logos, I can tell you that big lumpy "S" thing on the front comes right off, it's held with double stick tape.

    High-vis pigments tend to be UV-sensitive. And the ones that are more stable cost more...

    can you tell if removing it reduces any wind noise?

    It does ok - not great but better than my previous two modulars (one of which was a Scorpion as well). There is also a big intake vent on the chinbar you can see here (stolen pic from a few posts up)

    I find that works great on a non faired bike, but doesn't do much on something like the LT we're touring on right now. The top vent works even with the fairing, but it does produce a very noticeable sound :)

    Open your visor to the first detent. If that's not enough air for you, maybe take the visor off?
