    I'm finding it a bit difficult to get a tinted visor from the dealers here. Does anyone know if maybe an Arai or some other tinted visor will fit the BMW Enduro helmet?

    I was told they are on order but no delivery date that's why I hoped another might fit.

    Visors are very model and manufacturer specific. BMW does not make helmets. I think most of theirs are made by Uvex or Schuberth. It might be possible that who ever makes the BMW enduro helmet makes a self branded "sister" version that uses the same shield.

    FWIW the BMW helmets have not been available in the US since the late 80's. Too many lawyers.

    I just visited the BMW dealer in Hong Kong last week. I was thinking about getting an Enduro from them and bringing it back with me, but they only had two and one was too big and the other too samll. They were willing to order one (helmet) for me and ship it so I assume they would do the same (shield)for you.

    Good luck.
