HJC does not recommend cleaning any visor with spray-on type chemical cleaners. A reaction between a visor and a cleaning chemical is possible, resulting in haze build-up and distortion. HJC recommends washing the visor with warm water and a soft cloth only. We also recommend cleaning the visor as soon as possible after dirt and debris have accumulated. Do not let debris sit on the visor for an extended period of time. If debris has accumulated over time, it is recommended to clean the visor in several applications. This allows the debris to break down with every application. Excessive rubbing can lead to scratching as the hard debris can act as a scuffing agent. The same can occur if low-grade rigid paper towels are used.
Aftermarket anti-fog inserts such as Fog City and HJTech Anti-Fog can work very well with HJC flat (2D) visor. These inserts are not recommended for use with standard HJC 3 dimensional (3D) visor due to their double curvature shape which could cause a distortion of vision. Follow the installation instructions diligently.
RAIN-X & OTHER PRODUCTS
Applying Rain-X or other water dispersing type chemicals work well on HJC visors (except RST mirrored shields) if applied on the new visors and if the chemical companies’ directions are followed diligently. Always use extremely soft and clean clothes for applications.
HJC ANTI-FOG TREATED VISOR (HJ-09)
HJC’s anti-fog treated visors are anti-fog coated both on the inside and hard coated outside. When first using the anti-fog HJ-09, you must activate the anti-fog by breathing directly on to the visors interior surface. The visor will partially fog, once the fog clears it is activated. You will notice if you breathe on the visors again, it remains fog free. All anti-fog coatings are a chemical treatment and will wear off in time.
2D / 3D VISORS (WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE)
2D visors are primarily used for racing purposes as they only have a single horizontal curvature, allowing tear-off films to be stretched across the main surface without warping. The more standard 3D visor has both horizontal and vertical curvatures.
TEAR-OFF "RACING" FILMS
HJC recommends Paulson TA-1, Racing Optics 7201, or Rose Racing 1018’s. Using more than 3 tear-offs might cause visual distortion.
