    Unhappy Schuberth C4 Visor Misting

    Got a new Schuberth C4 helmet but the "pinlock" it comes fitted with doesn't seem to fit. I have turned the pins to put max and re seated it but it still has a 5mm gap at the bottom of the visor. Anybody sorted this?

    Thanks for any advice.

    It's a common problem.

    I've just had my visor/pinlock replaced.Not tried it yet but seems to fit perfectly.Will find out as off to Spain tomorrow.

    Mines 100% perfect , if it wasn't I'd ship it back to the vendor before venting here.

    Red face Sorted..

    Much fiddling about then tried it right up near the top of the visor and bingo, now have a seal. Visor now functions properly, no misting up. Why do Shuberth ship them like this? i.e. not fitted properly! Nothing to do with Brexit lol?

    Had the same recently. Bottom part of the visor was misted and when I tried to clean it found it was between the 2 layers. Really annoying. Had to stop, fiddle about a bit, remove the condensation and make sure the fit was snug again.

    Bummer dude. Didn't buy from Pete as I wanted it as early as possible. Does anyone happen to know whether there are Schuberth service centres or anything like that I (we) could go to?

    It's a rubbish lid. Been really disappointed with mine. It mists up even when it's not cold, it's Really creaky as well under any flexing. Air flow is quite poor. Hurts my ears even though it's a size up. Got the neotec back out. My mate bought a c4 as well and he has the same issues

    Used mine all last week in wettest Wales through many heavy downpours. No probs at all.

    What is it with the Schuberth quality control that some are fine, others pants.
