OK....I went and bought a new helmet (thanks for the screaming good deal Kelowna Yamaha), but I need help. How do you get the price sticker off and all the goo too? ...With out destroying the glossy finish of the helmet?
One more question for those using Icon helmets.... Which visor colour do you find the best for full sun summer riding?
Thanks, Gord.

depends on the sticker. the paper ones peel off as much as you can, sometimes a hairdryer helps soften the glue, then try wd40, paint thinner,or laquer thinner as the last resort. then polish it up with a good auto wax.

you really dont want to put anthing on the helmet that will damage or break down the helmet material.

theres a product called glue be gone or something like that at crappy tire. havent tried it , since i have had sucsess with the above.

Before I tried solvent I would try something oil based ... butter or marg often work and won't hurt the finish.

Well problem solved. Thanks for all the input,but none of your solutions worked.
I ended up using a little can of eye glass cleaner. "See-Spray" by Amway(really weird) worked instantly. Because it is made for polycarbinate glasses it didn't hurt the finish of the glossy helmet at all...one spray, two wipes with a paper towel and it was gone...all traces of the horrible sticker goo. Cool.

Thanks again, Gord.

Glad to hear you got it off. As for visors, I just went with a dark smoke for my Shoei.

I wear glasses and can't wear sun glasses under the visor. The chrome visor would match my helmet the best (Icon Hooligan chrome with flames). Glad to hear that it works well in most summer conditions.

I've got the silver mirrored one for my Icon Hooligan Mainframe. Its great in the sun, but as everyone says, try not to get caught after dark with it!

How about the sun shade (split. top dark just like in a cage) visor ? Seems like they would tear off at speed.
