I purchased this Pinlock compatible shield to replace the standard shield that came with my H-D branded helmet (made by HJC). It fit perfectly and mated easily with the companion HJ-09 Pinlock insert anti-fog lens. The lens has very good optical quality and seems reasonably scratch resistant. Shipping was easy and surprisingly fast to Alaska. I recommend this product with the Pinlock insert.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this helmet as the manufacturer's twin to the Harley-Davidson top-of-the-line FXRG modular, which lists for over $100 more and does not include the pin-lock system. The helmet is lighter, quieter, and fits my long oval head better than my previous two Harley-branded modular helmets built by HJC. I did need one size larger that my head circumference would indicate to accommodate my long oval head. It still leaves a slight horizontal imprint on my forehead from the liner seam stitching after long rides, but not as bad as other helmets I have worn. I wear it without the chin skirt to reduce fogging of my glasses in the cold/damp climate where I ride. If I had a complaint, it is that this helmet is not advertised as not being suitable to accept an internal communications system. Once I looked at the extensive mods and liner damage that would be required, I decided to sacrifice having a communications system in favor of a lighter helmet that is more comfortable while wearing glasses on long road trips.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I bought this helmet primarily for the sun visor feature, which was a welcome upgrade from my original modular. I had to buy a 2XL, which is one size above the size table recommendation, but I still have fitment issues. The sun visor knocks my glasses when lowering in place unless I press the shell forward. The chin bar is very close to my chin - I can hit it by moving my jaw forward - so there is no room to position at a boom microphone. I also had to deepen the speaker recesses so that my slim profile speakers didn't press into my earlobes. Without the pin lock upgrade, this helmet fogs up quickly, particularly when stopped, so I almost always ride with the shield cracked open or full up. Overall, the helmet is solidly designed and fine for my short commutes, but not comfortable on a long oval head for long rides.
Yes, I recommend this product.
