A damaged or scratched face shield can create a hazardous situation for a motorcyclist wearing an HJC CL-Max modular helmet. While a single small scratch may amount to little more than a minor nuisance, larger scratches or blemishes can obstruct the wearer's vision. Replacing a face shield on a CL-Max helmet can be accomplished without the aid of tools, thanks to HJC's quick-release ratcheting shield lock mechanisms. These mechanisms are integrated into the face shield's base plates on both sides of the helmet and are controlled by a pair of gray locking arms.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Set the helmet on a clean table, facing the face shield towards you. Open the face shield completely.

  2. 2

    Pull the gray locking levers on the bottom of the shield lock mechanisms forward to unlock the face shield. These are located on both sides of the helmet.

  3. 3

    Grasp the base of the face shield and pull it out of the shield lock mechanisms on both sides of the helmet. Set the face shield aside.

  4. 4

    Place the new face shield over the shield lock mechanisms in an approximation of the fully-opened position. Slide the upper edges of the notches on the base of the face shield into the shield lock mechanisms.

  5. 5

    Press the face shield's base into the shield lock mechanisms until the locking arms lock into place.

  6. 6

    Lower the face shield. Check that the locking arms have retracted to the rear of the shield lock mechanism if the face shield is difficult to close.

Tips and warnings

  • Practice replacing and installing the face shield until you feel comfortable with the process.
  • Do not force the face shield to close. If the face shield is difficult to close, check that it is properly inserted into the shield lock mechanisms.
