Looks great. If I did this I'm thinking I'd just paint the outside recessed area black since it looks very difficult to get the tint to stick there and lay flat.

There's one on Ebay US right now. Problem is it's still attached to a helmet, it's a size S, and it's $200.

The visors alone rarely come up on Ebay, much less tinted ones. Best case scenario is to wait until a helmet your size with a tinted visor already installed comes up, buy it, and then just have an extra helmet.

I've seen black helmets with clear visors sell for $50-100, but black helmets with tinted visors sell for $100-200. When you look at those numbers, you'll realize that a tinted visor is worth as much or more than the rest of the helmet, so even if someone did have a spare, it wouldn't be cheap.

I have a black helmet with black visor size M that I would let go for $200,- + shipping.

Greetings Guido

Glad Guido was able to hook you up. I remember that 80skid.com sold Ghiblis for a while in red, blue, and white, repainted black, and with clear visors for $200, and he eventually sold all of them (or almost all) at that price. So a molded black (not repainted) helmet with a a tinted visor at $200 is a good deal.

I recorded in the summer with 80skid.com contact. He has no a tinted visor more. Then I give him the helmet with a clear visor bought which I have toned up with the film.

Infinitely many thanks to Guido for the tinted visor
