    Be careful with your Shoei Neotec 2 helmet

    Hi all,

    I unfortunately damaged my visor on my Shoei Neotec 2 helmet and tried to order a replacement visor only to find nobody has any stock until next year  :005: :087:

    So anyone who has a Shoei Neotec 2 helmet... be careful out there.

    Does make you think why a company as huge as Shoei has this supply issue  :084:

    It's a supply chain problem.

    If it's going in a container, then on a train/boat/train/truck, it's going to take a long time.

    I just had my 4-year old Jeep break down- replacement part was on backorder.  8-10 weeks out.

    I opted for the used replacement part.
    So many roads, so little time.

    Thanks for the warning. Now feeling a bit smug as I keep old visors "just in case" I need an emergency replacement.

    Same here.

    I have a well-used Neotech screen on hand in case i manage to break the new one I installed last year.

    Also, the screens are pricey.   :005:

    No sense tossing one that may be useable in a pinch.

    After failing to get a replacement visor for my sons two year old helmet I now get a 2nd visor when purchasing a new helmet. If you can't buy one when the helmet is first purchased that's a flag to avoid that model.

    These guys are showing them - nothing marked as out of stock, but of course that doesn't mean they are not but may be worth checking out as they may have stock

    Thanks Hawkeye.

    I suspect there are a few dealers who say they have stock, but don't.

    I had some hope as Infinity Motorcycles showed stock on their website with collection available the next day. I ordered 2 days ago.....and so far nothing but tumbleweed  :155:....something tells me they are telling porky pies and they don't have stock!

    Surprise surprise. This website allowed me to order a visor 2 days ago, promising next day collection. Visor didn't arrive  :005:

    Now the website says 'out of stock, call for availability'.

    I called and they don't know when they will get more stock  :084:

    That's the 2nd time I've placed an order with websites saying they had stock and they didn't, so had to request a refund  :009:

    Given up on Infinity Motorcycles  :033:
