Do you guys think that a heated visor is a good thing and is it worth the money to get one and are they difficult to hook up. [:)]

I honestly don't think heated visors are nessacary. I assume that you have a full face helmet. If you have a double layered shield you should be find. The heated visor is a waste of money IMO but its your choice. As long as its doubled you shouldn't have to be worried about fog. Also you can get a breath deflecter unless you helmet comes with it.

I have to disagree with Sled crew. The double layered shield is almost never enough. I like to ride with my shield cracked but when you need to put it down, you better have a heated shield. My stock double layered shield would fog within 5 minutes and then start to ice up. I would never ride again without one

Got one. they're worth it.The first time you ride when the air is moist and sticks to everything it will pay for itself. Keeps clear in freezing rain too.

Oh yes, they are worth every penny. I just got back from riding, and my shield was starting to fog up. Plugged it in, and presto, clear as day. They are pretty easy to install. If you have a battery, just hook the leads up to it, if not, find the power and ground wires for your sled and tap into it. I have done it both ways, my Polaris is tapped into an existing wire under the handlebar cover, and my Phazer has a battery, so I just connected it right to the battery. I think the battery connection is a much better way to go, my shield clears up instantly when I plug it in now. It used to take a bit to clear up with the Polaris.

I always had problems with my visor fogging and yes it was a double layer one. Bought a heated visor and now i dont have ne problems. Plus now i dont have to wear that annoying little shield that goes over your mouth and nose anymore.

Heated visor is well worth the money. I've been riding 35years and until I got my heated visor I always had a problem at times with fogging and now nothing, te visor is always clear. Hook your wires so that they come outunder you jacket it makes it easier when riding, esp with a group for your signals. Ride Safe!
