Did it. I love it, but there is one problem with the Bell's transitions lens so far... it's that the anti-fog doesn't work as well as the clear and smoked lenses that they sell and as the temps are dropping, this is becoming so much of a problem that I am finding myself swapping out for the stock shield. Still, it's a great product.

Have you tried a breath box? I tried a bunch of different anti-fog sprays and nothing worked real well for me. Finally I bought a breath box, and fog on the inside of my visor is a thing of the past. On the downside, I don't like the feeling of the breath box touching my nose and cheeks, but it beats having a fogged visor. I have a velcro one that is easily removable, so it stays off during the warm weather.

I find the need to keep the lid cracked until about 10 minutes into the ride in the morning, then it is fine (probably how long it takes the visor to cool through completely)
