I am now getting to the stage where the inside of my visor is becoming unusably dirty, but it's got an Anti-fog coating that the manual said not to touch or clean!
Soooo I'm not entirely sure what to do at this point; if I clean it the anti-fog will come off, if I buy a new visor it won't have antifog on it.
What's the best way to go about this?

Neither, that's the trouble. It's a coating on the visor, not an insert :/

Well it came on the visor itself, I didn't get any sprays or owt.
Google only comes up with temporary few-day application sprays... Idk

What's the exact wording in the manual ? Does it just say not to clean, or not to clean with certain products ?

I'd be tempted to wash it under warm running water (it must be waterproof at least) then leave to dry somewhere warm. If you have any oily/greasy deposits on it though, you're going to need some sort of soap to shift it. I clean my pinlock insert this way but with hand soap which I rub on with my fingers. I don't use a cloth of any kind since its made of a very soft plastic that scratches easily. After washing, I leave it on a radiator to dry.

Forgot to add, if the coating does get damaged, smear some clear liquid soap on the inside of the visor (you don't need much, just a drop). I found baby shampoo worked well when scuba diving since it doesn't sting your eyes.

That's the problem- I've just checked the manual I thought it was in, but I can't find any reference to the anti fog... It must have been on the visor sticker itself, which is now long gone :(

I've been thinking I might just wash it with soap, have a gentle go with a sponge in any places that are really greasy and leave it to dry like you say.
I'd much rather lose the anti-fog coating than be riding with this thing as it any longer.

Just rub the soap in with your fingers under a running tap, they're less likely to scratch the coating than a sponge and you can feel any bits of dirt rather than scratch them around all over the visor.

Good point, alright!
It will go on the TDL. Cheers Codey!
