How many people ride with a heated shield. Thinking about getting one just want to know if they are the answer. Let me know what you think. My dual pane shield fogs up all the time.

I started using a heated shield in 2000, haven't been out much the last few years, but I will never ride without one again.

ONLY USED THE SHIELD ONE OR TWO TIMES BUT ITS GOOD BACKUP.

-20 this weekend on the northshore in MN (not including wind chill) and it was mt first time with a heated shield. Well worth the investment. I felt bad for the others pulled over on the side of the trail scraping their lenses. I won't be without it again!

I have a Polaris modular helmet. Is a heat shield something I can add to this helmet or do I have to buy a new helmet?

Heated shields are add ons and I'm sure you can get one for your Polaris Mod. I have one for my Cat helmet and my wife has one on her HJC. Contact your dealer. Should be $60-80. Check eBay too. There are a bunch on there.



As for me, I was the first in my group to try one in 99. Everyone else had them the NEXT ride. Won't ride without one again.

They are even pretty nice for warmer/marginal temps with guys that sweat a lot. One of our gang finally switched after fogging for years. He would constantly be opening and closing the shield before the switch. I like the heated shield much more with glasses. I looked at all kinds of helmet and goggle combos and the heated shield is less work to prevent the fogging on glasses.

They come with the wiring. You just have to tap 12v somewhere. Some sleds have a plug ready for them. Not much in the way of modification. As far as how they connect, they have a springy cord that connects the shield to the plug that you wire to your sled.

I use mine when the temperature is about 15 degrees or lower. Always keeps my shield from icing up, it doesn't keep it from fogging up 100% of the time, but close to it. It's still definetly well worth the money.

How are the heated shields powered? Are there any modifications I would have to make to my 2006 Switchback 600?[/b]
It's very easy on the '06 Switchback 600...there is an unused wire under your handlebar cover that you can tap into for power.
