    THH is a Taiwanese company and TIH is the Indian name for the same brand where they are manufactured in India (Maharashtra). But their low end stuffs more or less are close to Cross helmets.

    First off, I'd like to kick your arse for going for a bucket as opposed to a rather proper full face helmet. There is only one solution, and that is to throw that helmet away and get yourself a proper full face helmet.

    Now to the real problem, this is where most of us become DEXTER so to speak, they just go to a shop, get something called a visor, and then use it and voila you're set. But a helmet visor is a technology in and of itself as the very shell itself. Cheap, replaceable plastic serve no real purpose as such, worse, they can even hamper your vision. My advice would be, if you face glaring issues, best idea would be go chuck that visor away and get yourself a good goggle, at least it looks good and protects your eyes for the time being.

    And there are MX goggles available in PlanetDSG.com and are start at 500-600 rupees .

    And the guy lived happily ever after and rode motorcycles and watched sport on a big screen TV, went fishing and surfing, and played golf a lot, and drank beer and scotch and had tons of money in the bank and left the toilet seat up and farted whenever he wanted.

    There are too many "posers" who would buy that plastic bucket
    But honestly, why sell it, don't jeopardize the buyer's life. Rather save and get a full face helmet.

    P.S : Even googling "helmets xbhp" gives link to this thread

    Relax. You need not sell the helmet, unless one is dumb enough to go for used that too a MX helmet. Perhaps keep it for standby use, just in case if you need it. But I'd suggest you get a good helmet or start saving it for now. In the meanwhile keep using your helmet. It's good to know that you've realized your mistake far too sooner than most. So kudos for that.

    NO! Never ever oil the mechanism as such as excess oil tends to stain or overtime reduce the visor's abilities. The best idea would be use a *VERY LITTLE* vaseline on those rollers at the side of the pinion mechanism and see how it fares. I did the same to my Vega Formula HP too, it made this creaky noise, so used it and it disappeared. But anything liquid is a big NO NO!

    Absolutely outstanding! I think it surpasses DOT certification. I can also wear it as an accessory for parties on Saturday nights.
