Hey Guys,
So I picked up a NOS bubble shield to go along with my bronze Fulmer bubble shield (since I can't see at night with the bronze one). However, when I opened up the package I got a strong odor of well I guess plastic, it stinks! Either way I washed it with dish soap and it cut the smell some but I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to take the smell out completely. I'm hoping just being out in the air will cure it eventually.

Here's a pic of my new shield:

Don't set it in the sun. It'll craze the plastic.
I've heard a lot of guys complain that the bubble sheild stink. The only thing that you can do is leave it out and let it gas off.

thanks guys, as i figured. I don't do a ton of night riding so hopefully it'll air out. kinda smells like an old chemical filled library death. If that makes sense.

I bought 1 as well for my Bucco helmet and I let it sit outside for months and no matter what I did i could not get rid of that smell, I eventually threw it away. I've been afraid to buy another one because of that smell.

Buy a new fulmer bubble. My bronze one is a fulmer, I think I paid around $22 locally.

honestly poor coffee on it and then wash it a few minutes later...coffee works like activated charcoal and absorbs smells...just like if your basement floods brew a pot of coffee down there to get the mildew smell out.

I might but I was looking for the older 5 snap version like I had only without the smell.

Rugby: ooh coffee huh?! I guess I'll have to try that, I'm not a coffee drinker and don't have a coffee maker I guess I might have to try this at work! I love my 3/4, plus it isn't too thick so it doesn't make me look like a p3nis head. The bubble though makes me look like I'm going to dive the deep sea :)

alhall: 5 snap, oohhh, hmm I haven't seen a 5 snap, but then again I've only been looking for the 3 snappers. I got my fulmer shield at the local Triumph dealer.
