    Where can I buy a replacement bolt for a troy lee helmet?

    So a while back I lost one of my visor bolts to my troy lee helmet. I'm pretty sure I went OTB at some point and knocked it out. I'd like to try and get another bolt so my visor isn't crooked but don't know where to look. Any help would be great.

    I once had a slow crashed in my Axo MX helmet and knocked the visor off on some guy's calf. I hit up my local motorbike shop (Blackfoot Motorsports), and they dragged out a shoe box FULL of all sorts of different visor bolts. The guy said just grab what you need, no charge. I got lucky and actually found a direct replacement.

    Just an idea, but if a wreck managed to rip a bolt out of your helmet don't you think the threads would be stripped in the helmet? Would a new bolt necessarily provide the same function as the would have before? Not trying to be a debbie downer, this is a legit question on my behalf because anytime I've done something similar the holes ended up stripped so I used a different bolt and a nut to on my helmet.

    If you want something that works and don't care about aesthetics just take your helmet to a hardware store and match up a bolt. Any decent hardware store surely has the correct size/thread bolt. It will cost you about 15 cents.

    Most helmets I've owned use plastic bolts to hold the visors on. When you crash, the bolt simply breaks apart, not doing any damage to the helmet or visor. If you stick a steel bolt in there, you can guarantee the bolt with never be the part that breaks in a crash...

    Hmm, good point. Maybe that's why my visor has been broken/glued together numerous times
