    Dash visibility

    Just thought I'd share that if your visor is too dark you can't see the screen at all. So save yourself some money if track riding. Visors for my lid are £99 so ain't cheap. Where the background is black is probably the main cause.
    I'm going to have to try a smoke visor.
    I've had to fit my clear one on on track as can't see it.

    Interesting - is the visor polarised? Because that's always an issue for not being able to view digital displays...

    No it's a shark race r pro visor. Jet black. Also it must have a very large reserve tank. I'm barely getting 2 sessions in before the warning takes over the dash and again that's all you see.. So now topping up every session.

    Could be the screen cover it's in but it's fine till I look through the lid

    This, albeit with a dark visor on an Arai helmet. No problems at all.

    Mine’s been fine with Arai dark visor as Schuey’s said. There’s certainly no missing the low fuel warning flag, clearly we need to know but the presentation’s dammed annoying in my book.

    Re: Dash visibility

    To confirm, you're in *Race Pro* mode on the dash and the fuel warning obliterates the view still yeah?
    That seems like a software fail to me. I'd deffo feature request that's disabled in Race Pro.
