New Shoei, what's with this shield lever?

I see it locks the shield down, which is good. The manual refers to it as a Preset Lever, almost as if you can somehow set it up so that a flip of it will crack the visor open for you. How do you work this thing?

I never read the manual on mine, thought it was just a visor lock.

Maybe you can lock it in the cracked-open position or something.

If you lock it when the visor is open, it won't close all the way, so if that's what your going for...

Essentially what it's for is to crack your shield if it fogs up. Just twist the lever to crack open the shield and de-fog .

Really? Twisting it doesn't seem to do anything but lock/unlock it. That would be cool if I could set it up to crack the shield open.

Turn the lever down to crack it open. I don't use it much- maybe it's just that the seals are new, but it takes a lot of effort for it to work.
