    Anybody come across this for cleaning seals on visor. I saw this, or I think I did, but can't remember where or what.

    It's meant to keep seals flexible.

    when you buy a Shoei and possibly others you get a small bottle of silicon seal 'oil',
    maybe that's what you've seen.

    AND while checking, I also spotted another little bottle which turns out to be a water repellent for the actual visor!!
    Didn't know that was there, I'll have to give that a try. :)

    I have never seen a silicone seal.

    I used to have a plastic whale when I was a kid though.

    I was going to say lid but I knew it would tickle someone!

    Aria come with the little bottle of silicon oil.

    But I really was being (mostly) serious. Any cheap furniture polish with silicon can be used. Squirt it one the moving side bits, inside/outside and use a finger to ensure even coating.

    I found it works just as well.

    Edited to add, if you wanted to use on the rubbery top/bottom seals on the lid itself then squirt it onto your fingers first and rub it along the seals.

    Halfords sell silicone spray with PTFE which will do the job. It is used on car door and window rubbers, cleans and lubs.
    I got it for the wife's car, its a convertible and all the rubber on the roof section has to be treated regularly.
