    I see the vault has a couple iridium repalcement lenses for $30 and I was thinking of replacing the lenses on my Moto GP pair. I have repalced leneses in my other pairs but never in a metal pair and I am wondering if the repalcement is difficult or are there any issues?

    Also, the choices of lenses are the ice iridium and the titanium iridium, and the picture of the titanium looks much like chrome, but I was wondering what people think of titanium leses and if they are badass or not.

    Thanks!

    Id get both lenses for that Price. Since the GP's have blue on the frame the Ice should look sweet.

    Titanium is a brown lens with a chrome iridium I think. Not a dark iridium, though.

    Swapping lenses in a metal frame usually requires removing a screw holding the orbital together.

    Thanks guys. I can do screw removal so that should work great.

    There is no screw on Plaintiffs.

    The lenses just pop out from the back as usual. Here's a link to Walleva lens changing video on YouTube for the Plaintiffs

    Only thing to be careful of is warping the frames.

    You really shouldn't pop out plaintiff lenses like that, take the extra minute to take out the one screw on each orbital.

    Got to apologise because I was wrong. I hadn't even noticed the screw on the orbital. I'd always thought it was part of the hinge mechanism.

    Definitely loosen that first to relieve the stress on the frame.
