The SH300 comes without a screen. It's fine as it is, but you get the obvious wind push on your torso, bugs on your visor and wet when it rains.

SH300 screens are cheap, but you generally have to fit the screen brackets that come with the Honda screen, and as far as I'm aware you can only buy the brackets with the standard Honda screen.

When I bought my SH300 I ordered the Honda screen kit (which comes with the brackets and a pair of clear plastic hand guards) and the Givi short screen.

Fitting the brackets was very easy once someone had send me the 4-page fitting instructions. Fitting requires removal of some plastics, and temporarily moving the light/display unit out of the way. There are two blanking plates to remove, which reveal the mounting holes for the brackets which then simply screw into place.

The Givi screen is thicker perspex than the Honda screen. It's nicely finished. I fitted it with the intention of running it year-round. It sits below helmet-height so keeps your torso dry and the wind pressure off your body, and worked well for me.

Now that it's getting cold I thought I'd swap it for the Honda screen, which is huge. Ignoring the ugly aesthetics, it's a revelation. No wind or rain on the helmet, and no wind noise around the helmet. It's great. You look through rather than over it, but I use Nikwax Visor Proof on it, so rain beads off. I've never had a problem with visibility through it. It's that quiet that you can hear the quietest of noises from the scoot. And it's fine at motorway speeds. I've not noticed a dip in MPG either. I can see it getting warm in the summer, so once we're through the winter I'll stick the Givi screen back on.

Yeah, both the Givi screens bolt onto the Honda brackets.

making it easier to interchange. My puig is ok but I must admit to preferring the honda (riot shield) screen. Think it'll be on my winter shopping list. :)

Guys I too have the OEM screen and one made by fabbri in Italy - both use the OEM brackets - the huge Honda screen was useless in the inclement scottish weather - it prevented air circulation around my visor and I couldn’t see a thing in wet conditions - I’m sure horobags had similar problems with the OEM screen on his previous sh300i - I think he had it cut down in size

I think I've only had my visor down a couple of times since I fitted the large screen. So much so that I'd buy an open-face helmet if I wasn't concerned about coming off and landing on my face. It seems that the routine where they're built and ridden most is to wear normal clothes and an open-face helmet.
