It turns out the 2 hex bolts directly under the windscreen allow you to slightly bend down the plastic and slide it out. To do this, unscrew the 4 bolts on the windscreen and slide your hand under the windscreen all the way to the tip and press down the plastic behind the ecu and under the windscreen as shown in the images, releasing the clip and allowing you to slide it out. I also included some images of my plasti dip job on the bike!

The only downside I see from plasti dipping the pegs, is that it rubs off a bit from my shoes. I might end up painting them red, just because they look so good!

hey man quick question. I tried taking my windshield off today and for some reason I couldn't get it off . I took off the screws directly under the windshield and also the 4 screws on top but nothing . it was lose but it was still stuck on the tip that goes into the front plastic . did you have to pull back both the front plastic and a bit and the plastic where the gauge is ?

I just can't get the windscreen off. I tried putting my fingers and pushing in the same place as your photo. I have a 2015 cbr300r and i just can't get it off. I feel it could break if i continue. Help! Please make a video!

Once you have all the hex's out, pull the windscreen up hard. Then look at the bottom where the V is on the outside of the screen. As long as you're pulling up hard enough a black pin clip becomes visible, you need to use a thin slot screwdriver or a punch to push the black clip in as you wiggle around and up on the windscreen. It took me an hour of frustration to figure it out but I did it and have since painted my windscreen black.

What a pain in the ***. It only took me about 20 minutes thanks to your 'how to', but I still felt like I was ripping the bike apart! Lol
Hopefully it goes back in easier than coming out?

windscreen vinyl

I had a couple light swirl marks and figured if I painted the inside they would still show. Plus any rocks or whatever could still damage the outside of the windscreen. So i put super high gloss black vinyl on the outside. I think it came out really good and the gloss is so high it looks just as shiny (if not more in the sun) than the clear did.

where a windscreen has 3x mounting holes on each side, the top 2 are held by bolts that are easily visible/accessible.

The lower mounting hole on each side isn't visible when fitted - is there a hidden bolt on each side for this lower hole, or are they just more casually sitting in some plastic nipple on the bike that they can be wiggled out of? (I understand what's been said about the plastic tab at the very bottom)

Thanks

2015 CBR300R Windscreen Installation Steps
- Burn some incense in memory of Shichirō Honda
- Tools = Allen wrenches, 3, 4 & 5 mm
- Parts
Zero Gravity Corsa dark smoke Part # 24-444
Wellnut fasteners (4) Honda part # 90111-KW3-003 (or reuse old ones)
- Watch these excellent videos by Ahmet KAYALI a number of times (CBR250R)

- Remove 4 screws holding old windscreen - don’t lose washers
- Remove rear view mirrors
- Remove 4 screws from top of dashboard
- Gently push front cowling out from dashboard. There are 2 hooks in cowl that insert under lip in dash. Wiggle cowl and dash to separate and loosen gaps
- Wiggle windscreen back and forth sideways to get the 6 side tabs above the cowl
- Pull windscreen back to get front tab above cowl
- Push windscreen forward to separate slot inside back of tab from dash black finger

I had no luck pushing the front of the dash down to release finger from slot as others suggested. I polished new Z-G screen with Plexus and handled with cloth to avoid fingerprints. Insert new wellnuts in screen. New screen slides easily into place since it has no slot for finger. Make sure cowl hooks re-engage back of dash. I used blue thread locker on screws. It looks really great, reduces wind buffeting and glare from instruments.

Looks awesome! May be a dumb question, but I never worked with 'plastic dip'? My bike is the cherry red and I've been looking all over for a red windscreen. Is it too much to explain in a single message?

Mikal....Plasti Dip is a rubber type "paint". Once sprayed on it stays a pliable rubber and can be removed extremely easily by just pulling off. It's like having saran wrap/cling wrap stuck on and you just peel it off. It will not harm your bike/windshield at all. Just remove the windshield and spray it on until covered fully....Plasti Dip comes in all different colours including RED!! No need to buy a new windshield, just buy a $25 cdn can of Plasti Dip and your done!

I spent all morning trying to get the OEM out and all I got from it are bruised hands from trying to push down the plastic to release the tab. I have no patience left. Tried pulling up the windscreen and inserting a screwdriver into the hole where your fingers are supposed to be pressing down. Nothing.

Edit: I got it off. Pulled it up as much as possible, then pushed from the OUTSIDE with a screwdriver. Broke the tab off, but the OEM screen is 100% intact and the new screen went on without a hitch. Going back to OEM will be possible but it won't be latched in. Not sure why it needs to be, considering it has 4 screws holding it in place...
