First I tried various DIY kits for windshield repair. Well I could repair some cracks, but they were still visible. Because they were not repaired immediately after the impact occurred the dust penetrated into the cracks and made the repair impossible. Besides a few tiny cracks there was a lot of very small stone chips that were visible under certain lighting conditions, making the visibility worse. The only real option was the complete windshield replacement.
Being on budget the genuine Honda windshield was far from reaching. But I could get a hold of windshield from Pilkington for 1/3 of the OEM price, 130 Eur. Built with a reasonable quality, the weight difference is minuscule. The OEM Asahi brand windshield is 11.0 kg and the Pilkington is 12.2 kg.
