Anyone having a problem with their speedo fogging up?
Anyone else having problems with their speedometer fogging up? I had it happen a couple of times last season when I was at our cottaqe and my 2010 XR had to be left outside under a bike cover. It rained allot, and when the sun finally came out the speedo fogged up; along either side, top and bottom, but not across the entire surface. It eventually evaporated when left in the sun. Victory eventually replaced the speedo after first sending a broken one, and then sending one in miles per hour rather than kilometers. However, it happened again this spring with the new speedo. I took pictures and sent them to the dealer who passed them on to mother Victory. Victory now claims this will happen under certain weather conditions. I say this is BS! Everyone knows that moisture and electronics don't mix, and from my perspective this is a case of poor worksmanship and Victory trying to side step responsibility. My bike is stored in a completely dry,heated and insulated bike garage, and the tach, which sits next to the speedo and was subjected to the same conditions, was crystal clear. Anyone having the same problem or have any thoughts?
