Default Radio Condensation CCT 2012

I have had condensation in the Radio LED face plate a couple of times after washing the bike.

My concerns are that this might cause audio faliure down the track as ANY internal moisture cant be good.

I have read previously others have had the condensation issue, can you tell me..

Has it been replaced under warranty?

Did Victory insist on pulling the headset out and have it sent to head office for inspection, prior to replacement?

Thanks for any feedback

If you are still under warranty, get it replaced. No excuse for the build on these bikes. XCT electrics seem fragile. It seems the folks that made them aren't privvy to the fact they will actually be ridden in other than 65-85 degree, sunny day conditions.
Things like this are why mine is very close to being traded on something less needy. Sad, it is a great rider, but has issues in the electrical areas.

My 2013 XCT did it too. I had the radio unit replaced under warranty at no cost. The steaming of the glass will eventually leave a stain that will be noticable.

My 2010 does it occasionally if you put the hose to it. It dries out on its own, never had a problem in 30k miles.
