Default Headlamp Fogging

I purchased a 2014 Victory Judge and one minor issue I'm having with it is that the headlamp fogs/hazes up shortly after the bike's been turned off. Fortunately, the haze dissipates after a period of time and thus far does not seem to be building up a film on the back reflector area, but I'm wondering if this is a normal occurrence and if other Victory owners have experienced this issue?

Since the bike is still under warranty, the dealer has said that they would replace the headlamp, but I'm curious if this is a normal occurrence before I go through the effort of taking it in??

Thanks,
Rob

I would take it in and have them replace it. Headlights aren't supposed to fog up

Thanks for your recommendation. I'll make an appointment to take the bike in.

I noticed a few days ago that the inside of my headlight was fogged up and looked like smoke was gathered on the inside of the lens. It was in the mid 50s with very high humidity. Later in the day the humidity dropped the fogged went away but I can still see a little smoke stain. Looks like I will have to remove the housing and clean the inside.
