I just want to keep dust and moisture out. I was talking to some of my friends and a suggestion was to put a thin bead of krazy glue on it. I also think the silicone would also work. Sitting on the bike you can’t hardly see it looking straight on it. If you use silicone, I would let it set up and use a good sharp window scraper blade to take the excess off.
It is pretty difficult to seal a crack in either plastic or glass that thin. If you can determine which it is that would help. A dealer may know, or it may show in the parts fiche offered online by many Vic dealers like: https://www.capitolcycleparts.com/
You may also be able to tap it with a metal object to hear the distinct difference between the "ping" of glass and plastic.
If it's glass you might try a couple layers of masking tape (one on top of the other) - on either side of the run - followed by a thin bead of silicone, followed by scraping off the excess with a single edged razor blade, followed by removing the tape by pulling it back against itself to leave you with some silicone on each side of the run. Silicone, or super glue, at that thickness - in your application - will have little strength, but the silicone can be used as a gasket.
You could use the same procedure with a plastic compatible silicone if the lens is plastic. Not all silicons are compatible with plastic.
The down side? How will you know if the crack was sealed all the way into the housing? Well, I guess that question kind of answers itself. Still, it could not hurt to try.
Today my cruise control stopped working. While travelling at a constant speed in 5th gear at about 55 mph, I pressed the "on" button. I got the momentary green flash of the cruise icon on the dash like normal. I then pressed the "set" button and nothing happened. The green cruise icon did...
Got this idea for a new thread based off comments from another thread.
So what is the farthest you have ever ridden for something trivial?
This is where you started your ride saying I would like this and you rode to get it.

Hi all. I'm looking at upgrading the factory head and fog lights on my 2013 Cross Roads. I'm going to go with a JW Speaker Adaptive 2 headlight, and also want to go LED fog lights. What size fog lights would I need to get to still use the factory housing, if possible, or would I have to replace...
I need to get my 2011 XR across country, and bring a different bike back with me in the least amount of time possible. No I'm not going to ride into WI in November, go ahead and call me a wuss.
It looks like it's pretty economical to rent the UHaul MC trailer and the folks over at HDForum seem...
