Now that the cool mornings are starting here my guages are getting foggy on the inside almost to the point of not being able to read them.
Has anyone else experienced this??
If so is there a fix or should I be talking to the dealer.
Thanks

Several folks here have had that problem, seems that there is no "end user" fix, or at least nobody's fessed up how to do it.

I think it's a show it to the dealer thing, and ride with foggy gauges until the new set your dealer ordered arrives.

I have the same problem... is it something that gets done on warranty?

I notice it after I wash my bike as well, there are spaces water can't get in, but it is a pain

This is a very common problem---and a warranty replacement.

I'm on my third set.

I think it is a common enough problem that the dealer does not have to see the fog. My dealer didn't. But I didn't take a chance. I went by a gas station on the way, soaked the gauges, and parked in the sun. Maybe call the dealer first and ask if he needs "proof." He may not.

I just had this problem a couple of weeks ago with my Monster, I was washing it, and noticed the fog, I am scheduled for my 600 mile service in a couple of weeks, and I called the dealership and they said the guages would be replaced under warranty, they didn't need to see the foggy guages, and he said that he had to check with DNA to make sure. So far, I am happy, and hopefully after the service and the guage replacement, I will still be happy (also I'm going to be a lot more careful with the water when I wash it)

hey Capt.,

With all that water around you, it must be dificult to keep the gauges dry. Do actually ride your Monster on the Loveboat? Burn-outs on the Lido deck?

With Issac driving and Doc riding b_i_t_c_h, the guages always seemed to fog up, you draw your own conclusions. :p

My guages are fine, but I don't have a Foggy edition.

Talked to the dealer the other day and he said no problem parts ordered. Must be pretty common problem if they did not even have to see the bike.
