unfortunately, it's not uncommon, depending on where you live.

it tends to be worse where the humidity is higher.....not so common in the desert.

it occurs from temperature changes inside the gauge. the light bulbs just get too hot, then condensation forms during the cool down after you park the bike.

LED replacement lamps may help.
