Anyone seen any white marks on their dash like this? Didn't think much of it until I got home and tried to clean it off with window cleaner but wouldn't budge. Ended up having to use headlight polish for 10 mins to get 99% of it off.



Also noticed the brake reservoir cap was weeping so thinking it's brake fluid but can't see any other evidence of it except the dash. You wouldn't think it would hit the dash anyway and fly backwards as you're riding

Could be petrol droplets, one of my indicators has white spots. get the cover protector on fast. I doubt it would be brake fluid. Ive seen petrol do that on a Street fighter dash.

It's odd as my GPS sits before it and the tank so you would think it would have got on there too. Keeping an eye on it today.

Others have reported the same issue when I posted on Facebook. Ordered a screen protector but has to come from Germany as I could not find anything local

Order up some "The Last Coat" and treat the screen now it's clean. It seems to keep most things from sticking. A mate in the USA put me onto it. It also is great for KTM plastics.

100% brake fluid and now I know how it happened. Was doing some Doohan'esk lean angles (in my head lol) and when you take a left hander you can see the very edge of the brake res would be over the dash. Just takes a drop to hit it

Sigh....just another thing we can't get in Australia from the looks of it. Thanks for the suggestion though

I also had a couple of white spots appear on the screen. I ran a finger around the brake fluid reservoir and found it was very slightly leaking!! Another half turn on the screws and no more leaks or spots (y)

Sorry as I know this is an older post but a related question...my TFT on the far left edge had two slight 'scuffs'...nothing a finger nail catches when you run it across it but annoying none the less. Is headlight polish the preferred method to try to clean up, buff out, polish up the TFT? I have Novus Polish "system" also...1, 2, and 3 and Plexus...the Plexus did very little to help the situation but was afraid to find out if the Novus #2 would be too aggressive. Any input would be appreciated.

Thank you

I used headlight polish but sure you can use other stuff.
