View Full Version : Condensation in Rear Lights
09-13-2008, 08:56 AM
I have some water droplets/condensation in my rear light and indicators and I've read in a magazine (actually an article about the Tuono) that there is a "simple DIY fix". I've tried searching the forums for "Condensation" etc but can't seem to find anything.
Can anyone help me out? Is the solution a small hole drilled in the underside of the lenses to help vent the moisture? Best Regards,

I could be wrong here, but are you sure you dont have a leak in the lens allowing moisture in? They should be sealed tightly not allowing water or air in. I had a problem with my GSXR years ago and found the lens was not sealing tightly. Whenever it got washed or a little rain....it fogged right up.

what model POB? i had the same thing in my 07 and found it was after cleaning it or riding in the rain, i made a point of mentioning it at 1st service so's i could follow it through under warranty.
a hole on the underside is the generally accepted cure/fix for any light assembly moisture - but i didn't want to start mucking around with DIY fixes with bike under warranty

Cheers Guys. Its an 05 model bike, reg'd in 06 (UK).
It could well be that water got in last week as bike got a real pasting weather wise when I rode it home. I'll take it to the dealer and ask for a quote even though its out of warranty now.
