Sooo.. my CR was outside through a nasty storm a couple weeks ago, and now it has quite a bit of moisture inside the speedo. I thought it would go away after being in the sun for a while, but it's there, and gets worse when the bike is running for a while, pretty much clousing up the whole thing to where I can't see anything except the tach.

Anyone deal with this? Is there a way to clear it?

I have not had the issue with the Buell, but I did have the tachometer on my Harley XR1200 do the same thing. I was instructed to remove it and put it in a bag of rice, dry uncooked. I did and within a day the rice had pulled the moisture out of the instrument.

Moisture in the speedo

Try switching to regular swimming trunks

The speedo isnt' sealed, so it might dry out - and leave water marks

it's VERY easy to disassemble, don't be scared off by the thought

How do you remove the "crystal" from the IC to clean it out?

Just pull screws, there might be a few snap tabs, I don't recall

Here is a good step by step on how to take apart the cluster and put it back together. http://www.badweatherbikers.com/buell/messages/290 431/720568.html?1377934425

Thanks guys. It ended up clearing up after a while, but did leave a stain that shows up after riding for a while. Will take it apart when I'm doing the big teardown sometime over the winter.
