Got Fogged

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' at netrider.net.au started by Doch, Mar 21, 2016.

    Thoroughly clean the lens with a neutral pH cleaner (baby shampoo or something similar). Rinse and dry it well and be careful not to touch the inside of the lens with your fingers. Then apply a good anti fog agent, not RAINEX or similar products not designed for plastics.

    While you are waiting for the anti fog to dry, remove the old sealer from the main unit and replace.

  3. The only criticism is using acetone silcone. Acetone not compatible with some plastics (will melt certain plastics). Having said that, I did a similar job to my cluster 2 years ago and never had a problem.
