Misting in Speedometer and RevCounter.

My new Interceptor’s clocks mist over when it’s being ridden. It happens across the bottom quarter of the Speedo and Rev Counters.

As a result it is impossible to read the fuel gauge or see the Neutral indicator light.

Yesterday I watched a review of the bike, by a dealer, on YouTube. Although he loved the bike his model suffered from the same misting up.

Does any Forum member have the same problem?

The same thing happens with the Himalayan clocks. Mine have been misting over since I've had it. I did stick a few silicone bags in, but that didn't work. I would have taken to the dealer, but it's too far away to bother. I'll likely try drilling a small hole somewhere, as others have done.

This happens to mine also and all my motorcycle gauges from BMWs, Moto Guzzis, Kawasaki's, Harley Davidsons, even happened on my Honda GoldWings, yes everything! I’ve been told many times we get much of the same drippy wet weather you get in the UK. It is all a normal thing that happens in wet climate. So no worries be happy and ride safe.

Strangely I have never had this problem before on any bike, including Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, or on scooters from Honda and Piaggip. That is over more than 50 years of riding bikes In British weather conditions.

I reported the fault to my supplying Dealership yesterday, at the 300 mile service, and will now wait to see what Royal Enfield have to say. It is a shame such a problem detracts from an otherwise lovely, classic bike.

It happened to my Himalayan once then cleared up. If it happens again I'll open the housing drill a vent hole and glue a circle of Goretex over the vent.

By removing the clocks from their bracket, taking out the rubber bung on their rear and gently heating them with a hairdryer, then replacing the bung, the situation has improved. One more treatment and they may be OK.

I noticed my gauges fogging in the bottom quarter as well . I live in the tropics and this usually only happens in the high humidity of the mornings . By midmorning on a ride the problem goes away .

Does anyone live in a very dry area and have the same fogging issue ?
