Looks like some moisture has gotten in there. Were you riding in the rain? How long has it been like that? If it did get wet, did you try to dry it out with a hair dryer or some other way. Heat gun would be too hot IMO and probably end up melting something. If it is moisture, even if it eventually dries off you probably still need to figure out how the moisture is working its way in since I would presume these parts should be sealed air-tight.
Its true that lcd can be affected by heat but that i think usualy shows up as if the whole pannel is activated. This defo looks like water damage.
I had this on my clock on my present 99 model, half of it didnt show. I managed to get a new one from a broken bike. When I installed it I sealed everything myself first with fishtank silicone sealer. I have read that the xx is prone to a bit of dashboard circuitry corrosion where condensation builds more than water seeping thru.
Nope,looks like its the heat,the heat radiation here is a killer.
30 mins in the midday sun can easily fry an egg on ur fuel tank...
Anyway managed to get someone who can do lcd replacement on my bird. Waiting for my moolah to roll in before sending it over..
