Just finished washing my scooter and noticed a bit of "fog" inside the headlights.

Is this "normal" or cause for concern?

I don't ever recall seeing this on my 09 and it was ridden for 30k through many torrential rain storms.

I thought these were pretty well sealed, am I mistaken?

I think you'll be able to see the condensation in the attached pic. It's pretty much the lower half of each compartment.

Anybody seen a similar situation?

condensation

Seems strange to me, I've never noticed any in my lights. if it were mine than I'd remove the bulbs for a few days and let air get in to dry. If you get a drip of moisture collect on the bulb I'm sure it will fail.

Further to the previous posts.
I have the 2015 DL650.
4000k now on the clock.
Noticed condensation, fogging on headlight glass after rain and also after washing. Only used sponge without pressure spraying.
Will take to dealer this week as under warranty.
See what they say.

I also get a slight fogging in the headlamps, for 3 years now since I purchased it. This happens after a ride when I park the bike, bike still warm, while riding there is no fogging. After it cools the fogging goes away. Perhaps it is the high humidity here in the Philippines causing the condensation/fogging when it cools?
