Sure no prob. It's really not that bad. If it weren't under warrenty I wouldn't cry about it and I'd let it go without replacing. But since it is why the hell not

So where do you suggest guys in a desert park? Under a tree?

Not too many of those in your average desert mate!
Thats common sense to me!

Had mine done last year before any damage appeared. Yeah it's just a small sticker placed where the sun magnifies the rays through the bug eyes.

Mine has some melting spots now. I don't park facing the sun anymore. I will get it fixed by the dealer sooner or later.

Just talked to the dealership after he called a few guys. Apparently this doesn't happen to any of us in the midwest (at least nobody has reported it ) which doesn't surprise me that I'm the exception the first person he talked to said they were doin the fix by applying a frosted vinyl/sticker. He thought was to "hokey" and would eventually start peeling which I'm glad he didn't settle with that. One of the next people said to replace the whole housing. So looks like I'm getting the '10 frosted housing and they are also replacing all the melted plastics just waiting on parts then I can throw the hids in

now if I could only get the cct fixed also....

Here are some pics i took with the phone. I have better/actually clear ones on the camera but that would require me to hook it up to a computer

here you can see 2 burn marks right next to each other in the gray area






you can't really see it in this one but it's just to the right of the light reflection



also note that in each of the light marks/reflections is where the paint is starting to become wavy. I doubt you'll be able to see it though with these pics

**in the 1st and 3rd pic the wavy marks are just to the right of the reflection

I just checked my 09 today that has just under 900 miles on it and I have the melting spots as well. My bike is always garaged except for ride time, but the bike did sit outside at the dealer. I'll hit up the dealer sometime in the next couple days and try and get those frosted lens.

Speak for yourself. I have it going on with my 09 right now and I live in Wisconsin. Dealership is looking into it at the moment. I should be hearing back soon.

speaking of recalls has anyone got any information on the CCT? Been reading some disturbing things that the 09 has problems... would like to know in advance what I'm getting myself into when I get home and pick one up.
