Angry My speedometer is cracking.

Has anyone experienced this?

It came out of no where, it wasnt there when i got out of work (i know because i changed a few times from ODO to TRIP and i wouldve noticed) but when i stopped at a gas station bought a coke and proceeded to leave then i noticed the crack.

EDIT:
The crack appears to be internal because i cant feel the gap if i run my nail over it.

It is hard to see in the picture......is the bike still under warranty? If not, the glass/plastic bezel top cover can be replaced for a not so minor amount of $$$$$. I have never seen a cracked gauge glass before.....have seen them melted by the windshield and the sun rays.

IF it's not on the 'cover', it's PROBABLY a fault in the LEDs, so... WARRANTY...?

I don't know what year model your bike is, so I looked up the cover for my 2013. https://www.cheapcycleparts.com/oemp...cd8c27/meter-s
