This time of the year I always get some condensation on the inside of the speedo and rev counter - it will eventually clear, usually when the warmer weather gets here.

Any solutions to this?

Think I saw somewhere drilling 2 tiny holes on the underside of the instrument housing lets enough air in to keep things from condensing - did I imagine that?

I have the same problem with my 2021 Himalayan. I suspect that the instrument is not sealed and more ventilation is not necessarily better. One possible treatment would be to remove the instrument and place it in a closed container with and adequate amount of desiccant for a while, then seal the existing holes or seams with RTV. I have failed to imagine a reason why a more sealed case would present a problem.

I wouldn't go drilling holes, leave that out.My Himalayan is exact same as my Interceptor with misting up.Just learned to live with it. There is some stuff on you tube.

The thinking was about drilling holes it would let air flow through the clocks to dry them out.

As you say probably best left well alone, the misting will dissapear eventually and come back, during the winter.
