Scratched/Cracked clocks

Had this happen to my clocks. Don't know how or why.
Left the bike, went for a coffee and it was like this when I came back.
Really annoying and dunno how it happened. Looks like it's scratched or cracked.
Anyone else had this happen. Not easy to see from the pic but looks like the scratches are deep enough to be cracks.

Seems like I read somewhere that the windscreen kinda acted as a magnifying glass and was causing some of the instrument panels to crack. Not sure if that was on certain models or windscreens though.

Bizarre. Is there any evidence that something struck the face of the display?
Also, how old is the bike?

Fraud. Great idea esmirna.

Did you wash it and have something on the rag ? Maybe some dirt or something? I have read the horror stories about scratching the display here. When I wash mine, I am always sure I do the display first, in case I got some grime on the towels from the other body parts. Maybe that ?

That sucks, I usually lay my gloves over the dash when the bike sits for that reason. I wonder if you clean it and use some wax on it if that would help at all, what about a 3M film cover over it?

so much for ETHICS.

I have similar but smaller scratches. Along with clutch fluid etching. Thanks dealer for leaving residue after fluid change. Blew on the screen and didn't notice until too late. What mechanic is going to own up to that, none.

Anyone without marks on the screen, I highly recommend putting film on it right away.

ok op you need to buy a new dash because the residence of New York don't park on double parking, alway move their cars on clean up day and when they get a parking ticked for expired meter they blame their self. happy my lord?
