Melted spot on dash

So just noticed that a small circular spot on my dash looks like it has melted, in the upper right quarter. It's the TFT material not the Perspex cover of the dash. It can't have been caused by sun and the screen (which is DP) as the bike hasn't been parked in the sun at all. Seems to have happened when I took the bike out for a short ride yesterday. Will post a pic later but has anyone else had this?? Starting to get fed up with these warranty issues!

first I've heard for that one. Any chance it could be someone being cute and putting a cigarette on it? Or other such vandalism. I don't know my tft getting warm at all.

Here is the pic. If you have had the same issue it would be good to see a pic as well.

That's very odd... I KNOW you're the first to post it up on this forum.

very bizarre, and no chance someone could've vandalized it at some point?

Bet young buck that it's from a cig that someone flipped out of their car window and bounced off of you and landed there. Direct vandalism would have been more severe.

Also, have you been to the track recently? I've been burned on my neck from rubber flying off of a tire once. Could have had a molten marble land there as well
