Brake fluid damage to windscreen

Hello all, I got some damage to the windscreen and my tft screen. I was able to get Ducati to goodwill the windscreen but they want nothing to do with the tft screen. Anybody have any luck trying to polish out the display screen? Or any advice on how to polish it and or products to use. I'm ok with them saying they wont replace it, just sucks. Thanks in advance!

Plastic headlight polish will work if there is no hard coat on the screen.
Some plastics have a scratch resistant coating that cannot be polished. Like Oakley sunglasses.
Ask me how I know !

Happened to my 899 and 959 after track days, splashed the screens and dash. It happened while transporting them back from the track. Damage just appeared like magic after unloading them.

I have since tightened the reservoirs, that's where it must have come from but no sign of leaks or splashes elsewhere. Windscreens were annoying but dashes pissed me off big time.

This happened a couple of months ago so I'm over it now.

That's CRAZY! I would lay holy hell on Ducati to produce a brake reservoir that can't stay tight and leaks. If that's an issue everyone needs a brake reservoir sock to catch small leaks.

Yes it is Ducati's fault that the brake reservoir cap was loose. Bad Ducati.

Lol, if they make a reservoir that can't stay tight, hell yea it's their fault. It's brake fluid! for the front brake! If this is really an issue nthat could trigger a recall.
