    2001 GP1200 display screen, plastic lenses scratched

    The display on my 01 gp1200 is jacked. Its either scratched or sun damaged? Its nearly impossible to see the display. The display completely works, its the plastic is either scratched or some how the sun killed it.

    Anyone have a line on them? Looks like they're big $$$. Thinking about trying somen 2000grit wet and maybe a polishing compound? Any advice?

    Still trying to come up with the correct terminology, it the "multi function display" the LCD is fine, the plastic screen is either scratched or sun damaged.

    Maybe you can try one of those kits to fix fogged headlight lens?

    Yeah, I was thinking about that. Its deep, you can feel it with your finger nail. I'm thinking 2000grit wet sand. I was wondering if its common for a ski?

    Its almost like it got fuel splashed on it or something.

    OK, hit it with some 1000 grit to knock it smooth and then 2000. Much better, but hazed. Hand rubbed 3M cutting compound with a polishing pad and the haze is 80% gone. If I worked harder it would be nearly perfect.

    Don't know if anynone else's display has done this, but its a 10 min fix that's better than spending $$$ for a cluster.

    They sell plastic polish by Meguiers or Mothers in the auto parts store. The grit is much finer than compound. Hit it with that and it'll come out like new.

    Cool.
    It looks like there are fine cracks all the way through the plastic. Tried to get a pic,but no dice. Its way than it was before. I've got some mequiers plastic polish from a headlight kit I may try.

    I wonder what caused it.
