weird problem

Okay I am out riding and stop by a friends house for about an hour.When I leave I notice my cluster had a weird brown kinda film covering it, not on the outside but actually inside the cluster.I could barley see through it.( The cluster for the gear indicator and stuff) Anyway I'm thinking well I got to buy a new cluster something has screw up on this one,but as I am riding down the road it starts to clear up and by the time I got home (about 2 miles) it was all clear again other than one tiny spot that could hardly be seen.Anybody got any ideas?

Usually if it fogs up it would be due to condensation, but that would look just like what it is; misty water deposit. The brown colour is unusual, but it does seem to behave in similar way to condensation. Is the cluster damaged at all where moisture could get in? The fact is clears seems to point in that direction. Has it happened again, or were the weather conditions different on that day?

All I could recommend would be what I would do; dismantle the cluster by unscrewing the cover, let the cluster 'dry out' for a day in a warm dry area. I have had a similar situation on my first 12 many years ago and did this, seemed to help. Sorry if not a great response but all I can think of!

Good luck!
