    I wonder if that's why on the 3rd gen they put a dash cover over the instruments like in a car.  :187:

    Just noticed this when I returned from a ride this morning. I too, have smelled what seemed to be overheated plastic on occasion…
    2016 garage kept Versys 1000 purchased new as a leftover in Spring 2019. 33k miles. The motorcycle is well maintained and meticulously cleaned nearly every time I ride it. It does have a medium tint aftermarket v-stream windscreen.
    This is making me curious…

    Years back 1985 I was employed as a salesman  at a Suzuki  shop.We had a GSXR 750 on display in the front window in the sun . One day while at my desk I noticed a wisp of smoke come from the area of the dash which had a foam enclosed  tach particular to that model .At first I thought a electrical short but upon  inspection it was a burn caused  by the  sun from the windscreen magnifying it . In fact if you looked  more closely you could see more lines burnt in the foam as the sun had moved  previously in the sky.

    It’s definitely sun damage,happened to my mates bike a few times, in a really warm day you have to put a microfibre cloth over the dash to protect it
