    C90 Sun damaged instrument cluster

    Parked my 2015 C90 in the sun in a car park for a couple of hours in the 40 deg C + heat. The Lcd displays went black and have now gone dark with discolouration. Also the ring around the speedometer has distorted and needle cant register above 80kph.

    The Suzuki dealer (who I bought the C90 from) has taken photos to send to Suzuki. Have been told It should be done under warranty.

    Anyone else had any problems with sun damage.

    I have heard that the screen on Hayabusa's magnify the sun and cause the damage,,,If your C90 has one then that may be the cause. Many here in sunny Au fit a more heavily tinted aftermarket screen. Having said that my MT 09 hasn't got a screen and I have parked in the sun several times without problems....to date!

    Update: New instrument cluster fitted under warranty. No questions asked, dealer took photos and sent them to Suzuki and spares were sent and fitted. Thanks Steve, I haven't found a tinted cluster cover as yet, will keep looking. May have to film tint it. The 07 M50 never changed over the 8yrs I owned her.

    And hopefully your new one won't either, sun or no sun.
    Don't believe everything that you think.
