Speedo Screen Cracking

Hi my 2015 899 speedo started cracking about 6mths ago. I have two large cracks 20ml long and what looks like the start of another starting. I have now done 23000 kms. Has anyone else had any issues. Please send photo's and what help you got as it looks like I will be taking this to the small claims court

If it were the windscreen, I would have expected signs of melting vs cracks forming.

I have heard of the 1199 developing cracked screens, but this is the first time that it has been raised with the LCD.

It is not the windscreen, it's the instrument panel clear face.

Ducati in New Zealand is not playing ball so I'm going to take them to the small claims court.

I meant if it were the windscreen causing the issue by magnifying the light hitting it and causing the plastic on the instrument cluster to become hot and crack... referring to the previous comment in regard to double bubble screens causing instrument clusters to crack or melt.

Hi, the 899 and 959 have LCD screens that run ‘cool’ so it’s unusual to get a crack. The TFT screen in the 1199 runs hot and cracking was common.

The screen material is 3mm thick polycarbonate and whilst it looks like a press fit, it’s virtually welded onto the back part that holds the electronics. Impossible to remove without care and commitment.

I had to use a Dremel to cut the screen out of mine, due to a crack (1199) then cut a perfect copy in the shape of the screen and bonded using silicone. Concealed the edges using a carbon dash trim.

They can be repaired, but it’s a careful job, and I could imagine it’s easy to screw things up!

By the way, my 1199 screen was bought cracked. At 112 versus 600 I decided it was worth seeing if I could repair it, to upgrade my 899.

It worked and I’m happy.

How did you cut out with the dremel. If I don't have any luck with Ducati it might be worth a shot .

I have a cracked screen as well but unsure whether its from 'natural' cause or vandalism. Couldn't get a claim from the dealer as well. Installed screen protector as a measure. So far it held up fine.
