It was October 2013 when I purchased my Breva 1100, and I was dismayed that the dash misted quite badly as soon as the cooler weather came.  However, it didn't mist consistently.  It seemed worst at the change of seasons and would then settle down.  I rode it through all kinds of horrible weather, right through until I sold the bike in December 2015, and the dash never failed.  So, I wouldn't worry too much yet.  Keep and eye on it and only try risky surgery if it really is a regular problem.  By the way, be careful to ensure ventilation if you cover the dash, otherwise you may simply be creating condensation that can't escape; the problem seems to be more about condensation than about rain getting in.

The panel on my 1200 Sport misted up now and then.  I drilled a small hole in the back of the binnacle to let the condensation out and never had further issues.

A couple of years ago I followed the guide on this forum and took my '06 Norge clocks apart because of misting, it has simply not been a problem ever since.

I rode the Norge 900 miles in 48 hours of mostly pouring rain earlier this week, with 2 nights parked out in the rain with no cover, then a good wash and there's not even a hint of misting up.

Thanks for the tips everybody. I'm sure your all right and its condensation not a leak. As i've bought another bike for winter, I will provide some ventilation for the instruments.
