Clarification about why double bubbles melt gauges
Ok, I contacted Puig directly and straight from the horses mouth:
"The problem is when the sunrays hit the screen on the interior part. Then,
it gets reflected to the gauges and provokes a melting.
That usually happens when the sun runs low (winter time).
If the sunrays hit the windscreen on the exterior side of the screen, then
Depending on what bike you have, you might need to worry about it.
Thank you for your interest.

So ultimately, face your bike into the sun, if you own a Puig at least. I also saw some posts a while back about laying a cloth down over your gauges. Im not sure I would try that. It might set the cloth on fire. What I do is take a helmet sack, pull it down over the windscreen and pull the drawcord around your mirror. That way the rays never even get to the screen and it wont blow off in the wind.
Hope this saves some gauges!
BTW, I put this in general discussion since it doesnt just apply to any particular year model.
