So I am getting the dreaded condensation in the dash and thought about getting the Motoscope Pro. But me thinks it is a bit more complicated than just a swap. Would it even work on our Grisos?

Dunno.

But before you splash out, you could try adding a vent to your existing speedo. Dash condensation is quite common on the CARC bikes, but then my V11 Le Mans also suffers from it. Sudden drop in temperature is usually the cause.

Not a simple swap, unfortunately. I've only done a quick search, but it looks like the Motoscope CAN bus system only talks HD & Triumph. The main issues I see are the air pressure sensor and immobiliser. The pressure sensor is in the dash, and data is sent over CAN bus. I think you could probably emulate the immobiliser, however.


Good luck!

I keep condensation at bay by putting one of these in a bag over the instruments when it's parked up in garage (2 seconds to fit & remove) - just microwave it occasionally to keep it working....Car demister   Cheaper and simpler than drilling holes that might allow more water back in...

Those bags look like a good bet. A lot less trouble than what I did (conformal coating + dessicating breather). Condensation overnight and in the winter inside the garage is the main problem, I decided. Drilling holes won't stop that.
