Just checked my lights and I have the dash on them. Strange as my bike is a March 2011 bike and the vin is within the range. I did buy the bike s/h with less than 3000k's on it in June this year so either lucky or it has already been changed over. Either way I keep checking them for cracks.

I got mine replaced over the weekend. I was surprised how much nicer non-cracked lenses look.

Really? So it fixed the lack of light ahead during a hard corner?

Ran down to the dealer yesterday to have my headlights replaced. Although only the right lens had cracked, dealer replaced the entire headlight assembly.
Took 'em less than a 1/2 hour, no worries.
W/O enlarging the images here, it may be tough to see the two cracks that developed. I thought the lens had been struck by a stone but there was no divot or any sign of impact on the surface of the lens, completely smooth.
When I asked about the cause, the dealer wasn't aware of why the lenses were cracking. Lens material defect?
Anyway, new headlights. Good customer support, thank you Triumph!
