Speedo glass spots

Hello everyone! I was wondering if anyone has run across this. I have a 2010 XV1900 Raider and on my speedo glass there's what to appears to be water spots on the inside of the glass around the edges only. Is there a wat to remove the glass to clean and possibly using silicone or something to seal the glass to prevent it from happening again??
I appreciate any input. Thanks

I think Yamaha Pat just did this. Can't find the thread. Hopefully he'll see this. If i remember correctly he removed glass, cleaned good and resealed.

had the same thing happen on my 950 within its first year. i cleaned BOTH sides of the glass and couldn't remove them which makes me think it is 2 panes of glass or plastic and the spots were inbetween. they were there for years and just gradually dissipated by themselves.

There is a glass panel on the outside and a plastic one on the inside. The condensation was between the two. My friend pulled them apart and resealed them
