Hard to see it in a pic
This one is kinda noticable
You can see how the fairing sticks out away from the light assembly right next to the light right about where the reflection of the light from above is.

That's funny... if it "melted" you would know
that's just engineering tolerances at it's finest.

I wouldn't call it melting.
It's kinda warped a little
I thought maybe direct sunlight for extended periods of time but that makes no sense at all.

Thanks for the responses. I must be a bit of a newb or something. My windscreen is a double bubble, but it is black and NOT translucent or transparent at all. Kind of like trying to look through a wall. I am not understanding how that could be the cause. I could see it happening if it was even slightly transparent.

Still confused....

Above my gauges melted a little bit too. I have a clear PUIG double bubble. The thing had a warning sticker on it that said do not leave the windshield exposed in direct sunlight for periods of time or else the convex shape of the windscreen can have a magnification effect that can melt your plastics. So yes ash, it most likely was caused by the double bubble (in my case). Heed the warnings. Even if you have a black one like you say (you sure it's not dark smoke?) I imagine it could still happen. Later,
