Condensation in the headlight

My buddy on his F4 and I did about 200 miles last Sunday and we got caught in some rain and I have condensation in the headlight of my beloved Brutie beast. Is there a seal that has to be replaced or does it require a new headlight? The bike is still under warranty.

You can pull out the bulb ( not a fun job. Don`t let the clip fly away ) and then blow dry air inside to remove the moisture.

B750 and B1078 RR both gone now.

It is very easy to take the glass off, i do it for track days, that should allow it to dry naturally. JM2C

Brutale is very different.

Not a difficult thing to do, like replacing a bulb, but it shouldn't get condensation in there anyway.

No problem, I am going to the dealer today with it. I was not sure if it could be repaired or replaced. It appears that the solution is to replace it. Thanks for everybody's help.
