Headlight liquid?

Hi!

I just found a yellow liquid in the lower corner of the left headlight. It seems to come from the top left corner. I think there is a little drop at right too.

Is it just condensation or something else I should worry about? I rarely drive in the rain: in fact, it happened last summer but not yet this summer.

My bike is a 2013 repsol edition with 9900km.

I added some pictures but it is hard to take very good ones...

Thank you

seems like condensation. it should disappear during day's heat however make sure the pilots are slotted in properly if loose they let some moisture in.

put your hand inside the fairing. the pilot bulbs are mounted on a rubber tube which slots in anti-clockwise and to remove it you rotate clockwise and pull out.

make sure its not loose. i dont see any other way moisture/fluid getting inside the assembly.

It's just the countersteering fluid level is a bit high.
