These crack are at the same place as the mounting bracket of the upper right side when you are facing the bike.
All 3 headlights had crack at same spot.
This is how its start , cracks keep going down as you ride because of vibration and water start seeping in..

Alas, I too now have water in the headlight. Even here in Sunny SoCal, it can happen. I noticed it after a 2 hr ride in moderate shower. I cannot see ANY cracks in the lens anywhere. I do have my front/front fender off right now because my tire is too big, so maybe the water got forced in from below.
My dealer took a hot pin and poked a hole into the bottom of the lens and drained the water out. I am debating on whether to leave it open to always drain, or put a small peice of clear tape over it and drain as needed.

Ride the bike for some good distance so the light get really hot then stick a good dab of silicon over the hole and let it dry.

If the moister comes back you can pick the silicon off with your finger nail.

My money is you have a leak.

I took my 08' to the dealer the other day with this issue. They were told by Victory that the 08' was actually the strongest housing made. They suggested that I use clear silicone and the top of the light where it is already sealed. We were unable to find any cracks and Victory will not replace the housing.

I wonder if all 4 rubber grommets are in place. I wonder if the headlight mount is bolted to the frame properly. If its loose that could cause the crack or if its crooked
