    Re: headlight adjustment

    you need to look higher up for the adjuster,almost out of reach. The one you think is the correct one isn't (like i did ), think that does the left to right adjustment.

    View from behind, lower right screw for left/right adjustment and upper left screw for up/down adjustment.
    Note that the upper left screw is sometime hidden by the cable harness!

    Re: headlight adjustment

    are you guys talking about adjusting the headlight beam?

    I'd love to make my dipped headlight point a bit higher, in pitch black i can only see the floor up to about 10-15 metres in front of me, so high beam is a must down country lanes, also so that it points round the corner i'm leaning into, obviously because of this my beams are flicking from high to low all the time with cars coming the other way.

    Is it the same for others?
    mostly it worries me that I wouldnt see an object (like a tyre) in the road until it was so close I couldnt react (this is on unlit roads)

    Do any of you have any pics of this adjustment your talking about?
    thanks

    Re: headlight adjustment

    What is correct level? do you know how high should if be on the distance of 10m?mine dipped is about 1 foot high..it is definitely too low comparing to my previous bikes..(i know you must not dazzle oncoming traffic so probably below the high of the windscreen?(what say the law in UK?(dipped and full) Which tool do you need to adjust it? Cheers
