Headlight adjust

Postby Captainkid » Fri Mar 09, 2012 9:06 am

Thought I'd adjust my beams up a little as they seemed a bit low on one side.

Took the two panels off the top of the fairing and there's two nice little black knobs to twiddle with.
However they appear to do nothing :?

I then found two other slightly hidden bolt heads (with phillips screw tops) and these do adjust the up and down on each side.

So the question is - what are the two black adjusters for ?

Probably LH / RH adjustment.

You'd think, wouldn't you . . . but I don't see anything moving when I try and use these - got the beams shining on the garage door 3' in front of the bike.

The best way is to take the bike outside onto a straight road and have someone sit on the bike holding it upright whilst you adjust the lamp.
Adjusting the lamp in the garage, you wont notice the movement of the beam of the lamp in such a small space.

I think you'll find these are the patented 'Etch-a-kwak' controls. One makes vertical lines, the other horizontal. Diagonal lines/curves are buggers....

Once you have created your design, it is clearly visible on plain white walls at a distance of 31.42 metres....

HTH.

:P

No those are white knobs (see Hoohar below) whereas these are black - unless it was a limited edition Kwac - a - Sketch :lol:

Sorted - :P

You'd think the up and down were the easy knobs and the left to right would be the screw driver jobbies . . .
