    How to adjust the headlight X & Y axles?

    Hi,

    I thought I known what I did when turning the two adjuster screws, but I was way out of scope since a destroyed the entire headlight factory adjustment

    So, can anyone please tell me how to get back to the original headlight factory settings regarding rasie/lower and horizontal settings for the entire headlight lamps?

    Allmost every car e meet now is honking with their headlights to me, I reccon my lights are acting like mini-sun's to them

    Please help guy´s,

    Thanx...

    lol i totally get the same problem, and still cant see a ****ing thing at night!

    i noticed it has alot to do with the bike, for example when you are accelerating your lights get higher and blind everyone... when you brake people think you are flashing them to pull out right infront of you...

    it should say in your manual which way to turn the adjusters to raise/lower the beams, probably has a factory setting there to?? if not just park your bike about 10m from a wall at night and adjust until they point in the right sorta place

    Sod the car dwellers get one of these http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/APRILIA-RSV-R-...6.c0.m14.l1318

    Problem solved.

    They don't have any kick up and are flat line pattern so don't dazzle any other bugger on the road.

    Piece of cake to fit, if you get stuck PM me.

    Okay, the manual says:

    Place the vehicle on flat ground, 10 m away from a wall. Turn on the low beam, sit on the vehicle and make sure that the beam projected on the wall is slightly under the horizontal line of the headlight (about 9/10th of the total height).

    This would mean, if a meassure the total height on the headlight, to lets say 100 cm, the beam from 10 m should only raise up to 90 cm (90% of 100 cm)on the wall from 10 m.

    Is that correct?

    Thanx
