    Question adjusting the headlight up and down

    i've got some guys riding opposite to me at night on a two lane road signal their high beam. so that means my light is hitting where it shouldnt.

    how do i adjust the headlight up and down? i tried the two screws at the bottom, didnt seem to move the beam any closer to the bike...

    any ideas?

    thanks!

    Omar, from what I have heard, attempting to adjust the screws with the Headlight installed in the bucket doesn't work so well, you need to pull the headlight assembly and adjust then re-attach.

    Old Fool did a great write-up on adjusting the headlight

    Good luck and keep us posted buddy

    I got my kit in and I'm trying to install it now...unless I'm missing something there is no way the connector to the old headlight plug and the + battery are long enough.

    As stated this come with ZERO instructions...I did find them online and download, I have attached it to this thread. So, did any of you have to add more length to the + cable so it would reach to the battery?

    Well I had to cut the + wire and add some length to it to make it work, no way around it. Got it all wire up and it's working great, just need to get the tank and stuff back on.

    I think the kit has changed since the first post by Omar...the wires from the DDM module were very short, no way would they go from where I had it mounted to extending outside the headlight bucket. I had to have my wife hold the headlight assembly up to the bucket just to get the wires to reach.

    I cut the + wire between the module and the fuse and added about 10" to reach the battery, after that no problem. I highly suggest testing the light before putting everything back together.

    Here where I mounted my stuff.

    sorry big x, i have not been here for a while and did not see your question. you are correct about cutting the positive wire and adding a length in there. some one a while back had pm'd me and they had to do the same....but then just recently some one was has problem with the grounding, he didnt need to extend the positive wire.

    so my guess is that they just grab what ever wiring kit they have available and just send it out.
