headlight adjustment

Post by Tony Skelton »

I recently bit the bullet and went to a trike. It seems as though the headlights on the trike do not go as high as they did on my old gold wing. They move up and down freely but are just not as high as they need to be. Is there a way to manually adjust and raise the upper limit of the upper stop? Thanks for the help.

There are adjustments on the rear of the headlights. Look up under the fairing and you will see them. One is vertical and the other horizontal adjustments.
I tried posting the picture but it won't allow me.
