head light GL 1800 for Europe.

Post by rowland » Tue Dec 11, 2018 6:13 pm



Can any one help. I want to change my 1800 headlights for use on European raods . It is a present A UK bike. Do I have to completely change the head light housing. I was considering purchasing ones from the USA but had been told that they have a FLAT LINE dipped beam? Thus having a straight line dip instead of the Dip to one side - away from the oncoming traffic. If I have to replace the whole light assembly purchasing from the USA reduces the ccost a great deal.

Any one out there got a set of spare headlight housings?

Can you not adjust them to the right? There is an adjustment screw on the back of the housing for horizontal.

The optical facets in the housings are different for right and left hand rule of the road. You will have to change the headlamps.
