On my way to work this morning I got flashed a few times and my lights were on dim and was wondering if my headlights were adjusted to high from the factory. I don't remember seeing anything regarding adjustment in the manual.

Headlight

Do you have the RS or RT? The RS manual does have the instructions. There is an adjustment screw under each headlight. While on a level floor and some one setting on the trike the lights are aimed at a wall 33' away. I think the lights should be about 26" off the ground. Check the manual for exact measurements.

I want to be seen so I ride with the head lights on bright and the fog lights on in daytime and get flashed occasionally. Better a flash than a hit. Been there, done that! Also added the long tail light on the trunk.:cool:

Thanks for the info. I did find the instructions and did adjust them down a bit. I agree though its better to be seen.

For some reason my headlights were set quite high and I was getting flashed even with mine on low. Once I adjusted them down some I am getting better coverage on the road on low and on high they light up farther down the road instead of the sky.

I run with foglights on all the time, but keep my headlights on low... I don't like to run with high beams on only becuae my own peepers are REAL sensitive to glare and I know what that can be like when being blinded in traffic by oncoming lights...:eek: :cool:
In the day time???:confused:
