PostSubject: headlight adjustment   Sat Apr 23, 2011 10:45 pm

anyone had headlight adjustment problems?

the bike is a ZX1100E completely different fairing from a normal ZX11 C or D I do have a parts bike a ZX11D but most things do not interchange. I want to make a chopper out of the parts bike.

Anyway I installed lowering dog bones, & of course my headlight shines too high now, so I need to lower it.

problem is there are 2 adjuster wheels & they make no difference, headlight stays stationary, do I need to disasemble fairing & headlight assembly to lower?

I have applied pressure to headlight while turning adjustment knobs, & it refuses to move, & I tried it at night with a couple pieces of tape on an object 25 or so feet away to show if there was any movement, & none, it wont go up or down nor side to side.

it looks like what was supposed to be a couple minute job will turn into a 1/2 day or more job. dont want to damage the headlight assembly. but guessing I will have to dissasemble it, figuring something is either stripped, or not engaging correctly.

Story of my life, when it comes to mechanical stuff.

Can't help you with that fix, just suggest going to a larger forum or maybe bike specific forum to find the info you need.
Good Luck!
