Head lamp adjustment...

Greetings from NE Ohio where the Cavs have FINALLY made a decent trade (IMHO)...bye bye Damon Jones.

Enough about that....and I won't bring up Ben Curtis either. Yikes!

Anyway....recently changed over to the cq HID bulb....what took me so long?
Huge improvement!

My question is this....I have dialed the adjustment knob for the light beam as low as it can go, yet it seems like my light still shines too high.

Has anyone figured out how to lower it a bit more? Is there a cable adjustment on it? I am guessing yes, but before I tear the tupperware off looking for it, I thought I would ask.

Oh....the Indians also let Byrd go...good move there too.

Re: Head lamp adjustment...

there is an adjuster on the right side behind the headlight, a bit of a tight fit to get up to it.

Re: Head lamp adjustment...

I ran into the same issue. It was not until I read the owners manual and the Clymer manual, and set the light as suggested. What a difference.

I now use all my lights, all the time, without issue. HID, high beam, and Motolights. It works in reverse of what would you would have thought.

I have my adjustment all the way up. Seemed odd, but it does work. That is how it is supposed to be, unless you have to compensate for an unusually heavy load.

I lowered my head light by buying new shocks
