I thought I would post the results of my low beam adjustment problem.
I pulled the nose fairing off and took off the headlight cover panel. Both clips were still in place. I removed the HID bulb and replaced it looking to see if it might have been canted in the mounting in some way. I made sure it was not canted and connected the retainer clips. I was able to connect up the HID module and the headlight power connector while holding onto the nose fairing. I turned on the Hi and Low Beams and shined them on my garage door. I still had the same problem, the top edge of the Low Beam was at the Hi Beam level.
I then un-clipped the retaining clips and moved the bulb around canting it up/down and in/out by hand to see the affect on the Low Beam aim point. Yes I did survive the experience
though some might argue the point. I could only drop the Low Beam aim point by canting the bulb upward in the fixture. This puts the radiating element higher and slightly less deep into the headlight. Seeing as how we are talking about a reflection from a mirror behind the radiating element this makes sense.
To accomplish this for the "fix" I needed a way to put a spacer under the locator tab on the HID bulb which is at the top of the holding fixture. What I did was cut strips of adhesive backed aluminum tape just narrow enough fit into the notch in the housing for the bulb locator tab. I chose aluminum tape so it wouldn't compress over time. I kept adding layers of tape until I got the aim point I wanted. I think I ended up with twelve layers of aluminum tape. Both the bulb retainer clips are still functional, with a little encouragement
, so the cant isn't to radical.
I have only ridden about 100 miles at night so far but I have not been flashed yet. The Low Beam HID is a great improvement and I did not have to sacrifice my Hi Beam. Not an elegant solution but it solved my problem. The components look great but I am not sure I would recommend this kit I bought off eBay from an installation perspective. Only time will tell how it holds up.
Until then it's SHINE ON Rufus
