Re: Headlight conversion template
This is a regular topic on the British BMW Club website. The wisdom generated is a bit patchy.There are views that on the standard headlight, a stick-on option will eventually cause heat build up and a cracked glass. The bike manual says that altering the throw of the beam from UK/Ireland RHD to Europe/USA LHD is something a dealer can sort out, thought I've no idea what they do, and if it was for a single trip you'd presumably need to pay for it to be changed back when you got home.
My own experience leads me to question why to bother altering the throw. I travel in France regularly, and the most I've ever done is to drop the angle of the beam down a bit when travelling fully loaded. I've never seen any KLT riders from France or Germany in the UK who have altered the throw of their own headlamp to RHD.
When I had an R1100RT, I used a stick on converter, but found it gave such a vague beam, that I eventually stopped using it.
Might be interesting to find out what a BMW dealer does (allegedly) to alter the beam.
