is headlight beam neutral or biased?
« on: March 10, 2019, 03:39:50 PM »
Hi Guys

A bloke on the Tiger group on Facebook insists that the beam is biased to one side, everybody on this forum says it is neutral. I have looked in the manual and the owners handbook but nothing is mentioned.
Can anyone confirm this fact please  :084:

The headlights are adjustable left and right also. I guess one could adjust the beam center left or right. From the factory the beam seems centered to me.  The side of a brick or block building at night is a handy test place. Numerous U Tube and google hits for the details. Takes some fiddling to get the bike perpendicular to the wall, but a string and tape measure is all that is needed. Then just count the bricks to the edges  of the beam. Your answer will be apparent.
