Headlight adjustment
« on: September 28, 2017, 08:57:16 PM »
Ok, here's a question: my 2002 Varadero XL 125 needed headlight adjustment. So, I adjusted them accordingly using the little black knob under the headlights fairing, yes? Ok. So far, so good. However, I turned the damn knob too far and it's now flopping around loose and I cannot get the damn thing to screw back in! The thread just will NOT 'bite' on anything. Is there a nut that I have lost and can't access? Or a thread built in and I have to persevere? I've been fiddling with the cursed thing for half an hour now and am getting annoyed with it... I know it's not a massive issue. But it's REALLY annoying!

Unfortunately, you are going to have to take the headlamp unit apart to re-seat the thread, as you need to align both parts and apply pressure to get the threads engaged again.

If you accidentally cross-thread the adjusters, you could easily snap the mounting points.

Before adjusting headlamps, make sure the bike is loaded as for normal riding (including rider and passenger) and that the rear suspension pre-load is correctly set.
