ADJUSTING THE HEADLIGHT BEAM VERTICALLY

WARNING

Do not use the vehicle if the lights are not functioning properly.

Do not use the vehicle if the headlight is adjusted incorrectly . This could temporarily blind oncoming cars, and also reduce the rider’s ability to see any obstacle along the road while riding at night.

It is always advisable to reduce speed when riding at night, so as to have the time necessary to avoid any obstacle and to adapt to the poorer visibility that inevitably results from darkness. Failure to observe this warning can cause you to collide with another object, with consequent risk of serious injury or even death.

NOTE The procedure described here is in compliance with the Italian standard that establishes the maximum height of the headlight beam.

For vehicles used in other countries, you must conform with local regulations.

To quickly check the correct adjustment of the beam, place the vehicle on flat ground, 32.81 ft (10 m) away from a wall.

Turn on the low beam, sit on the vehicle and make sure that the beam projected on the wall is slightly under the horizontal line of the headlight (about 9/10th of the total height).

To adjust the headlight beam vertically:

Working from the rear of the front part of the fairing.

CAUTION

Do not force the screw beyond its limits.

Adjust the screw (1).

Turn the screw clockwise to adjust the right beam higher (upwards).

Turn the screw counterclockwise to a d j u s t t h e r i g h t b e a m l o w e r (downwards).

Repeat the process for the right beam.

WARNING

Make sure that the vertical adjustment of the headlight beam is correct.

HEADLIGHT SCREENING

In case headlights are to be taped (for using the vehicle on the track), it is r e c o m m e n d e d t o d i s c o n n e c t t h e connectors of the headlamps to prevent the lens from overheating because they are not cooled by air.

CAUTION

S e c u r e a n d i n s u l a t e p r e v i o u s l y disconnected wires so that they do not hinder handlebar movement and are insulated from water.

CAUTION

Restore electric connections before using the vehicle on the public road.

ADJUSTING THE HEADLIGHT BEAM HORIZONTALLY

WARNING

Do not use the vehicle if the lights are not functioning properly. Do not use the vehicle if the headlight is adjusted incorrectly. This could temporarily blind oncoming cars, and also reduce the rider’s ability to see any obstacle along the road while riding at night. It is always advisable to reduce speed when riding at night, so as to have the time necessary to avoid any obstacle and to adapt to the poorer visibility that inevitably results from darkness. Failure to observe this warning can cause you to collide with another object, with consequent risk of serious injury or even death.

NOTE The terms “right” and “left” are referred to the rider seated on the vehicle in the normal riding position.

It is possible to adjust the horizontal position both to the right and to the left.

Working from the rear left side of the front fairing, turn the screw (2).

CAUTION

Do not force the screws beyond their limits.

Working from the rear side of the front part of the fairing.

With the screw (2) to the left side of the dashboard (left beam):

turn the screw clockwise to adjust the beam to the left;

turn the screw counterclockwise to adjust the left beam to the right.

With the screw (2) to the right side of the dashboard (right beam):

turn the screw clockwise to adjust the right beam to the right;

turn the screw counterclockwise to adjust the right beam to the left.

WARNING

M a k e s u r e t h a t t h e h o r i z o n t a l adjustment of the headlight beam is correct. Different jurisdictions have different requirements for horizontal headlight aiming. Make sure that you c o n f o r m w i t h t h e r u l e s o f t h e jurisdictions in which your vehicle is being used.

CHANGING

THE HEADLIGHT BULBS

Carefully read page 129 (BULBS).

NOTE Before changing a bulb, check the fuses, see page 121 (CHANGING FUSES).

The headlight contains:

The headlight accommodates the following bulbs:

Two high-beambulbs (1).

Two low-beambulbs (2).

Two parking-lightbulbs (3).

The high - and low-beambulbs are identical. If the low beam is burned out and no spare bulb is available, it is possible to substitute thehigh-beambulb for the lowbeam bulb.

This should only be done to make it possible to ride a short distance at night to a shop where a new bulb can be obtained or home.
