Lighting for Spain
« on: 22 July, 2019, 09:56:10 PM »
Looking for a solution to change the UK headlight to European spec. Needs to point to the right.
Many thanks

Hi Higgins,

It's customary to introduce yersen in the new members section with a bit of info' about you & yer bike year/model first off.

Do your lights dip to left, or just down?

Hey Higgins  :405:
My 2007/2008 MKI Tiger came with an asynchronous beam pattern, for either side of the road riding. If you don't have the same as standard, you'll need to change the reflectors or perhaps get some lens stickers.

Might be OK as you are  :031:

Or if like me you are heading Spain at the end of September, don't bother.

Ive never come across a bike with an asymmetric beam pattern.   Theyve always just dipped flat down, so it doesnt matter which side of the road youre on.

Might be some out there I guess - but Ive never seen one.   What does your handbook say about it?

When I imported a bike from a right sided driving country, I was told by the importer that I would need to change the headlamp reflector module, in order to comply with driving on the other side of the road. When I asked Triumph, they told me that the model I was importing was suitable for either side of the road. Perhaps it is the same for all Tigers ? Triumph implied it was model revision specific?

Where you going? we are in the Picos, Santiago and northern Portugal 20th onwards. Keep yer eyes peeled for a matt black TIgger, Street Triple and a FZ1!  :152:

No changes to my lights for the trip either
