    Headlamp main beam adjustment

    Main beam on my 2014 Tiger sport is garbage I e. Compared to dipped beam lights which are fantastic,  the main beam just lights up the treetops with no visible improvement and no definitive strong 'beam of light' . Is it possible to adjust the main beam downwards without affecting dipped beam?

    If you look in the handbook, you'll see only one set of adjusters that only seem to alter the low beam.  High beam is not mentioned, so they are either linked in some way or there is no adjustment on the high beams.

    The high-beam globe may have been incorrectly installed.  It is possible to muck-up the installation.
    Remove the globe and CAREFULLY re-install it.
