My thoughts exactly, anyone can wind up the headlamp or load the rear to raise it.

Default Re: Headlight Modulator, Yes or No?

Not sure I am following the suggestion to raise the beam angle ?? Is this simply to shine more directly in oncoming traffic's eyes ?? If I understand correctly, I think that would be simply blinding, and I doubt it would create anything more than a negative reaction. Funny,,, when I got my ST,,, the fork mounted lighting was angled up a bit on both sides, so it seemed intentional. I adjusted them both back down so that down the roads surface was their focal point. They are very bright,, 50w each,, with a wide beam dispersion. Tipped down a bit,, the still present a strong near field illumination while creating a visual light triangle (for what that is worth, but I will take it).

Just so there is no confusion,, headlight modulation does not depend on shining a blinding beam directly into another drivers eyes,, of course. If a beam, whether it is modulated or not is improperly aimed, then that needs to be corrected before it contributes to an accident. Cat'

I didn't mean that, It was more a reaction to you stating you had more comments regarding the brightness of your lights on the ST than you ever had with your years of riding other bikes.
