    Question Too low, low beam.

    Any Busa riders have the problem with the low beam on their bikes being too low?I went to my dealer and the mech said another customer with the same bike had a similar complaint.After cranking the headlite up all the way it seemed to be still low.Any solutions,can I put in higher wattage bulb safely?

    If you're talking about the little cutoff height adjustment then what you see is what you get. Low beams use a sharp cut off line. Aim your bike at a wall and go from low to high and you'll see what I mean. It's not a brightness adjustment and adding a higher wattage bulb won't make any difference.

    The idea is to set that cutoff line to about waist height at a 10 meter distance so you don't shine your light into oncoming driver's eyes. If you get a lot of high beam flashes from cars then it's probably aimed too high.
    A backyard mechanic without a service manual is just like a hooker without a lamp pole.... they are both in the dark.
