Re: [ST] Headlight adjustment

When I got my 03 ST the beams were pretty much pointing at the ground (so
much for proper set up from that dealer!).  I took one of those tiny 3 inch
ratchets and a 10 mm socket and had no problem sliding my hand in and
adjusting the beams up.  Just take your time.  For measuring, I aimed my
bike at my garage wall at an approximate distance equivalent to the MA state
inspection distance and would do an adjustment, sit on the bike turn the key
on and see and repeat until desired results.  I did both beams at the same
time by counting the number of turns on the ratchet - it was close enoungh.
You need to recheck when it is dark and also take a few laps around the
block to fine tune it.  Just make sure you do not go too high or you will
piss off the cages and won't pass inspection if they check that where you

Subject: [ST] Headlight adjustment

Hey Kids--Anyone here have a good rule of thumb for adjusting the headline
beam location on their ST? Mine seems pretty low. 
  And is it possible to adjust the beam vertically without removing the
guage cluster? I have not tried to jam my hand between the cowling and the
cluster yet.
