Headlights to bright
« on: Aug 13, 2021, 05:15 PM »
Hi everyone i have a 20 plate versys 1000 the problem i have is the front headlight is to powerful im getting flashed by drivers because the headlight lights up both sides of the road plus the top of roads signs i asked Kawasaki at the first service to dip it down but its just as bad there seems to beto much spread of light . When put on main beam it hardly makes any difference just goes higher .has anyone had the same problem  it must be down to the led lights ..

See this link to the V1k dedicated forum, where lots of the Mk3 V1k owners are having the same problem with the beam aim setup that comes from the Factory  :031:

Hadn't ridden my 2018 bike in the dark,  but when i took it in for its first MOT in March they had to adjust the headlight beam. They said it probably came out of the factory like that.
