    I agree the adjuster is ridiculous to get to and so frustrating especially if you decide to put a pillion on at night.
    My 800 Tiger had a handy little toggle you flipped and instantly the light adjustment was sorted for load and before someone says it...No the auto preload does not correctly adjust to same height as solo.
    On solo I'm on tip toes and with a pillion I'm flat footed.

    I stuck a flat piece of blue tack to the knob and took an imprint then 3D printed a little " special tool " heated up an old hex bit and stuck in in the back.
    Nice and easy to adjust now.

    I'm happy to share the 3D printer file if anybody would like it.

    I'm also interested in the 3D printer file.

    I have finally designed an 3D-printed extender and a key to access and turn the headlight angle control. Today I was able (still patiently) to lower the beam  :467:!

    So now you're going to add a ratchet mechanism, right?  :001:

    I could use the .STL file(s), please. Got a nice 3D printer at work.  :467:

    I just realised after 3 attempts that the file type is not supported in the " share File " list.

    Please PM me with your email address or another way to send the 3D printer files

    Excellent advice guys, been trying to adjust my headlamp but was following the manual, dealer couldn't sort it either. 20 min shed time this morning and the low beam is now pointing in the right direction and hopefully I’m not spotting Koalas in trees on high beam.
