Well a day late and a dollar short for me. Dunno how I missed this one. It would have been helpful to have read this a few weeks back. But I was in Russia.  I have a gen 2 now and since getting it, I have noticed a flickering headlamp. It seemed more than just the bike moving on the suspension. But moving the back of the lamp unit I couldn't find anything loose. Then last week when looking to see if I could put LEDs in there I removed the bulb cap from the light box to find that indeed, mine had popped off the joint.  Never tried adjusting it so I didn't cause this. I did try to pop it back on by using a right angle trim tool, but didn't want to break anything. In the end I used a hot air gun on medium heat to just warm the parts through to make them less likely to break and with slight pressure from behind the ball and socket snapped back into place.

Went out last night and it's cured. I'm no longer flashing!
