Is it possible to adjust the width of the high beam?

Recommended Posts

I work 2nd shift so I end up riding my bike home at night. The road home is fun and curvy at times which has me wanting a wider high beam. Anyone know of a way to widen the high beam? The low beam seems great to me aside from the vibrations.

Perhaps add some me spotlights, I’ve read comments that the lights are poor at night but I’ve not ridden at night yet

They are great in a straight line, but they aren't so great while turning. Maybe it's because I'm used to my wr250r where the lights move with the bars.

I am waiting for these to arrive. I do most of my riding at night, and was looking for something mounted to the steering column so that they turn in the direction of the bars, showing me whats inside my corners.

Pictured is the high fender mount, the low fender mounting bracket would go where that fender is.

I've been eyeing those as well. Please post your impressions on the installation and performance of these. Thanks.

Will do! (They are also going to keep me road legal as I can’t be bothered to keep my bike at the dealers long enough to process my headlight warranty claim.)

Rugged Roads do a yolk mounting plate too so that the light turn with the steering.

I have the cyclops lights on the OEM foglight brackets, you don't need them to turn with the wheel, they have such a good spread/spot ration to start, they light up the sides plenty, plus the tops of trees! I had AUX lights move with the forks on my last bike, never made a difference, you should be looking far into the corner much before the lights anyway

My buddy @PNWTEN has the cyclops lights too and they are freaking bright and awesome. They go dim and bright along with the headlight which is very convenient.
