I just took my R1 out tonight for the first time. Every car that past me high beamed me. I did notice the beam pattern is a bit high on the new R1's.

Did anyone experience this? and Does anyone know if the 04 low beams can be adjusted??

Is it different from the other models? Does it have headlight screws (possibly in the two corners of each headlight's back panel)?

Did you have your high beams on? :D I installed HID's in mine, and I can see the beam pattern quite clearly... It's actually but off at a certain point... Haven't had any problems at all....

I haven't seen at adjustments on mine... Nor does the owner's manual talk about any...

Screw em man. At least they see you!!! Don't worry about it. They can deal with the 10 sec it takes for you to pass them.

Weird... Mine is pretty low.... It's about where the license plate is... I'll double check tomorrow night to be sure tho...

You all are so funny! Take some quality time and look closely at your rig. Look into the headlight, essentially above the bulb in the reflector area and notice the little screw protruding thru. Point at it with your finger and keep your finger there, then look beyond your clip ons and line the bolt head up with your finger. That's the adjustment screw you're point'n at.

I upped my headlights somewhat to point into their faces. At least you know they can see you :hellobye !

Ride safe ya'll

These light are so bright. I feel bad for the people I follow who have to totally adjust their review cuz of me. I was following my girlfriend in her suv and I could tell that the whole car was lit up on the inside because of me.

I know its legal but it will prob piss a cop off if you are following them.
