Ì have a Tiger 800 XCX 2018. The manual says on page 182 under 'Bulb Headlight Unit' that each (emphasis mine) headlight can be adjusted vertically and horizontally.
I only found one set of those controls, on the right headlight and they seem to adjust both lights.
Is that a manual error or what am I missing?

My 2012 manual states:
Each headlight can be adjusted by means of vertical & horizontal screws located on the rear of each headlight.
In addition, the headlight is equipped with an easy adjuster to allow the vertical adjustment to be corrected when the motorcycle is fully loaded."
FYI~ I just turned the "vertical" screw about 15 times. The headlight beam never changed. So, I turned it back 25 times. No change. So, I returned the screw to where it was originally.
Tried the 2013 Roadie. Same result (no change in beam height.)

So, either those hexagonal screws don't do anything, or both my bikes are busted evenly.
No one has ever messed with that adjuster, since the bikes were new...except me, right now. :oops:
