Re: adjusting headlights (Sk8 Ma BaNaNa)

That I can't remember. I think clockwise goes up. Just remove the cover and watch the screw inside of the headlight assembly to see what direction it turns while you turn the adjustment either way. If you can't make out what I mean (I'm not so good explaining things) just measure the height of the beam reflection before and after adjusting it. Hope this helps.

Re: adjusting headlights (Sk8 Ma BaNaNa)

A good idea is pulling up to a wall or garage door, and make a pencil mark at the top where the beam cuts off (easy to do b/c of our projector lenses)...then use that as a reference point for where the beam position was.

White screws turn the black ones, so either one works. If you see your white ones turn while the black ones do not, turn the black ones directly. Or if your white ones refuse to turn, remove the white ones then turn the black ones directly. White ones turn anti clockwise to aim up IIRC, black ones are the opposite direction.

Can more people confirm if it is #2? I tried this adjustment today and it did raise the light.. but I am skeptical that it also turned the headlight inwards more. Please any more info would be good. O I also turned the black hex clockwise to raise it.
