4 Light­ing

Motorcycle News (UK) - - Mcn garage -

There’s noth­ing more frus­trat­ing than get­ting a fail on a small prob­lem, such as non­func­tion­ing lights. So check they’re all work­ing as they should. High and low beam are easy – check the tail light bulbs are work­ing too. In­di­ca­tors should flash am­ber, and the dash tell-tale needs to work too. Check the brake lights work on front and rear brake ap­pli­ca­tion – if the rear isn’t work­ing, you may need to ad­just the switch to suit the lever travel. Ex­am­ine the se­cu­rity of con­nec­tions to avoid in­ter­mit­tent faults. The head­light needs to be aimed cor­rectly – a friendly tester might let you make tweaks if you can’t set it up at home. Be warned: af­ter­mar­ket HID con­ver­sions are an in­stant fail too.
