My headlamps were not aimed at all properly from the factory. Problem 1. Problem 2 is the highbeam just seams weak to me. The low beam is adequate. I commute half city half highway, and the low beam is ok in either scenario. The high beam just doesn't seem to light the distant stuff up well. Maybe it is a bit too diffuse, or maybe I need to work on aiming it lower still.
Problem 3 is energy draw. Now that I have heated gear (jacket and gloves), at engine rpm below about 2500 there isn't enough alternator output with high beams on, so the battery is getting drained when sitting at a stop light. At highway speeds there is enough alternator power, but just. Meaning there is no spare power with high beams on if I were to add heated pants or aux lighting or anything else that needs much power at all. Reducing the power draw on the headlights would free up some power for elsewhere. This is not a big issue at all to me, but I could see for some folks who hang all kinds of aftermarket stuff on their bikes it could become an issue.
wow is there a beefier stator available??
