    Default Headlight adjustment

    I have a 2003 Valkyrie trike that I recently had a 6 degree rake kit installed. I don't normally ride at night, but Saturday went on a 400 mile trip and it got dark before I got home. My headlight was shining into the treetops instead of the road!! Thankfully my spotlights were working. The headlight is bolted to the lower triple tee. Any suggestions on how to adjust it? Thanks in advance to all who reply.

    I'm guessing there is a can that is bolted to the triple tree. In the can there should be some adjustment. Might not be enough for a 6 degree rake.

    A couple of posted pictures would help us to give better guidance.

    There should be 2 adjusting screws on either side of the headlamp cover. Phillips screw driver might give you the adjustment you need.

    Mine was just the opposite, when I had my Roadsmith added to my 2012 Goldwing,
    my headlights were to low, nothing but a minor adjustment by my trike converter guy.

    I can't remember how to adjust the headlight on a Valk, mine was an Interstate, so different from yours, but if you go to valkyrieforum.com & ask your question on the 1500 Tech board, they will tell you how. Stan
