The only thing you still have to do is to change the mainlight by a Xenon.

The following clip is not really a close shave...............but it 'might' have been to a less experienced rider if they had attempted to overtake the Vauxhall Astra as it was turning left  :110:

I have my Givi spots on  and was wearing a Spada jacket with fluorescent panels  :112:

The headlamp refletor is designed for halogen lighting not xenon. All you will do is dazzle oncoming traffic no matter how much you adjust it as the beam pattern will be incorrect with the factory reflector that is fitted. To get the correct beam pattern for xenon you also need to change the reflector so it is a projector type.
