It's right fearless. Mine are on on dipped and off on main beam, the manwell confirms it as well.:56:
Thanks for the input I guess it is right and the cops don't bother me so I guess I won't worry.
It's the proper way for them to work, nothing wrong at all.
If you really want the driving lights on with the high beam, there a way of doing it if you are handy and can work with wiring.
You could always utilize the extra switch on the left to disarm this feature and go back to the original one when you wanted to.
The high beam is fine but the low beam gets me flashed alot at night so I was thinking they should be off on low beam, I will leave them as is thanks for the link in case I get an itch.
"OFF" on low beam meaning turned off ? There's a switch down on the steering head nacelle to do just that, I'm sure you are aware of that. You can also re aim the driving lights which I feel is why you get flashed at night, they are probably high and shining into the oncoming traffic.
To re aim the passing lights you have to drop the directional markers with the removal of the two allen bolts in the top of their base facing upwards. A long "T" handle allen wrench works well here. Once you drop them , you'll find a 9/16 nut on the base of the driving light stem in there with the wire going through the center of the mount post. I cut a slot in a deep 9/16 socket so this wire can pass through the slot and you can get the socket on the nut properly (see pic below).
Loosen the nut just a bit and adjust the passing lamps to a more desirable position. I use the horizontal bars on the garage door to do this and aim them close to the low beam shining on the door.
It's best done at night so you can roll the bike onto the road to test their positioning before putting things back together.
