    UK/Euro headlight?

    Probably been covered but after a quick search I cant see an answer, so..

    Are the 2017 GS lights dipped left, or just an even spread left/right and ok for right side of road at night? I know there used to be reflector kits to deflect the light over to the other side of the road.
    Thinking about a permanent move to France and want to take my GS with me but not wanting to pay for massively expensive headlight conversion!

    It dips straight down. Well, that's my excuse.

    My car also dips straight down and needs no adjustment - says the handbook. Same make...

    My understanding was that the headlight is universal. Try OEM parts finder and see if the headlamp has different part numbers for EU/UK countries.

    Well my 2018 Rallye TE doesn’t have the horizontal refelector adjustment that my 2015 bike had - it only has the vertical adjustment - my dealer wasn’t aware of this difference and said that the beam spread was ‘flat’. So one assumes that no modification is required for driving on the right on the later bikes ???????.
