    hi there if you can remove the light and put in a few spacers, only on the top screws,then put it back in that should bring the beam down a few more center meaters.

Ducati 996 no headlights.bulbs are good replaced relay next to battery all other lights are working


Hi, Paul if your headlight is not working, keeps burning out or is dim the first thing you need to check is the headlight bulb for damaged filaments then check your light circuit fuse, that being said the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ground or power supply wire to headlight bulb socket.
2. Worn, chaffed, or broken wires in the light circuit.
3. Corroded, broken, or loose pins/sockets in wire connectors.
4. Faulty hi/lo beam switch.
5. Faulty ignition switch.
6. Fuse is good but no continuity on both sides.
7. Faulty wiring between battery positive and headlight bulb socket.
8. Weak charging alternator/generator.
9. Faulty voltage regulator/rectifier, overcharging.

Suddenly High Beam is dead on 2000 vfr. Both bulbs OK on low beam, both bulbs out on high beam.


Obviously headlights can fail but if you are sure this is not it then get an electrical meter and check for the voltage coming out when in low beam and then high beam. If this tests OK, you have a ground or bad bulbs.

Hello, the O/S headlamp aim is very low and has failed the MOT for this, I have tried turning the adjuster on the back of the headlamp unit but it doesn't seem to do anything, would this have adjusted the...


Hi,

Even if you could locate the correct adjuster, you will not be able to align the beam in accordance with MOT's requirements.

Only with the use of an approved Optical machine, will you be able to correctly adjust the beam of your headlights.

Unfortunately, this task is best left for the professionals only. A garage with the appropriate Optical machine can do this adjustment, for a small fee.


Cheers,

Headlight adjustment


he airbox will come off pretty easy you have to pulle off the breatherhose from under the airbox it goes behind the rear cylinder. also the funnels on the injectors need to be taken off. I am not sure what kind of funnels there are on a 748 compared to a 996, but you on a 996, you only have to twist them for a 1/4 turn, no more, and then pull, pretty hard, to get them off.,,,

Headlights, high beams


No as a rule they don't fail at the same time, in fact it is unusual for the hi beam to fail ever, the problem is most likely in the turn signal/multifunction switch, this does cause your problem, have seen it many times.
