headlight adjustment and aiming

Anyone have there service manual handy? Looking for the hradlight aiming specs, distance from wall and height to aim for.

I got to work and had a co-worker point out my low beam wasn't working.

I had to loosen off the bucket since my windscreen (buell M2) prevents the lens from being removed from the bucket. (599 headlight setup)

Found a loose connection on the low beam bulb, seated it and its good to go now.

Since I am on backshift I will be heading home at midnight, figure I should aim it properly before heading out since I have the tools and time to do it.

Anybody got some tips, tricks or specs?

No tips in the manual. I adjusted mine while I was riding just pushed on the bucket

Ok cool. I already lined it up half decent from 25ft off a flat vertical surface. Guess I will tweak it on the fly on the way home.

There is marking on the headlight and on the brackets. I line the two up and it looks great!

The easy way to do this is to ride behind a car at normal distance and have the top of the cutoff beam on the edge of their boot lid. No higher as it could hit the outside mirrors, and high enough to get the most benefit.
