Motorcycle Headlight and Auxiliary
Light Visor installation
Picture below shows a Honda
7" Headlight assembly.
Visor is installed.
4.5" Auxiliary light shown
with plain visor
- Remove total light assembly from the light housing. Usually a
couple of bolts on the side. For Headlights, pull the 3 pin connector off the light, (it
might pull off hard).
- Now you want to remove the light from the outer chrome ring.
With driving lights, a lot of times there are just clips holding the light in.
With headlights, a lot of times there are a couple of side screws holding the
light along with one clip. With a headlight you might have one adjustment
screw attaching from the outside ring to the light assembly, measure the
distance on this adjusting screw so you can set it back to that distance.
Remove holding screws then retaining clip.
- A second person to hold everything for re assembly makes life a lot
easier. Center the visor in the ring. Then insert the light assembly
into it. Hold everything together, have the second person hold the
assembly facing down on a bench. Re-install the retaining clip, this
is what holds the visor. Re install mounting bolts and adjustment screws.
- Note: For headlights, the visor should
seat against the headlamp glass and be held in place with the headlamp ring. Do
not attempt to fit it to the outer chrome housing ring, as it will not fit.
When finished you might have some slight movement on the headlight
the very top center. This depends on the type of bike and headlight.
For that custom chrome look,
finish off the wiring with some available
Chrome Cable Covering.
