Headlight beam point to sky
Hi guys and girls, just joined this forum (at last) to pick your brains. The beam of my headlight has gone radically, pointing up into the sky, way beyond fine adjustment. I see that the hex knob (part 2 in the illustration) is missing. I think this was only for fine tuning. Took the bike to a bike mechanic to test the beam for height direction etc and all he could only say was, "its broke".
BMW here in Scotland, sent me their parts diagram of the headlight and said judging by this, the white lever and the hex knob is sold only, integral with the headlight costing, nearly a grand! Ouch!
Perhaps I should mention the bike is an 09, K1300GTSE. I don't know if it has Xenon lights on it and if that was standard on the SE. I do know before the problem above, the light was the best on any bike I've had and as good as my 08, Merc! Is there a simple way to tell the difference, please?
So, has anyone been inside the headlight and knows how the headlight beam could be so wrong, lighting up the sky, please? Is there a fix for this, please?
Thanking you in anticipation.
