I'd like to adjust my headlight to aim higher. I know there is a screw on either side, but I don't know which one does what and I don't want to mess with it without knowing first. I thought the owner's manual would say, but I didn't see it in there. So, when facing the headlight, which side aims up and down? Thanks!

I would grab a pen and paper to note the number of turns you make in either direction. Try one adjuster and if it's not the correct one, you can simply look at your notes and return it to the stock setting. Good luck! Jevers

I had a heck of a time with those two little adjustment screws when all I was trying to do was remove the bezel (protip: those are the wrong screws if you need to remove the bezel :| ). They adjust the tension on the springs that suspend the lamp inside the headlight bowl. I can't recall whether it's clockwise=increase tension or counterclockwise=increase tension, but it'll be apparent which way the bulb is headed when you start adjusting. If you want the bulb to tilt upward, you'll adjust both screws equally.

Left side screw when facing headlight for vertical adjustments.
Turn screw clockwise / right to raise the beam.
Turn screw counterclockwise / left to lower the beam.

Right side screw when facing headlight for horizontal adjustments.
Turn screw clockwise / right to move beam right.
Turn screw counterclockwise / left to move beam left.
