Is the rear pre-load already maxxed out? If not then just increase it when loaded up.

Increasing the preload will keep the rear from sagging which will keep your headlight from pointing higher.

Or adjust your headlight down with adjuster screw.

dealer told me they are not adjustable but I found a manual download and in publication no M11 it asks the dealer to print off adjustment instructions and give to customer. so sorted cheers

the top of the spot is measured on the bike and the top of the beam is measured 5 meters from the bike and this
should be the same height exactly

Geddy did you ever find out how to adjust your lights? My high beam is aimed very high and I'd like to lower it. Thank you
