    Aiming new Matt Gecko LEDs

    So I have installed the Matt Gecko LEDs on my 2018, and since there are no adjusters for the lights, I was wondering what/how anyone with this light correctly aimed their lights?  Mine seem to be pointing to high.  Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks 😊

    Says in the manual and on the website to install spacers below the relevant bolt.

    I have not measured no. I don't know the distances from the wall to the bike to measure the cut off lines.

      Measure the distance from the ground to the center of the headlight with the bike  upright.
     Find some  level ground and a wall , I used my garage wall .
     Make a mark on the wall at the same height as your measurement from step 1.
     Park the bike 17 feet back , have someone sit on it to make sure its level
     Adjust the beam so that the top of the  beam is 2 inches below the mark  on the wall.
