headlight adjuster screw

Post by stephenmark19 » Sat Jul 28, 2018 10:48 pm

The headlight adjuster screw on my 2017 SDR is constantly getting loose and coming out while riding. has anyone else had this issue? I don't want to over tighten the thing. super annoying. I was just curious if anyone else has dealt with this.

It is just plastic, and I cross threaded mine. Had to get a new one, all good.

thanks Spiff. I was quite surprised that it was such a cheap little plastic barrel. I replaced it and got a back up for when it breaks again. Thank you so much for the feedback!!!

Yeah, I cracked that plastic barrel over tightening mine, got a new one. I still think I screwed something up installing the new one which is ridiculous seeing how simple of a item it is, yet I also think it could have been designed better. Anywho, mine seems fine now yet I dread if I have t take it apart again, LOL.
