How to Adjust the Headlights on a Honda Gold Wing


Honda’s touring motorcycle, the Gold Wing, is equipped with one or two headlights depending on the model. The process for adjusting the headlights is the same for both Gold Wing variations. There are two different controls for headlight adjustment on most Gold Wings. The manual control broadens the adjustment range of the automatic control. The adjustment process is relatively simple for Gold Wing owners who are familiar with the parts and mechanisms of their motorcycle. It is best to perform this task close to the time when the sun sets so that you can make the most accurate adjustments. It is also helpful to have an assistant.

Tools Used: Tools, Flashlight, 12 mm socket, Long socket extension, Tape measure

Adjust Headlights

Park your Gold Wing between 25 and 30 feet away from a wall or garage door. Locate your automatic headlight adjustment control on the bottom corner of the left fairing. Turn the adjustment dial clockwise as far as it will go.
