I was w bit disappointed with the lighting performance on my Initiale, so I tweaked the adjusters about half a turn anti clockwise, to raise them up a bit, now much happier with what I can see, also no flashes from oncoming traffic, but went and had them checked anyway, the guy said they were on the low side! so he's tweaked them on the optical measuring gear and I'm much happier, Just out of interest, which bulbs did you put in, 4300k or 6000k. good luck with sorting it out.

I have tried both the 4300k and the 6000k and found the light from the 4300k better with my eyes.
I have treid tweaking the hieght a little but like you did i am going to get it done properly.

6000K will be whiter than the 4300 but with less output.
After 150 hours the 4300 bulbs will season to around 5400K.
