Hi John,

Welcome to the forum.

I found that it all depends on where your spot/fog lights are installed on your scooter.

When I aim mine, I find a flat location in front of a garage door. Back away from the door about 6 feet, put my scooter on the center stand and adjust the spot light beam to the same hight as the low beam on the door. Then take a night ride to test them out. Make any final adjustment on the road.

OK This is a start. My fog/spot Piaa lights are mounted where the reflectors were on the front forks.

Hi John,

Measure the distance from the center of your lights lens to the ground or floor. Place a piece of tape that distance from the ground up on your garage door or wall. Sit on you scooter and be 6 feet away from your tape. Adjust your lights so that the center of the light beam is in the center of your tape. Once you get it just right, tighten your lights. There you go.

I hope this helps
