Hi fellas,

This may very well be an obvious or silly question but I have never seen a headlight for a bike riding on the left side of the road (UK, Australia etc.) so I wouldn't know how different they are from the corresponding headlight meant for right hand side traffic.

Is there an easy way to tell them apart?

The headlight I'm thinking of is the 998 kind.

Thanks :smile2:

There is a small piece of metal inside the light which shields the light from on coming traffic and look like this:



If it is LHS then the stamped metal piece is one way, and RHS, the shape is mirrored. I can't remember if you can see this from the outside looking through the glass but if it is dark enough and you push the bike up against a wall, you can see which part of the light is shielded on the wall.

Thank you so much for your excellent explanation, Luke!

I will have a look inside the headlight housing to see which way the metal piece is mounted.

Thanks again :smile2:
