Headlights

Good evening everyone. I was wondering if anyone could help. I recently bought a 2013 D675. I live in Spain but bought the bike in England. I'm now going through the process of registering it. I'd like to know if anyone has ever changed the headlights in order to drive on the right and if so, how problematic is it? Is it as simple as swapping the left and right lights or wires over? Thanks

Yea, there's probably a way to do it. There's also a way to have both headlights on with switching between low/high beam still, which imo is better, but you may need an aftermarket part for it. You can even use the corner running lights as turn signals, probably with the same piece of kit that lets you run both lamps at the same time, but I can't recall exactly. If you search online you will find it I bet, I even think there's a thread around of folks who have done the same thing.

I'd have to check, but I believe you can swap the left and right wires without much fuss (i.e. spending a lot of money).

Then redirect the left and right lights using the adjustment screws to where the opposite light was. Standing the bike upright in front of a white wall or garage door will be good for this.

You need the reflectors for the correct side of the road you drive on. Without that the headlight cutoff will be on the wrong side and not light up the side of the road and will glare in on coming traffic on the other side.
