Just picked up & installing the Yamaha light bar on my 650.
To anyone who has these - Am I missing something here?
The lamps use a hollow-body bolt that installs from whithin the lamp body - down thru a couple of beveled washers and the light bar - into the turn sig adapter.
The turn sig adapter has a slot in it for the wires to exit (so it needs to stay in a fairly fixed position for the wires to exit and go into end of light bar).
So if I'm looking at this correctly, the only way to tighten/adjust these lamps is to remove trim and lamp????
I'm guessing the best way to do this is to just snug them up - install lamp - make adjustment - make an alignement mark on outside somewhere - remove lamp - loosen (to dump some loctite in there) - wrench them tight (using alignement mark to keep them where they need to be) - reinstall lamps & trim.
That's basically what you have to do to align them. I made mine straight on while the bar was off the bike. All I really cared about was they be well seen since I don't ride at night. You can see mine for a long distance away.

It's not exactly the best idea, what I did was snug the bolts so there is still some movement. Take the bike out to the street and aim the light where I wanted them. Bring the bike back in the garage and tighten being carefull not to move the lights.
