    anyone know exactly what the score is on this one?

    i have a scooter i've had since i was 17 (now 23) and it sat about for a few years not doing much and obviously needed an MOT done. because of where i now work i can't park a car easily or cheaply whereas a scooter would be simpler.

    anyways, lights is the only thing they test for scooters here in northern ireland (by the looks of the test sheet) and mine failed for being too high, which i kinda expected before i sent it in because they've always pointed far too high. i'm able to adjust them myself and my scooters maintenance manual says the lights should point just below the height of the light source at a distance of 10 metres. however this is just what the (italian) manufacturers book says from 2001 and i've no idea if that is the regulation here.

    anyone know exactly how the lights should be orientated. as usual the internets has too much information on it that any search term brings up a thousand useless results.

    there are several diagrams http://www.ukmot.com/1-6.asp#Text_top so if you can decipher them :p:

    The MoT tester should have been able to adjust them???
    I just drive up to the garage door and take measurments that way...
