How to Adjust Suzuki Boulevard C50 Headlight

Updated July 20, 2017

The Suzuki C50 Boulevard's headlight is situated at the front of the vehicle and is very important for safely operating your motorcycle. A misaligned headlight can be just as bad as a faulty headlight, or worse as it can blind oncoming traffic. Thankfully, Suzuki has included two adjustment screws on the headlight itself. One of the screws adjusts the headlight horizontally and the other adjusts the headlight vertically.

Park the C50 approximately seventeen feet away from a blank wall, such as a garage door.

Measure the distance between the ground and the centre of the headlight with a tape measure.

Mark this distance on the blank wall using tape.

Use the Phillips-head screwdriver to adjust the two screws on the headlight until the beam is directly in line with the mark on the wall, but two inches below so as to not blind oncoming traffic.

Things You'll Need

  • Tape measure
  • Masking tape
  • Phillips-head screwdriver
