    My wife & daughter say the left passing light appears bright than the right one when I'm following them. All lights are factory Indian on our 2018 Cheiftain Darkhorse. What do I check & how do I check? Is it possible the adjustment is correct?

    It is just a guess, but is the light pointing higher than right side. Park the bike about twenty feet from a wall and turn on lights. Cover the headlight and see where the others line up. It might be simple to lower the housing.

    Is it apparent to you when you've got the bike parked looking at the fairing? Options follow:

    If you're picky, you can use a lux meter app for your phone (just make sure to cover the other lights)

    Swap the bulbs and see if there's a difference. If not, there's likely a voltage issue (unlikely). If so, bad bulb.
