    I have a Vision coming from the U.S. to me in New Zealand. The question is, do your Vision headlights dip horizontally or horizontally and to the left or to the right depending on which side of the road you drive on? Why I am asking is in the Service manual for a 2008 Vision it states when the headlight is dipped "the low beam pattern spreads farther right than the high beam (U.S. & Canada)." A headlight that dips to the right is a no go here. I can see only two part number for a Vision headlight from 2008 onwards. One being halogen and the other a HID headlight. There is no mention of an export model e.g. for the U.K. I cannot remember what the low beam pattern was on my previous NZ new 2008.

    You got me. I certainly don't notice it being more right than left. Seems even to me on both of mine.

    The double bulb headlight plus the cyclops light shines light everywhere.

    I spent a lot of time focusing the LED bulbs (in the trash now) when I put the bike back together a couple years ago, I didn't notice the light favoring one side.

    There was a Euro spec export headlight. It has the cyclops blanked out be cause it is illegal in several countries. I don’t know if the aim is any different. As others stayed, I don’t notice much difference right to left on mine when I adjusted it after replacement. Adjust ment is for up and down.

    I rarely use the cyclops except in pitch black with no other traffic around 'usually'. It serves as a 'backup' for when the halogens quit glowing. A literal black eye on a Vision when it's time to change them.
