Bob, the manuals for the DL,s that I have (owners 650,1000 and OEM 02 DL1000's say nothing about headlamp adjustment according to measurements.
Chris, all I can say is that if you want to do it quickly just adjust the lowest screws closets to the wheel on each side of the fairing. This will adjust the vertical. I would be guessing which way to turn them.
I find it a great learning experince to have adjusted the head lights for the first time. When you have adjust them to your liking you are satisfied for a job well done. The DL series are fairly excessible to work on.
From touring on the DL's adjustable headlights would be my choice for an
inprovement in the design. You can buy lots of after market parts for the DL's, but making the headlights easily adjustable has to come from Suzuki.
You do not want to piss off cagers before you have over taken them.
My last trip a mini van pulled off the road and he flipped me the Bird.
I just shrugged my shoulders passing him, not knowing why he was pissed. You pretty much know when the truck in front of you slams their brakes on for no reason that your headlights may have pissing them off.
I wish for Christmas for Suzuki to put remotely adjusted headlamps on the DL series.
