The lighting system: a part of your motorbike to maintain
On many occasions, you may have to ride your motorbike in poor visibility conditions (rain, night, fog, etc.). To reduce the risk of accidents, you need to ensure that your motorbike's lighting system is effective. This requires regular maintenance.
Maintenance of the lighting system
As a general rule, it is advisable to check that your lights (dipped beam, main beam, indicators, rear position light, brake light, etc.) are working properly every day before you set off. In addition to the daily checks, you should maintain your lighting system at regular intervals to keep each component in top condition and to identify any signs of wear. Maintenance includes cleaning the headlamp optics and checking that the controls are working properly. If you notice a drop in performance, it is best to replace them as soon as possible to ensure your safety during your journeys and to comply with current legislation. For your information, the law requires motorcyclists to have one or two low beam headlights and to install approved turn signals. Apart from the presence of dipped and indicator lights, the law requires the installation of bulbs, LED or not, that comply with the standards in force. For the main and dipped beam, the lamp used must not dazzle other road users. As regards the indicators, their intensity must not exceed 400 candelas and clearly defined distances must be respected (24 cm at the front and 18 cm at the rear).
