Headlamp mounts changed

Headlamp mounts changed

The headlamp mounts first fitted were not ideal as the headlamp was too close to the nose cone.  Revised headlamp mounts were fabricated and the headlamps were moved higher and further out.  Careful planning and testing was required to ensure that the forward tilting nose cone cleared the headlamp as well as avoiding the mudguard when the the wheel turned and moved up and down.  The final design met all the clearance criteria and also improved the headlamp coverage of the road.
