Headlight problem w/08 R1

Hey guys,
I just bought an 08 R1 and i'm having alot of problems seeing around corners at night. The headlights cut off about 1/2 the corner. Is anyone else experiencing this problem? I had an '02 previous to the new one and I never had this problem. I haven't tried adjusting any heights yet, but I wanted to see if anyone else out there has the same issue.

You probably mean your low beams, which are projector beams. They have a very defined edge, so they will not eluminate very far past the edges. I have the same complaint, the only work around is to use your high beams around corners when there is no approching traffic.
As far as I know, the only way to adjust your headlights are to adjust your suspension. There are no headlight trim screws.
