The large nut that holds the headlight to the Bar needs to be loose enough to move the whole light assy,

Buy an owners manual reprint or an original; the set up is illustrated therein along with a lot of other useful information.

For best results use new old stock lamps as the repro ones do not have the correct filament alignment to focus the beam.
