The Xmax is a fantastic machine indeed but the full beam headlight is awful, so much so that my dealer upon seeing it has agreed to fit auxiliary lights free of charge. There have been numerous conversations with Yamaha UK and although they are aware of a "possible" issue with them they have not come right out and said it. Although I expect the next batch of bikes will have been fixed....

Mmm wounder what they will do if in another 2 years or so they fail mot's en mass,Greyerbeard wrote: ↑Sat Feb 16, 2019 2:20 amIt's an odd one, isn't it - effectively a vehicle without a main headlight beam - wonder how they'll get on at MoT time?
I'm lucky enough never to need to ride in the dark these days; but I couldn't tolerate it if I did, despite the rest of the bike being excellent...
the service manager when mine went in for service said he had marked the paperwork
customer not happy with lights or words to that effect, doubt he actually put down my exact words,
having said that I can ride down our unlit lanes at 60 without problems they are very strange.
