Found this on VOSA web site after a heads up about new MOT regs due in for Jan 2012. They affect HID and LED headlights and may well apply to bike also.



Also new regs on Tow bars and wiring that will no dought affect the trailer draggers among us.



Vehicles equipped with High Intensity Discharge (HID) or LED dipped beam headlamps may be fitted with headlamp washers and a suspension or headlamp self levelling system.
Where such systems are fitted, they must work; however, it is accepted that it may not be possible to readily determine the functioning of self levelling systems. In such cases, the benefit of the doubt must be given.
Headlamp washers may work in conjunction with the windscreen washers (when the dipped beam headlamps are switched on) or by a separate switch.
HID lamps may be identified by:

taking a few seconds to reach full intensity

having a bluish tinge to the light

having an igniter module/inverter behind the headlamp

having ‘DCR’ marked on the headlamp lens.
HID headlamps use high voltage and extra care should be taken when inspecting these items.



Does not cut and paste too well but the VOsa web site is accessable to all.

First MOT with the new regs and my 18 year old baby passed with no remarks or obsevations. not bad for a bike that goes out in any sort of weather

all though i did spend most of the day yesterday in the garrage gong through the check as above. i had to strip the front right caliper again due to a lazy caliper it was not retracting causing a clatter when the wheel turned. i found a badly seated top seal.

thats me for another year

:thumbsup::thumbsup:
