Quick Question Tokico Illumina's

Got the Tokico's installed, My question is why is their a small black box that looks like its meant to hold the Red tip with the numbers on it? I put the Tips on and they fit pretty loosely and probably would fall off, are they supposed to stay on the rod Tightly?


And also, Why does the adjuster screw just keep turning and never stop? How do i know if im actually on 5 or not?

thx....

it's pretty fragile and it sounds like you broke it.

no they are pretty loose, and how do you know they are on 5? with the red tips on there

you shouldn't have turned it not knowing what settings they were originally at

I can tell you how you know when ur on 5. There's a flat spot on the top threaded piece that the selector sits on. When you are lined up on that flat spot you are on 5. It only lines up perfect one way. This is assuming your install was on point. Just to let you know, you are only supposed to turn clock wise. You should never turn counter clock wise that is the way they're designed.

Push down on the fender with some force.... you'll kmow right away if your on 1 or 5. Then just set them according to your personal preference.
