My headlight shakes like crazy when going over any sort of bump in the road. With the upgraded 80/100 bulb I am worried that I am inadvertently blinding people as I am riding. Has anyone else had this issue? It seems that the entire chrome cover for the lower triple clamp is moving. My assumption is that this is intentional so the filament doesn't break from too much vibration, but I would rather replace the bulb more often than blind oncoming drivers.

So, I decided to pop the headlight off and see how it was mounted. It was indeed mounted on rubber grommets. I decided to remove the metal spacer inserts and trim them down about 1/8th of an inch so I could tighten it up a bit more. I put everything back together and gave it a shake with my hand and it seems pretty stable now. I won't know for sure until I take it for a ride tomorrow, but I am guessing I have probably mostly fixed the issue.
