Question Headlight on CBF600N '04. When I dip, you dip, we dip.

Hi all, I've joined this forum as I have a technical question and would benefit from your wealth of expertise.

I currently own a CBF600N 2004 which I bought in Spain.
I am now going back to live in the UK.
To register the bike in England, it needs to have a headlight that 'dips' to the right instead of the left (this is where this post's witty title was inspired, thanks I'm here all week ).
In addition, the rules state that I can't simply use a sticker or similar to change the direction.

Has anyone else had to change the dip direction of their headlight?
Having read the parts lists for both UK and Euro versions of the bike, I see they use a different headlight lense. The part number is 33120-MAK-600 (UK) and 33120-MAK-000 (Euro).
This makes me think that the dip won't be changeable simply by turning a screw, and changing the headlight lense would instead do the trick.

Any advice, suggestions, ideas about headlights and dip? Am I correct that buying the UK spec lense will be enough?
