If you want a better pic., get your own manual out.

It's hard to take a picture of an LCD screen, isn't Ourdee?

The trick to taking a picture of a screen is to slow down the shutter of whatever camera you have and hold still.

But don't worry about that. we can read it and it's appreciated.

About the background, like PeeWee Herman said,"I meant to do that".

I ended up going all redneck on it. While cutting to get the connector out I kept going until I could put the boot back on and get the lights in at the same time.

Not pictured was bailing wire to secure the wires behind the windscreen.

Which leaves a remaining question of what light is supposed to go in that hole in the middle? The manual said something about European models only???

That's a parking light.
My 2008 had the connector there but no bulb installed.
I put a cheapy LED bulb there.
It works pretty well and doesn't take much current at all.

I put a SYLVANIA LONGLIFE 194, 4.6 watt bulb in mine. Saved me a ticket one night when I blew the high and low beam bulbs. Looked like I had a very very very dim headlight. And officer friendly looked the other way. It works as a parking light with the key in the position passed lock.

My new Buell "World" headlight assembly came with a bulb in it.

If I remember right all 09 and 10 Ulys have the bulb in the socket. I put one in on my 06, but as I haven't had the headlamp assembly off for my 08 I'm yet to put one in, they are only a couple dollars
