Do I have to remove the entire headlight assembly or is there a way of just changing the bulb? I pulled off the rubber cover on the back of the headlight assembly (the right one/low beam) but cannot figure out how to remove the bulb only.

Thanks.

No need to take the fairing off! Just pull the rubber boot like you did and open the two springs as seen in the video around the 2:30 mark. Bulb is out and in, in seconds.

Thanks. I did see that one. Someone in the comments posted that this was unnecessary, I asked him a question on an easier way to do it.

Gowindward, thank you. I will give it another shot. I just had a really hard time getting in there and trying to open the springs.

I did it successfully, thanks. When I got it out I saw the spring holding the bulb was broken so that was the reason it was more difficult.,

Love this forum. Everyone helps.
