You mean the whole headlight or just one of the bulbs?

If its the whole headlight, it is in 2 parts and is attached to the lower side panels/cowls. The panels have to be removed to unscrew the headlights.

The headlight left and right units come off with the front fairing panels. You won't need to remove the shelter, which is a nice surprise.

Pull off the faining mouldings, the long ones that run down along side the fairing packets and controls, then remove the Allen head bolts under the trim. Then the windshield garnish and the windshield.
the flange bolts along the top of the fairings/headlight assembly are next and while you pull the whole lot forward, disconect the 6 headlight connector plugs and the bank angle sensor.

Don't forget to connect the bank angle sensor back in later or the bike won't start.....
