81 goldwing with radio and fairing.
There is a "headlight adjuster thingthat you grab ahold of to lower or higher the headlight .
I backed that off till the bolt fell inside the headlight.
I'm starting ti think thats shiny chrome thing that surrounds the light needs to come off too.
what a pain in the butt just to change a light bulb
any help would be super appreciated

There is a screw that holds the knob on, remove the screw then pull the knob off them remove the nut behind the knob and the whole assembly comes out.

Something way wrong..that bolt is attached to the frame that holds the headlight not to the bulb itself. With the knob off you shoudl see a nut and washer on the inside of the fairing it needs to be loosened and taken off the bolt then the hold thing slides out the front..bulb, frame etc.

Do you have a Hondaline fairing or is it a Vetter? I don't think you can screw it all the way out on a Honda fairing. On a vetter there is a tab on the bottom of the chrome ring, push it up and rotate the ring counter clockwise.
