There are some of us who would rather remove the top shelter than struggle to try and replace hi beam thru' the pockets.

Sounds daunting, but it actually doesn't take so long after the first time.

The manual is full of it. :) For the low beams you can access them much better simply be reaching down the fork tunnels. Just turn the handlebars away from you on the side you are working on, sit a light on the floor under you so you can see and access the rubber covers and bulbs in that manner. Low beams are quite simple that way.


High beams. .............................take the shelter off. You may possibly get the right one done, with a little skin off the back of your hands, come the left one, .........take the shelter off.

Good rule of thumb is replace the high beam bulbs when you replace the air filter. That way it would be rare for a bulb to burn out between service intervals. Unless you use the very bright bulbs, they do put out more light, but also they burn out quickly too.
