Parkinglight. Bulb change (European models only)

This is the infamous European parkinglight:

It`s in a rather "difficult" spot!

To remove it, first, do this;

Image

Just kidding! :lol

BUT; this is a rather tidious operation.. No "biggie" but you need to remove the front cowling assembly (NOT the cowling stay) on the bike to get to it, and that takes a while...
On the bright side, you get a chance to familiar yourself with all the bolts and screws, and it`s a great opportunity to clean the bike thoroughly! :ok

1. In short:
Remove the front cowling assembly on the bike. You need to remove the mirrors, the windscreen, the instrument panel cower, the air intake duct cover, the upper cover, and you also need to separate the surge tanks, from the part that "disappears into the frame" in order to get the front of. Watch out for the speedo cable attached on the inside next to the wheel....
This might help:

2. Now you see where the bulb is mounted! :<

3. Unscrew the headlight, remove it from the cowling (5screws), and tip it over.

4. Now you can finally remove the bulb (note the subtle "pointing"):
It fits in a slot, so you need to look carefully and turn the plug into the correct position in order to get it out. It was really STUCK in there!

Image

5. Rather large "plug" for a small bulb.

That`s basicly it... :/

Oh; the bulb is 12V 4w.
