Sorry for a simple one... I'd like to change my headlight bulb. Is it as simple as removing the chrome ring and taking out the lens to get at the bulb?
I have to remove my fairing first also.

Thank you,
John

No, the bulb is removed from the rear of the reflector, not the front.

So what is involved? Remove the entire headlight bucket?
Thanks Roy.

I have replaced my headlight entirely with an LED version, so I can't check.

But the procedure is in the owners manual.

HEADLIGHT BULB
· Place the vehicle on the stand.
· Remove the entire reflector including
the headlight body, unscrewing
the screw (3).

HIGH BEAM/LOW BEAM LIGHT BULB
· Grasp the bulb's electric connector
(4), pull it out and disconnect
it from the bulb.
· Using the hands, move the casing
(5) aside.
· Unhook the two ends of the retaining
spring (6), located in the
bulb holder.
· Remove the bulb (1) from its
housing.
NOTE
INSERT THE BULB INTO THE BULB
HOLDER, MAKING THE POSITIONING
SEATS COINCIDE.

· Correctly install a bulb of the
same type.

POSITION LIGHT BULB
· Grasp the position light holder
(7), pull and remove it from its
housing.
· Slide out the bulb (2) and replace
it with one of the same
type.
· Check that the bulb was correctly
inserted in the bulb holder

Was reading your replies, DAVE, on my phone yesterday and got my Kiwi’s confused.
Many thanks for your replies.
