Ray, to get at the headlight assembly, you have to remove the front of the fairing (sorry). It's fiddly and time consuming but it's not rocket science. For the high beam, you can get away with just the fairing pocket, but the low beam is farther inside the body work. I can get you a pdf for the removal if you don't have a service manual. Headlight is in section 20-8 and fairing is section 2-10 send me a PM if you need the info

Thanks for the clarification Joe, and hope I didn't scare Ray, just went by the info in the service manual. I never had to change any bulbs on my 1500 so I just took the written word. Experience is the greatest teacher.

Find the member " Rapier " here. He told me he bought the F. Harmon videos. It's time he put his money into practice.

Thanks for the replies. I have changed the low beam before and yes I can reach it but I can not see or reach the high beam. I did remove the right lockable pocket but there are other plastic pieces in the way, vent etc. If you could send me the PDF I would greatly appreciate as I don't have a manual. I think I am going to invest in one soon though.
