How to access headlight globe.

Postby ebags » Sun Feb 02, 2014 6:22 am

Okay this may seem silly but compared to my last and only other naked bike I've had the 1290 is post worthy. I was cheering for who ever engineered the controversial looking headlight assembly.

Step 1.

Remove 1 screw either side of the assembly, (total 2 screws) pictured here:

Step 2.

Swing the headlamp assembly downward from the top for an all access pass. :mrgreen:

Globe is H4.

So easy! Thanks! You put a sweet color bulb in it instead of the original?

Yes I fitted a Phillips Crystal Vision. Much brighter and it matches the LED's very nicely. :wink:

Is it a specific bulb number or anything?
