So I tried to pull the headligh bulb like others have said by pulling air filter and raising housing all the way up.

BS it does not work.

You have to desamble the side pannels and turn signals housing. There is no way around it. The part that holds you

back is the spring that holds the bulb in place. I was going to do LED's but didn't know for sure witch ones.

So I went to auto store ask for long life bulbs. So they say 1100 hundred hours. So if I only ride 8 hours at a time

I can get 137 days befor I have to do it again. So with only 5 to 6 months of riding I'll be fine.

Man am I glad that I managed to replace mine without doing any disassembly. Not fun, but thankfully my hands were slim enough to get in there without loosing too much skin.

maybe I have small hands (ring size is a 9-9.5). But I literally just Tuesday night did my headlight bulbs in 30 minutes - shoot - I didn't even adjust the headlights up - just removed the filter - and reached up.

It unhooks from one end and pivots against the screw. Don't loosen or remove the screw. https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&ca...

Yep. Easy peasy. This style clip has been in common use in the automotive world since the mid-80s, not sure why it still baffles so many. I guess I may take for granted the fact that I worked at a parts store while in college and had to change a whoooooole lot of headlight bulbs (and batteries) in horribly awkward and hard to reach situations. The Vision bulbs are an easy job. Some of the cars I had to do it on - almost always in the dark and/or rain - made me wish I had three elbows in one arm and a tiny baby hand on the other.
