LEFT HIGH BEAM HEAD LIGHT---REVISIT!

Board, Replacing the left hi-light is not so difficult. First remove seat,top shelter,
instrument cover, round al. brace. unclip large wire bundle, remove two
screws that hold wire connectors (3), intake duct and then place two bungies to pull wire bundles aft. Install German Hella bulb then replace
parts back to the instrument cover. Connect battery and test. NO LIGHT!!!
Repeat process to remove Hella bulb and drive to town. Buy two SilverStars from O'Rilley Auto Store-- one year warrenty-- return to hanger
install left bulb and test. Remove right Hella and replace right bulb. Test.
Reverse process. Not so hard. galewing

OR go to an '07 and the left high beam is easy to change from the looks of it with the pocket removed.

I did my own low beams but my hands were simply too large to get to the Highs. I had the shop do it.
