Headlight assembly has to come OUT of the Fairing/bucket. Yer not gonna get it out with it still mounted in the fairing.

Easiest way (at least in the couple of times I've had mine out), is to remove the left side cover, disconnect the wire to the headlight. REMOVE the fairing completely. 4 bolts remove the plastic cover (which is much easier to put back on with the fairing OFF). At that point the headlight assembly (which is really just a standard sportster headlight bucket/assembly mounted inside the fairing), is free to disassemble - including the little screw/nut on the trim ring (standard small phillips, the nut "locks" in the depression in the trim ring)...

Best purchase after bike - SERVICE MANUAL. :D
Make that FIRST PURCHASE AFTER BIKE.

Ordered all the books (service, electrical diagnostic & parts) when I went down to pick the bike up.

My INTENTION at the time was not to mod at all.

Like so many others, that was until I found THIS PLACE.
