    Headlight replacement; GT

    Need to replace low beam headlight on '07 GT. Read the RepRom procedure; remove right & left panels, windscreen, WS motor, Instrument panel, etc. etc. They did allow one to leave the rear trunk in place.
    Can I get to it, evenly blindly by leaving most of the plastic in place?. Previous bike was a Concours. Could change headlight bulbs without removing plastic. Hands would get beat up a bit. Always easier the 2nd time around.
    TIA -- Dennis

    I thought I watched a friend do one in the hotel parking lot as "easily" as the RT's. Maybe not?

    Luis has posted a DIY that may shed some light...pun intended!

    Are you replacing the head light assembly or the bulb

    If you are removing the headlight assembly that is significant work

    If you replacing the bulb - go to the back of the panel and you will see an access door






    shown is the Xenon Bulb

    A couple more shots to provide perspective


    A little further out


    You can get to it - it is tight though, this is of course assuming you want to change your bulb and not the unit
