depending on which side it is either the battery box asembly or the air cleaner assembly has to be removed to get to the wire keeper that holds the headlight bulb assembly in the rear of the headlight housing. then release the wire keeper and the bulb assembly comes out of the rear of the headlight housing and you can change the bulb. do not touch the glass part of the new bulb assembly, only handle the metal part of the new bulb assembly.
