Question about 2002 Aprilia SL Mille Falco R

1 Answer

Changing dash bulbs.

I need to change a bulb on my dash and just to be sure I will change them all to avoid taking of the front fairing another 10 times.... I am thinking of using 3w bulbs (as used in the warning lights) for the rev counter and the left and right display in stead of the stock 2w bulbs. Does anybody know if chaging these lights from 2w to 3w will cause any problems?

How do i replace the headlight bulbs in my 86 CBX750F2

Hi While it is possible, with skinny super flex hands to change them in situ, For most of us you need to take the front fairing off, unbolt the 3 holding bolts for the head light and reamove the rubber caps.
and plugs, remove the spring retainers and replace bulbs.This is a long winded process but saves a lot of skin.

I have a 2011 Kawasaki concourse 14. What size bulbs are these and how do I gain access to change them out.

If you are referring to the two lower lights, you will need to remove the whole front cowel that covers all 4 lights! I am not sure, but the screws are behind the cowel and fairly difficult to reach. The light assemblies have the bulbs twist inserted from the back. Good Luck!

Change headligth bulb

Do you have the fairing on your bike? if so you have to remove the harness clips from behind the forks then pop off the rubber gasket around the bulb, then release the metal clips then pull the backing of the bulbs out, dont handle the new bulbs by the glass or they will blow from the un even heating of the natural oils in your fingers. If you have the front light pod with no fairing then remove the pod from the bracket and the bulb should remove from the back! hope this helsp!

How to change a headlight bulb, do i have to take off the front fairing?

hi, it is not normaly nessasary to remove the fairing on this model for bulb replacment, the bulb holder is in the middle of the headlight behind a rubber cover, pull off the 3 way plug from the bulb, remove the cover, unclip the wire clip from the bulb and remove the H4 type bulb, some later fuel injection models are more difficult, hope this helps. paul

How do you take off the front fairing?

take off the front headlamp, unplug head lamp, remove windshield, remove screws along outer edges of inner fairing, there are 2 screws at the bottom inside the triple tree. This should remove it for you, i have done it several times adding speakers, garage opener, replacing bulbs, etc.

How do you remove the headlight bulb

1. Remove headlight unit
2. Disconnect headlight leads
3. Remove bulb cover
4. Remove headlight bulb holder
5. Remove headlight bulb
6. Install new headlight bulb - DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS PART OF THE BULB!
7. Install headlight bulb holder
8. Install bulb cover
9. Connect headlight leads
10. Install headlight unit

I'm not aware of any shortcuts, nor do I believe that any steps could be changed or eliminated without re-engineering the headlight unit.

Do I need to remove my fairing to replace the headling bulbs?

Hi there,

well you can please follow the below steps -

Remove the Fairing - 1. Unscrew all seven outer fairing fasteners using a Torx driver. These screws are located on the inner fairing near the windshield, the speakers, and the handlebar clamps.
2. Stand in front of the motorcycle. Tilt the outer fairing toward you and hold it firmly. Reach in and disconnect the wire connectors for the headlight assembly by hand.
3. Move the fairing to a work bench to continue the procedure.

Change the Headlights - 1. Remove the wire harness connectors from the back of each headlight that need replacement. Turn the plastic retainer counterclockwise by hand to remove each bulb from its housing.
2. Install the new headlight bulb or bulbs, with each bulb's wider ears on the bulb back plates oriented toward the top. Screw in the plastic retainer rings by hand.
3. Connect the headlight wire harness connectors to the back of each headlight.
4. Move the fairing back to the motorcycle. Reinstall the fairing, battery and seat in reverse order.
Please post comments if you need more help or information.........

Good Luck!!

Actually u can reach in and just pull the 3 prong connector right off of the bulb.Then pull off the rubber cover with the tab that is at the top of the circular rubber cover. The bulb is held in by a small wire that hooks on both sides. Replace the bulb and reverse the steps.There is no need to remove any fairings to replace the bulb.

Changing my bulb

Your going to have to completely remove the mirrors arms (slid back the black plastic, undo the two bolts holding it onto the nose fairing) and gently pull the nose fairing forward until you can reach the back of the lights, I now this sounds a stupid way of doing it, but its the only way..
