I caught a rock in the headlight the other day and was wondering what all is involved to replace it.

Any thoughts would be apppreciated.

Beemer Boneyard is all sold out.

 

I highly recommend a Cee Baileys head light guard to fit over the headlight glass.

I had a rock bust the guard on my '02 RT but not a scratch on the headlight.

I have a headlight unit and was wondering how much plastic to remove to replace the unit. As soon as it happen I got on eBay and found one.

Sorry you had to learn the hard way.

 

To get to the light, you have to remove the side panels, then the nose. There are 4 Phillips screws that hold the nose on the frame. It's pretty straightforward.

 

Cheers,

Maybe consider a HID kit while you're in there? Assuming you don't already have one, that is.

 

I'll second the lamp guard. I don't have one on the current bike, but have been glad I had them on previous vehicles.

Be careful buying a used headlight.

Some have broken off tabs from accidents that you won't find out about until you get it
