Unfasten the front cowling off of the fairing stay.(you have to take the fasteners off of the top of the L/R fairings too. Easiest way I know unless you have girl hands to be able to squeeze under the cowling.

I didn't go throught all that, I just removed the bottom screws on the speedo and turned it up. Then I was able to reach in there and remove the rubber on the upper headlight. Not too hard. Good Luck

Changing bulbs looks as though it will be more challenging than on my previous 01 600 (due to the tight space between forks and instrument/headlight area). It used to be a snap, I'm dreading when my bulb burns out! The price of progress I guess

It's easiest to just remove the plastic fairing underneath the front cowl (the one with all the pushpins). Then you can get to it from underneath there really easily! Also, lift up your speedo to get even more room. If you're just chaning bulbs it shouldn't be too hard. If you're installing HID's like I did, I would suggest removing the entire front cowl and working on it on your carpet in your pad...
