Okay call me a dumbass but I'm ill now lol. I bought a hid projector with the angel eye from Sportbike lites and I have to remove the headlight assy to take it apart and install the projector. My problem is I can't get the damned headlight assembly out of the fucking bike.:cursing:banghead I have almost taken apart the whole front clip but it's still holding on to something. Is there an easy way I just don't know or am I just doing it wrong? Please help. Thank you and Merry Christmas lol

Once you do it once or twice, you can pull the 2 bolts holding the front clip, pop the 2 plugs, pretty quickly. Then go get comfy somewhere to work on it.

once you've done it a few times its easy. take the cluster surround plastic off ,then remove the guage cluster . then you have access to the fairing stay/mirror mnt. take the upper fairing bolts/push rivets out then remove the fairing stay bolts. then everythings free so you can unplug connections and remove the entire front clip. thats the easiest way to do it. the other way you're gonna have a pile o parts on the garage floor not a complete clip.
have fun.

On the K7 you can just reach in & remove the 2 bolts. There's not a lot of room but you can do it, even with my XXL mitts.

didnt know that friend i'm always on a customers bikes not mine so i'm super careful not to scratch em. the new ones,09-10 are even more complex. but still better than 08+ busa's. those fairings/upper are a real bitch.
hope this helped ya
