Good job will remember that for next time.I struggled the last time for hours trying to snap that dam clip,ended up making a tool from a piece of 1/8 rod bent just right to snap the clip from on top through the right side of the handle bar with the aid of a camera dennis

Thanks for the video but the k1600 has a different clip than that on the low beam. Still need guidance on how the clip works. I still can’t unhook the bottom of the clip

My low beam burned out at 83,000 miles. I provided the bulb and the dealership perform the maintenance. Dealer charged me for an hour and a half of labor - $207.

Be careful what you ask for, I wouldn’t mind a ride to Virginia. I’ll bring the cigars and scotch.
