Why they didn't put screws in the lens & a trap door for the license or a lighted license is beyond me.

Tail/Brake is #7443 also ATM 7443

License is #161 or 194 L.E.D.

Thanks,I'll try the car jack if I can't get my hands in there.

It's a heavy bike.

It's REALLY REALLY easy to remove the rear fender.

Super Duper easy.

It gets a little more involved if you have the factory saddlebag supports but if you dont its only:
the 2 bots that hold on the chrome to the fender. (each side)
2 bolt under the chrome that holds the fender to the support. (each side)
You have to remove the latch that holds the passenger seat down.
2 bolts under the riders seat.
Under the drivers seat there is a plug that unhooks all the fender wiring and off she comes.

I take mine off to do rear tire changes. It just opens it up and makes it easier to work on.

True so true. I am just stuck in the frame of mind with daylight this time of year. I have a building to store the bike in but it is not big enough to work on it inside so I have to do everything outside.. I got a windshield and crash bar the other day and installed it. I started at 5 ish and by the time I was done with the windshield it was too dark to see and I had to pull out the halogen work lights to get the crash bar. I hate this time of year. Just not enough daylight. One more small step is an annoyance for me right now.

Tailight replacement

Piece of cake to do unless you have really big hands. But you'll need a metric Allen wrench set and a 10mm socket. On the inside of the rear fender, remove the cover with the three Allen bolts then remove the three bolts with the 10 mm socket. Unplug the white electrical plug then remove the whole taillight assembly from the outside. It might be a bit sticky so work it a bit but it'll come off. The you can access the bulbs. I put in a Kisan Taiblazer that flashes drivers behind you.
