I'll be damned if i can figure out how to do it. If anyone can point me in the right direction, that would be good.

I figured the rears easy enough.
Thanks
Dan.

Look under the big chrome pieces that the lights attach to. You'll see a phillips bolt head on each side. The bolt screws into the base of the indicator, so once you remove the bolt the light just pulls out.

You'll need to remove the headlight to unplug the lights.

That's what I thought but I have tried to undo them and DAMN they are in tight. I'm 6'6 and 120kg so no problem in the strength department but I'm bordering on rounding the inside of those if I try to hard.

What else can I do??

Sometimes they fall out on their own, you got lucky and got the tight ones. :D

Mine came out with average force but some have had to use an impact hammer to remove them. Be careful with them as they are fairly soft.

Since they are large, you might try using a flat screwdriver in the slots and putting a small crescent wrench on the screwdriver for some leverage.

Yeah I'm gonna have to get an impact driver and see how that goes. Failing that, I'll drill the bastards out :)

A drill bit and an "easy-Out" will go a long way here.

Get a little torch lighter and put some heat on them.

Cheers for the feed back guys. Glad to see I wasn't the only one having dramas with those bloody screws. Anyway, I bought myself an impact driver/screwdriver and hammered the **** out of it and I managed to get them out. Now I just have to install my rear LED and put in the new relay and hopefully they work first time round. Would be kind of embarrassing if I connected up the wires the wrong way.

Just make a note guys and save yourselves alot of headaches. Anything that has loctite on it needs to be heated up. Try to take off your helmet lock that uses a security bit, youll never get it off without heating it up. Go out and buy yourself a micro torch light. Even a good heater soldering iron can get the job done.

Removed my helmet lock without even needing the bit. Took the one non-security bolt off from the front, bent the bracket, and spun it from the rear. :)
