It's in the FAQ's thread, but here's a link: http://www.m109riders.com/forums/sho...red+tail+light.

If you use a dremel, with a cut off wheel, and CAREFULLY cut the red one off, It will take about an hour, as it won't be necessary to move the whole light over. Just switch the lenses.:bigthumbsup:

Remove rear fender, unplug red one, remove 4 screws off red one, remove rubber grommets. Place rubber grommets on LE light, replace 4 screws, plug light in, replace the fender. Job over. :bigthumbsup:

Yes it is. Iv done it about 5 times, Take off seat cowl, then you will see 4 more screws . take them out and make sure you snap apart the side covers that attach to the rear fender. One on each side of the seat, Then there are 4 screws holding taillight in, Not make sure you dont lose the black rubber o-rings around screws on taillight. and thats it.

You don't have to remove the side covers completely, but you have to disengage the rear portion where they taper into the fender. They cover a bolt on each side that has to be removed to get the fender off. You can pop them loose and pull them out far enough to remove the bolt without removing them completely.

You don't have to use them, they just blink faster if you don't. Some like it that way.
