How the heck do I change the headlight?

I looked. I scratched my head. I looked some more. I scratched my head some more. Then I found the exploded diagrams in the spare parts catalog - I'm still scratching my head.

Any pointers are greatly appreciated!

From the back side. Easy to do. Simply pull the front housing off.

Thanks, I'm sure I'll need help. Plenty in fact.
Status on the parts: en-route from Italy delivery unknown
sweet!

After I get this basic maintenance squared away I'll be moving on to tackle the nasty no-feel grabby clutch of doom and considering options for smoother throttle response. And with the recent rash of cagers trying to merge into the lane I'm occupying I'm thinking about going loud. So a slip on with removable baffles.

I rode my fiance's V-star 650 to work last week and the obnoxious Vance & Hines exhaust on it really kept the cagers at a nice comfortable distance. Nobody rode my ass or drive next to me where I can get into their blind spot. It was liberating.
So call me what you want, being heard works on these roads.

also, call me a pussy but I finally did the Ton going into work today. I think my adjustment to the hyper is complete. I still have days where she feels totally alien. But more than not I feel the alien in me riding her. We're finally clicking.
And we totally destroy route 476 daily

My parts finally shipped from Omaha! I had to have them change to 10W40 from 10W15 though because they claimed the flooding in Texas prevented them from obtaining it.

10w50?

The 10w40 should be just fine, that's what I've been running in mine. Blackstone labs says my oil specs are in check after 3000k miles.

The US has conveniently placed major refineries right on a flood plain. 2 have been incapacitated. They're there for easy exporting - which when you think of how much of our military lives and resources are involved in protecting foreign oil supplies, is pretty strange.
