Headlamp Gremlin

I have what seems to be a common problem on my 04 K1200RS that being a bad ground causing no headlamps with an illuminated high beam indication on the dash. My question is does the headlamp assembly need to be removed, and is there a common location where the ground wire breaks.
Thanks.

You are 100% correct on your diagnoses. The grounds are fastened together inside the headlight shell. This is the failure point and yes the headlight has to come out.
Here are a couple of pdf's on how to remove the headlight.
