Ah yes, I remember now. One of mine went out and there was no warning light. A week or two after that, the other one failed. The warning appeared only after the second bulb failed. I am not surprised that KGK1200GT's bulbs failed at nearly the same time - that's what happened to mine, too.
I also remember how difficult it was to fit my hands in there to get the bayonet mount turned. The right side was especially challenging.
Removal Hint: Feel the wires to guide your hand to where you unscrew the bayonet mount. It is deeper than you imagine. You will be asking yourself, "How the heck am I supposed to cram my hand in _there_?" If you have very large hands, you might ask a mechanically minded friend with smaller hands to help.
Replacement Hint: It helps to have a friend stand in front of the bike to talk you through aiming the bulb and mount to get it back into the hole. With your hand blocking your view, you can't easily see where you are aiming, but your friend can see it from the front through the hole.
