Side Light Replacement

Both side lights on my 2007 K1200GT went out at the same time when I got stuck in a hail storm. Seems unusual but I purchased new bulbs and I would like pointers on replacing them.

See this thread, which has a lot of detail that may help:

P.S. For whatever it is worth, both of my lights burned out at roughly the same time. They started out new at the same time - when the bike was assembled.

wow, the other post makes it seem difficult

put the bike on the centre stand, walk to the right side of the bike and face forward
starting with the left bulb, reach in with your left hand and twist bulb holder 90 degrees anti-clockwise and take it out, swap bulb put it back (2 mins)
walk to the left side of the bike, noting on the right side the screen motor makes it "awkward". But for many your right hand will have better dexterity, even so give yourself 3 minutes

if you have a friend with small hands ask them to do it... should take 1 minute a side

Yeah, it is easy if your hands are small and you have good dexterity. For those of us with puffy hands and less dexterity, it is not easy.
