    Remove headlight assembly

    How do you get to the screws that attach headlight assembly to the triple clamp. It’s too tight for a regular socket to get into. I tried using l shaped torx keys but it takes forever to get them loose. I was wondering if anyone has had better luck with some other tools. Thanks!

    You have stumbled into the most painful aspect of S1000R ownership…

    There are quite a few posts with guidelines on the subject- keep looking and you’ll find them. Even with the best instructions it’s still a serious pain.

    By far the easiest way is to remove the whole front! the involves removing the screen, side panels, the nose fairing and then the front bracket with everything still attached. once off the screws are easily accessible. Yes, it's a pain!!!
