LOL! how do you get the headlight off!

My 950 Adventure is needing a new headlight bulb, do I have to strip the entire bike to get it out? I have looked it over pretty good and it looks like I have a lot of stuff to remove to get to the back of the light.
Am I missing a simple solution?
Thanks

I suppose the easiest would be to remove the two top tank panels (5 screws per side), then remove the wind screen (6 screws). You can then pop the headlight assembly off the frame. Nothing is easy on a 950.

That's enough, no need to remove the windscreen to change the bulbs.
One beer job if you are a fast drinker.

I got it, just removed a few screws in the front top fairing and I saw the two ears of the headlight shroud, popped them loose and pulled the light forward! Had to spread the fairing a little but back together and we have light!
thanks
