94 R100 GS Headlight

Ok. So I broke off the little clip that holds the headlight bulb in. I'm trying to get the headlight out, but it seems like I have to disassemble the entire front end just to do this. My Clymer manual is useless as far as help. Am I missing something? Any advice would be helpful.

Yeah, you have to disassemble most everything to get the headlamp out, especially to fix it [JB Weld works BTW].

You can pull just one side off,
I remove the blinker and the screw for the faring side panel and then I have access to the headlight.
But if you turn the bars to the side, do you have enough clearance to get the bulb out?

If you have to replace the thing, and you are taking it all apart.

I would recommend doing a dash board bulb replacement and connection inspection and clean.

It could save you some time and headaches down the road.

Thanks. I'll be relaxing the dash bulbs as advised- since the whole thing is opened up. I'm going to try and repair the bulb holder thing off the back of the headlight, and I'm pretty sure JB Weld will come into play.

If that ends up not working and you need to source a used headlight, it might interest you to know that the same assembly was used in K75S and the early carb'd F650 bikes (Funduro and ST). That extra model coverage expands your used possibilities
