    Parking light bulb (501)

    Hi people!

    I want to replace the parking light bulb… does the beak have to come off or can you get the bulb holder out without removing it?
    Thanks 😃

    On Mk1 bikes, you can totally get the bulb out to replace it without having to dismantle the front end.
    Still it IS a bit fiddly ;-)

    It was years ago for me, but I remember having good luck with a pair of thin pliers.

    Remove the black surround of the headlight, 4 bolts, the bulb holder then just pulls out for easy replacement.
