its not its a pain in the ass!!! however if you search for hid extenders then that is the best way, you mount the ballast on the left side fairing and extend the power wire to the hid bulb easier than doing all of this. In my opinion

great write up!
i'm not changing the headlight, but this was definitely helpful in just taking off the fairing. Prying off the front from the headlight was scary.

thanks

Ok, to do this the right way you must remove the upper side fairings, mirrors, front faring, and also the headlight.

pic 1
Begin by removing the first pushpins on the inside of each side inside the wheel well. Note there are two on each side. The first one holds the front of the side fairing on. The rear applied to the parts that can stay for this job.
pic2
Remove all of the upper fairing screws. You will notice each one of these has a plastic washer. I suggest not to loose these. They protect the fairing from premature damage from movement during hard riding and constant removal of fairings. If you place each screw, threads facing up/head down on the table, it will be easier to keep track of them.
pic3
Remove the screws on the bottom half of fairing. The you can begin to pry the fairing outward beginning at the bottom shown here. Continue prying and pulling fairing towards the front of the bike
pic 4
Notice fairing has clips here. When the fairing is pulled out, then pulled towards the front of the bike they should slide right out.
pic5
Remove srews here on both sides
thanks

I'd argue that LED's are probably the better way to go now. Installed a set for my 2016 Ford F150 and they're awesome. Fire up instantly, less draw, smaller wiring and kit (easier) to fit and hide etc etc.

Not saying HID's aren't great, installed a set in my Benz, but the LED kits are starting to easily surpass the HID kits out there in my opinion in cars AND bikes...
