I dont have the directions;


pull the mirrors off, take the bolts out of the side/under and front fairing.

remove front fairing then the headlights.



May be easier to spray some cleaner in there through the bulb socket then blow out w compressed air on a long extension.

If you separate the lense from the housing, its really difficult to reseal and takes alot of slow work to get the lense cut off the glue.

if you put a sturdy slightly damp papertowel on a coat hanger, you can get in there and clean the inside lense.

you will need to dry it w a clean towel then blow out the small pieces of the towel.

LET IT DRY COMPLETELY BEFORE TURNING ON THE HEADLIGHTS. The heat will bake the water stains into the plastic and will take an act of to clean it up
