Angel eyes headlights problem

Hey guys
I've a CBR 500R and one of my headlights stopped working..
I don't really know whats the brand or what exactly type of mod is that, i bought it like this.
before I'm going to a shop i wanted to ask if there is something I can do myself?
and in case its just the bulb how hard is to replace it?

It looks like your high beam is switched to off, on the left set of controls on your bars is a switch that you flip up and down, it's your high beam and lo beam switch , just like a car . Try flipping it in the opposite position that it's in now and see if that fixes your problem

On bikes one light is your low and the other one only comes on when you turn your high beams on. Usually.

Maybe a loose connection, check all the wiring that leads to the bulb and also the extra wires from the fancy led's and angel eye

The bulbs probably out then. Remove it and go to the auto parts store or cycle gear.
