Not if you fit them in the right place ;D


Remove the air filter box to do the OS, and the battery for the NS.

Or pull the headlight.

The rear caps are secured by three torx screws, wjich makes it fiddlier than it needs to be.

As long as you don't move the adjusters, they should be fine ;)

Oh, don't zap yourself on the ballasts.  :D

It's possible to change them without removing anything, but isn't worth the trouble. Or extra time. Or bloodloss

I removed mine to change them and it was quite easy.

Have you bought the bulbs yet?

Preferred choice is Osram D2S from Hids4U rather than Helfrods etc...  ;)

It been about a year since I changed mine... I used GT ULTRA XENON D2S  I got the two on offer from Powerbulbs.  26.78p. For the two, they are still working fine and are very bright👍
