Headlight change

Has anyone taken the headlight wiring apart? Trying not to break the large white connectors but they are stubborn! Any suggestions would be great.

There must be a latch hidden somewhere on the connector. Take your time (and maybe your glasses) to find it as it won't come apart without freeing the latch. Sorry, got no detailed pic of it.

Blue 2010. #1 Euro Re-flashed ECU. Oil temp & pressure gauges. J & H on stock muffler. 240 Metz on 7.75" rim. Own aircleaner. Integrated tail/brake/indicator light. No pair valve. Sort of T-mod. Restyled seat. Rad rad cover. To be continued . . . .

Think I saw a latch in there. Such a small area it's hard to get both hands in there. I'll keep at it. Thanks AV.

there is a tab in the center on one side that allows them to pull apart.. I fought like crazy myself because they look wierd but a buddy came over and just pushed the little tab and boom they came apart easy.. I will see if I can get a pic if you haven't got it yet.

Still working at it. Saw the tab at the bottom and tried pushing that in to pull it apart, but no luck. I'm probably doing it wrong. It's killin me because the weather is so nice right now! Appreciate the help Phantom.

I fought the one on the brake light when I changed to LED. Cant remember how exactly but it definitely comes apart. I'll look at mine when I get home.

That's it. There's some weird logic behind those latches but in the end it will come out. I had the same problem on the brake/taillight like Bigduke had.

I ended up cutting the break lights and using the wire connects when I changed to led. At least this stuff is well made.

All of those connectors should have a keeper of one sort or another. I haven't been in the headlight bucket yet, so I haven't seen them. Below is the connector for the rear brake light.


You can see the latch on it. When I removed my taillight assembly I purchased new connectors and used them when I wired in my lighted pegs. So it's plug and play, even if I want to go back.

The tail light seemed much simpler than the headlight. There are a couple of these big ones. I think that tab at the bottom is supposed to release it but it just doesn't want to let go. If I ever get it loose I'll post pics.
