Harley-Davidson headlights are simple to replace.

If the headlight on your Harley-Davidson motorcycle burns out, a new one headlight can be purchased and replaced right in the parking lot. The replacement doesn't require a high degree of do-it-yourself skilll--all it takes are a screwdriver, steady hands and a few items that should be in the Harley's bags.



Things You'll Need

  • Gloves
  • Cloth
  • Needle-nose pliers
  • Small container
    • 1

      Remove the chrome retaining ring from the bad headlight. This should just pop straight off with just a little force.

    • 2

      Remove the two or three retaining screws on the headlight, using the screwdriver. Set them aside for use with the new headlight.

    • 3

      Wriggle the headlight out of its housing. Do this carefully, using a downward motion. Pull until the plug in the back is visible.

    • 4

      Grasp the three-pronged plug with the needle-nose pliers, and carefully unplug it from the headlight.

    • 5

      Remove the new headlight from its packaging with gloved hands. Wipe any dust or package particles with a clean cloth.

    • 6

      Plug the new headlight into the three-pronged plug. Use the needle-nose pliers if necessary. Do not damage the plug.

    • 7

      Slide the new bulb back into the housing once the connection is secure. Put the screws back in place.

    • 8

      Turn on the new headlight and check that it is aligned. Adjust the alignment so the beam shines slightly down.

    • 9

      Replace the chrome retaining ring. Shine the chrome and wipe the new bulb one more time.

Tips & Warnings

  • Do not remove or move the adjusting screws.

  • Do not touch the bulb with your hands. The oil in your skin will damage the new bulb.
