O.K., I wanted to post this some time back, but I have to ask now.

Several months ago, I had to drive my stepson's VN750 several miles
to my garage. The dang headlight was pointing so low, I couldn't believe
he never complained about it. He must have been driving with psychic
sensory. :p Anyhow, I loosened the 2 bolts on each side of the headlight.
They were stubborn, but I loosened them. I moved the bike back 17 feet
from my garage door and aimed the light to a mark 2" below the height of
the headlight on the bike itself. Perfect. Now I try to tighten the bolts.
They won't ?? They get kind of tight, but something inside is turning
along with my tightening.

It looks like I have to get inside the headlight to find out why. I take out
the 2 screws on each lower side of the headlight. The headlight won't
come out? I look for a screw at the top, where I am getting resistance,
but there is only smooth chrome? So I pull harder. Whoh, something is
going to break. I pull down & forward. I push up and pull forward. The
dang headlight ain't coming out! Before I break something, I stop. I inform
my stepson he'll have to adjust it as he drives because I can't tighten the
2 bolts on the side.

Yesterday he stopped by. I looked at the headlight. There is NO bolt in
the right side of the bike now, but the other bolt seams to be holding fine.

My question: How do you remove the ^&*$&*)# headlight ???

Dude !! After you remove the two screws on the chrome retaining ring there
is a little tab at the top of it that must be swung down. What I mean is to take hold of the ring at the bottom and gently pull it forward then the tab should rock free. Those two other chrome bolts on the mounting bracket really shouldn't be removed and they really don't get super tight. They are there just for aiming the head light. Also don't mess with the left - right adjusting screw if you can help it.

Thanks !
