If you're just changing the globe it is pretty straight forward and I think it's covered in the HID upgrade thread but basically:
  1. undo 2 dome nuts under headlight
  2. lift headlight unit until it comes off the 2 pins/posts (watch the top/points in relation to the bar clamps
  3. on the back of the headlight unit there are 7 screws, then remove the panel
  4. the top globe is the low beam, remove the connector, then unclip and remove the globe
  5. to refit, do the reverse watching you don't push the rubber grommets out when re-fitting to the pins/posts

what a f....ing difficult is to remove the 7 bolt?!?!? the headlamp cannot be separated from the front, there are no connectors to detach the cable!

hope no other bulb I need to change... but we know which is the response:)

I generally put some rags on the front fender and let the headlight unit just lay there while I do the work. The only connectors are inside the unit

Yes there are razorjack, there's two, on the left side of the frame behind head stock. They are mounted on little lugs on frame rails. - undo first before removing cowl. You just have to be careful when sliding headlamp up off its two pegs ; I put a rag between cowl and bar clamp as it 'can' come up suddenly.
