Hi folks, new owner here. I am fed up with headlight vibration causing flickering and removed the headlight unit in order to measure the soft rubber grommets that are responsible for the movement. I am making up some Delrin bushes to replace the grommets. I’ll take a chance on bulb life!
Anyhow, headlight came out fairly easily, changed the bulb for an Osram Nightracer 110 and then went to ‘pop’ it back in. It was a total pain. It took me an age to ease the unit back in and caused a tiny bit of damage to the very edge of the plastic cowling surrounding the headlight. There must be an easier way?
The two mounting brackets where the U clips mount are the problem being the widest part. Anyone else had a similar problem with their GS?

I'm having a similar issue except I can't get the thing out! I also have a plan to tighten up the headlight assembly but try as I might, I can't get the bugger out. It keeps getting stuck at the point you seem be stuck at while replacing it. I'd love to hear how you got yours out.
