Dumb question/high beam not lighting
I'm a bit new to the bike so go easy. Looking the manual over front to back doesn't detail how to pull apart the lights to get to the H7. Prior to this I've never had a bike with a fairing so I never had lights like these. The little rubber cover with the pull tabs comes off, I just want to make sure I don't tear anything. I hate getting replacement parts. So do I just twist/pull on the cover until it comes off to expose the bulb socket? Or do I pull the socket first?
I guess I should explain the symptoms. Previous owner put in those nice looking but somewhat crappy blue lights (looks good, poor light), rode around with the high beams on all day. I buy the bike, switch to low beams, stop for dinner, then for the 200 miles home the highs don't work anymore (indicator does come on the display though), except for once while right in the middle, which makes me suspect it's not the bulb. Thanks!
