Headlight upgrade - 2009 and older models covered

This is a video I made to show how to take your 2009 and older headlights, and with a few parts from your dealer convert it to the 2010 and up style. The benefits are that you can use any after market bezel, including the 2010 and up H-D, change your headlight bulbs without removing the outer fairing,.. and easy access incase you drop a wellnut in your fairing.
Part numbers are 67959-10 for the trim ($43.95) and 67980-10 for the shorter adjustment bolts (optional, and are $5.50 each). So for $60 you can do this mod without having to buy the entire assembly. There are other ways, including modifying your existing trim but this is the right way.

For a wounded man shall say to his assailant,
'If I live, I will kill you. If I die, You are forgiven.'
Such is the rule of honor.

Those priced I posted are list price,.. my dealer doesn't give me any kinda discount. Most places will take a little off for ya and make it even cheaper yet
