Hello,
For 3 months I'm an happy owner of a 2016 CBR500R (orange/black :love:), which is btw my first bike.
Due to the present season, I ride a lot at night, and would like to replace original bulbs by LED ones.
I have the new ones (H7 socket)
BUT
I struggle to find how to install them.
The problem is my headlight module is not like this (easy : just turn the caps to direct access to bulbs):

Hood Automotive lighting Font Bumper Gadget


But like this :

Auto part Train Font Camera accessory Automotive wheel system


So, my question is :

How can I access to the bulbs ?

Thanks in advance !

I believe the 2016 CBR500R has LED sealed headlights (not serviceable); bulbs cannot be replaced.
It is suppose to last a lifetime but if it fails ... check out the price of a new headlight and you'll fall off your chair! :)

The "1st series" 2013-2015 CBR500R use H7 halogen bulbs.

Thanks eds for you answer
OMG I think you're right, the 2016 CBR500R has already LED headlights :eek:
But the beam is not very strong, I think I'll add some beam for riding the rural roads curves in the winter night
