Re: Headlight clip
I have a Haynes manual which gives good enough instruction to remove the headlight assembly. I too do NOT see how the clip could have come loose. But having had the headlight assembly out I will tell you that it is not that bad of a job at all. I would advise a manual to guide you however.
As for servicing this generation of RT, I will say it is one of the least labor intensive and straight forward bikes I have had for many years. Meaning it is easier and cheaper than a new Super Tenere, Suzuki V Stroms, etc. Yes, the headlight bulb replacement could have been better engineered. Yet once you have the knack of it, I can do it in a few minutes. From the front of the bike, never needing to look into the bulb housing. Bugger up the clip using force, and the nightmare begins.
