R&R parking / running lights

I am interested in replacing the clear bulbs with blue bulbs. Reason being that the Police here in Richmond Virginia have always on blue lights on their roof. Even if you are not looking for the police, these lights "announce" their presence in a crowd.

Seems like it wouldn't hurt on a motorcycle.

My challenge is in removing the clear bulbs.

Manual says "pull them out"

Clymer says same.

I pull, but no love, and no discussion on this forum.

Is the solution to simply PULL HARDER?

Twist then pull.

I think you will find those police will want to stop you and admire your blue bulbs. It is illegal.
