I just did this a couple weeks ago. I had a heck of a time with one of the clips. I ended up using a very long straight slot screwdriver from the rear. If you get the handlebar angle right, you can see the clips and ears they engage with a good flashlight. After that, it was pretty straightforward to get the new bulb in. I think the previous owner had bent the clips a bit doing a change himself. Like others have said, I replaced the bulb with a long life bulb. Those Silverstar bulbs put out a lot of light, but they don't last long under the vibrations a bike subjects them to.
