    Cant get tail light lense off?

    I can't seem to get the tail light lens off. I looked in the Clymer manual and took out the two screws that hold it on but it won't budge. Am I missing something? Is there some trick to it? Any help will be greatly apreciated. Thanks in advance.

    Mine comes off easily after removing the two visible screws... No need to remove the seat.

    A heat gun should work as well. Just be carefull not to melt the lense.

    whoa whoa whoa.... the pre lenses should come off quite easily.

    From what I remember, you have to remove the rear seat to get at a screw, but it's been a while.

    On my 01 Kat there is a screw under the tail lens that I had to remove. I also had to seperate the 2 halves of the tail plastic. That screw also held the lens. I know your bike is not exactly the same as mine but I'm just trying to help the best I can. Good luck with the project.

    you would hav etoi remove the whole assembly for that.. i took a small screw driver and gently pryed all around the lens to pop it off. Be careful though.

    How do you go about imersing the tail light in water? Would a hair dryer, heat gun, hot sun work?

    If the older ones are anything like the +98 you'd have to immerse it in hot water to loosen up the heat sensitive goop first.

    just dont pry too hard or too quickly or u could crack the edges of the light.

    Use a knife or a screw driver and gently pry it off, it should pop off with just a little pressure.
