Thread: On road trip - low beam out!

    On road trip - low beam out!

    Hey! I am on a road trip in Kentucky.
    My low beam is out on my 2012 k1600GTL.
    Is this something I can do on the road or do I have to find a dealer?

    Thanks!

    I'd think so. My low light burned out last year on a trip through WV.
    Had to go to Walmart to get a new one.

    Low beam out

    Best to google replacing it for your machine, there should be a couple of vids to show you what you need to do, then do it in the parking lot of the motel. I've been there twice with my '12 rt. First one went out and then a couple days later the 2nd one went. Fun-fun!

    As usual, best to replace both if one goes. Saves repeating the job - especially if you are on the road.

    Here are some instructions with pictures on a 2016 GTL. Not sure if it is the same for your bike or not though. Couldn't find anything specific to a 2012.
