Question Changing front light

Hello everybody

I have a 2007 Versys 650 (bought a month ago and have not found a manual yet).
As of yesterday the front light does not work. All other light work (the two goofy ones on the side, high-beam, turn signals).
DO I need to remove the fairing to check the bulb?
What do I have to do to check and change the light. Can it be a fuse issue? Several days ago I connected a cellphone charge to the battery maybe it has something to do with it?

Thanks a million in advance
SW

I believe I either READ or did it myself, but some people can get their hand in behind to change bulbs, from behind the fork reaching UP (you need to kneel beside your bike to do it).

thanks everybody

There is 3 days left on my warranty so after looking at those photos (thanks for posting it by the way) I thought I better use the warranty and get them t do do this. It might be something more serious than just a burnt bulb. The garage had a very tiny mechanic (I kid you not) and he passed his hand through the opening in front of the key and first took out a plastic ring then disconnected the connector and removed the bulb (It was burnt) and after some wiggling he fitted in the new bulb and the ring. So it can be done but you need to find somebody of the right size if you don't want to remove fairing
