You need to remove the factory adapter base from the old bulb, install on the new Osram. You got the right bulbs...

First of all I would like to thank alot of people regarding the factory adapter plug that is on the end of the H7 55W bulb, it really saved alot of time. I would have been in a fog trying to get that bulb to fit.

I wish someone had a tutorial regarding changing the headlight because there are a few things that if I knew would have saved me some time.

I have big hands and found that my hands could not fit in any form under the instrument cluster so I found that the removal of the left plastic on the bike gave me the best option for changing the bulb. I removed plug then the rubber waterproof gasket, minimal difficulty. Then metal strap that holds the H7 bulb in the socket was next, you have to press downand then pull to the right to unhook the bulb.

Once unhooked the bulb should just fall out. Be careful not to touch the bulb as others have warned of the oils and remove the adapter on the end of the bulb. Now the new bulb is set up and a trick to remember is to line the H7 bulb up with the dip in the ring to the 10 or 11 o'clock position which fits right in the socket, it is depressed in that area specifically for the bulb. Re-attach the wire clip and install the rubber gasket, then plug in and it should take 15 mins.
