City Lights / Wedge bulb / T10 or whatever

Folks, has anyone found out how to easily replace those 'city light' bulbs on a 2015 versys without tearing the entire bike's face apart? I've tried to reach them many ways but my hands are bigger than my brain and my laziness larger than the real function of those bulbs.

There are no real short cuts. I used electrical tape to hold the bulb in the push in socket as vibration will cause it to come out slightly over time making it seem like bulb failed. Using white LED bulbs will improve visibility in daylight due to contrast.

It takes less than 10 minutes to remove the front cowl, change the bulbs, and put everything back together. You'll spend more time trying to find a shortcut than doing it the correct way. Trust me, I tried...

Agreed, less than 3 minutes start to finish.
