It's a bulb - an H4 bulb, that is inserted into the reflector.

It's relatively easy on an 1100...I believe a 1200 requires removing some of the front garnish and trim. A 1200 owner will have to speak up on this one.

Pull the rubber back on the mirrors, remove the top bolt and loosen the lower bolt.
