This might help with the W clips.
Either I'm just lucky or I have the knack, but I just don't find those clips to be tricky at all. Just remember which way round they go, and they clip on and off easy. Press down and in on one side to remove - you might need something like a flat screwdriver, but usually can be done by hand. Put one side under the rim when replacing, then press in the other side - down and in.Mine is the Adjure unit, from UK supplier but same brand as NField Gear supply.The instruction sheet (scabby photocopy) mentions an "extended bezel trim ring" which is available if there is a gap between the lamp and the rim, but this doesn't apply to the G5 - just the centreing thing as I mentioned. I'm assuming the C5 has the same nacelle...?
The screw on top (12 0 Clock) of the rear rim opens up a clip which holds it all together. Same as the original light. Should be a straight switchover - everything goes back the same way as before. All that's changed is the unit inside.
Ah! I thought you were doing both the 7" conversion and the Tri-bar install. Feel free to ignore most of what I said Scott
The 5 3/4" headlight is a US only thing. In order to meet US DOT specs your headlight must be adjustable. So they sunk a 5 3/4" light with adjustment apparatus into the 7" original non-adjustable bezel. The 7" is fine for the rest of the world but we're special.There were one or two posts that I saw noting that after installing the 7" headlight it was not aligned properly, another few other notes of small wedges in the bezel to correct, but it seems to work just fine for most people.Scott
The Adjure Tri Bar light is DOT approved. And, Singh, it gives WAY more light than the stock light.I had no idea that U.S. bikes came with 5 3/4" lights. So do they have a different nacelle, or are they adapted somehow?Look here:: www.atvconnection.com/Features/Product_reviews/adjureheadlight.cfm

Looks good though, don't it....
Singh - Thanks for the pic. All is now clear. Why do they fit those smaller lights to U.S. bikes....? Scott - yes I'd missed the point about adjustability. Mine seems fine as fitted, to my untutored eye....Looks good though, don't it....
singh, did you get that wonderfull letter in the mail, from our state, regarding inspections?
GHG: Now that I read it, I think that we no longer have to go for inspection !! But we still need to have bikes registered. Then why remove registration decal from license plate, that reminds us when to renew registration ? What am I missing. Any thoughts or is it being NJ !
