lol... ddm LED...

Lol.... the DDM LED for my F1 lights cap thing popped off and now its stuck in my headlight Bad luck brian for me

My initial thought was to take off the whole fucking thing and take it out like that... but i was hoping some people on revscene have some insight on a much easier way to do it LOL I dont wanna take out the whole thing just to get that stupid thing out, but worse comes to worse i suppose i will have to.






Thx ahead of time T_T

Submitted a ticket to DDM to maybe get a free replacment, also asked for them to get a shop to take it out for me LOL just trying my luck

take your fairing off, then headlight housing, then you can shake it vertically till it drops...

if you check my fb, i had to do the same thing cause a bulb fell in my housing...hahaha

Other than doing a wheelie to shake it out back down, you'll have to remove the housing to get it out. If there's any sort of opening where the light bulb goes in, try using an extension with a magnet to grab it throught the hole. If it's plastic try some rolled up tape on the end of an extension.

Use a long bendy straw and tape it to a vacuum hose to get it out.

Suck it out.

Woo! DDM emailed me about my ticket I sent in, they claim that this is the first time they have heard about this issue and that it should not have happened unless there was some outside physical force. They sent me 2 free ones (same ones i think, and my original order only had 1 LED) no questions asked, very super easy! DDM has got a +1 from me! Good customer service
