Post Replace front reflector
Hi all I have a 2009 Zuma that I recently dumped. No damage except for the right side reflector. I have seen in another post to get at it you need to remove the top 4 leg guard screws, the "Headlight Hardware" I have no idea what that means. And the headlight guard. I just need to get at it to change the reflector. Can anyone tell me exactly what needs to be removed to get at this? Thanks

You'll have to pull off the front plastics to access it. It's actually really simple, but I've done it more than 10 times easily.

Pull the 7 screws holding the leg shield
Pull 3 screws for headlight guard (2 allens and 1 hex I think)
Pull the 2 mounts the lower headlight guard Allen bolts go into...small Allen goes into bigger Allen
Pull 10mm hex bolt between headlights

Then you just have to kinda pull on the front piece to get it off. I always start at the top. It takes some force cuz it's all clipped together. Then once you have it off, just unplug the headlight wire harness and you can move it to wherever you'd like to work on it.

When you say the 7 screws holding the leg guard is the 7th screw the Larger screw in the middle?
Not sure what you mean by below, can you elaborate please?
Pull the 2 mounts the lower headlight guard Allen bolts go into...small Allen goes into bigger Allen

Also I am not pulling the leg guard put the cowling?
I was hoping I could just pull the leg guard and get my hands in there.
Thank you for responding

Ya, 7 total....3 on each side and 1 in the center up top!

So there is 3 screws/bolts that hold on the headlight guard frame. The 2 lower ones are a 5mm Allen head I believe. When you remove those, there's 2 larger Allen screw you need to remove as well to get the front cowling off.

Post Re: Replace front reflector
Hey guys. I'm a relatively new rider, just picked up a 2015 BWs(Zuma) back in July. Took a bit of a tumble last week on the way to work. Approaching a stop sign, my front tire slipped on some wet leaves and went down hard on the left side. Bike is still in pretty good shape, seems my shoulder took the brunt of it, dislocated and fractured, but at least health care is free up here in Canada.

Anyways, the front reflector on the left side seems to have sustained the worst of the damage. What I am trying to determine is whether a replacement reflector (32S-H5110-00) is enough to fix it, or if I need to replace the leg shield 1 panel (32S-F8311-01-WL). The black plastic got roughed up pretty good, but I am unsure where one part ends and the other begins.
And from what I have seen on the forum, the BWs and Zuma might have slight variations regarding said reflector.
Referencing this diagram, https://www.bikebandit.com/oem-parts/20 ... 2sch919912
there appears to be a piece of black plastic attached to the leg shield panel/part that the reflector mounts to. But the drawing is so basic, I am not sure how much I can trust it. Also a bit of a shame to drop $50 on the leg shield panel when I only need to replace that small piece of plastic.
If anyone can give me any insight, would be much appreciated, that is if anyone even notices my post!

Post Re: Replace front reflector
The reflector is attached to the front painted facia. You do not need to buy a new painted plastic panel just to replace the reflector. The painted panel can be removed by removing the four small panel screws on the upper half of the black leg shield... then remove the one screw (zuma) or two screws (bws) next to or above the head light/headlight guard. Lastly, remove the the headlight guard by removing the two screws and spacers from the bottom of the headlight guard. With all hardware removed you can start to remove the front painted panel w/headlight attched by prying it away from the black leg shield... start from where they meet at the top and work your way down until they separate. Have a chair nearby to support the headlight & painted cover assembly while you remove and replace the reflector.

Post Re: Replace front reflector
Thx for your response. I have done the dual headlight mod so I have taken that cover off before, I am just waiting for my left arm to be a little more useful before I dive into that project. Does anyone know if the replacement reflector is just the reflector piece, or if it comes with the black plastic base as well?
The roughed up black plastic isn't too much of a concern for me, but I do already have dreams of a larger scooter so I will have to decide if replacing the black plastic will benefit me at all for resale purposes. I was considering the Yamaha Xmax 292cc, but the scooter market in Canada is quite limited, in fact you can't find any new scooters up here above 150cc it seems. I would have to travel down to the US to find an Xmax, but then I noticed BMW is releasing their BMW c400x for 2019 in Canada(and I think the US). So I might go test ride one of those in the spring. The Xmax and BMW are very comparable in price too (taking exchange rate into consideration) and I wouldn't have to deal with trying to get it over the border.

Again any insight much appreciated, and thx to all members as this forum has been an extremely useful resource.

Post Re: Replace front reflector
The front reflector includes the black plastic base/trim. I've purchased a replacement front plastics without the reflector and it does not include the black plastic reflector base/trim part. Since that part is not on the parts list, it should be included with the reflector(s) when you order them.

Post Re: Replace front reflector
Awesome thanks again. I will be putting my order in and hopefully it will work out.
Gotta love Partzilla, $80 with shipping to Canada for 9 parts in my cart, it will just be a question of how long it will take.
I also ordered some cheap reflectors with intigrated LED's off of Banggood.com, so going to try wiring them up to the turning signal.
