    erm...

    Well, you will be able to open the switch up, and do the mod, then you might have to botch it, and use something like super glue, or black sealant to hold the switch together.

    I would only do it this way as a LAST RESORT!!!

    Drill through the head... then take a slightly larger lefty screw and just start screwing it down :p (That was hard to explain ;) )

    Have you tried turning it with a set of wire cutters? As in get the sharp edges in the middle and on the outside and pinch and twist? should do the job they aren't that tight in there.

    How you manage to round the edge lol? was you using an electric screwdriver?

    If you do this you will still have the remainder of the screw in there minus the head. Plus the plastic screw hole bits arent that big so I would be careful about trying to put a larger screw in there. I personally would try take the screw out first.

    If above dont work, try long nose pilers.

    The short one is extremely tight, so when I turned the screwdriver just slipped and continued to slip every time. still have some thread left but not much. Think I'll try to freeze the screw, and see if that loosen it up a bit.

    Just did this mod :) Works like a charm and was super easy...
    The short bolt was a bit tricky to get out, but finally got it out (After slipping a couple times)
    What i did was turn the other way for maybe 1/10th round... Which loosened it up, and did not damage anything... :)
    Took me about 15 mins :)

    Looks soo much better than one light! :D

    THANKS AZZ!

    TIP: Put something over the bike just incase you drop solder on it... and use something that wont scratch your bike.

    Yeah in theory should. Not sure I'd advise it. You wanna improve your visibility to other road users not decrease it.
