Bulb Replacement

My headlight bulb burned out and I can't figure out how to get it out. It is on my zx 11 and despite all my effort it doesn't seem to want to come out. If anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated. I went to the website and looked at the parts diagram which makes it look like it should just rotate out, which it hasn't done. Thanks in advance for the help.

I sold my ZX11 almost 5 years ago, so I'm going on memory, but the bulb should rotate & pull out. Make sure that there isn't a wire retaining clip around the base of the bulb. If there is, gently pry it out.

If it's not clipped in it's prolly rusted. Spray The socket area with WD40 and work it in. Then grab the bulb with some gloves push in and twist CCW.

A few ccs short of a full litre.
