Cleaning inside of R11S headlamp

Is there a way to clean the inside of the headlamp on my R1100S? I just happened to look at it while (it was) lit, and it is really dirty in there.

Thanks

You might try taking it apart and running it through the dish washer, (when your wife isn't looking).

Thanks, Bill. I'll look into that when I have the side panels off next weekend.

dish washer soap has clay in it for abrasion, I would expect it to take off the reflector.

I would get eyeglass cleaner solution and some long qtips

Never had to clean an R1100S headlamp, but on the Ducatis, I pour in half a cupful of methylated spirits (I think its rubbing alcohol in the US) and give it s slosh about.

Pour it out and leave the rest to evaporate. Works well.

Cheers,
Mark
