Removing the headlight

Do I have to separate my trees to get that headlight bracket out? If so, is the lower tree threaded? I'm dropping a unity headlight into the bike when it arrives and that bracket is killing me.

No you don't have to separate your tree to get your bucket bracket off.

The legend speaks! I can't figure out how to do it without either pulling the top bridge or cutting the bracket.

Actually on the ACE you do need to separate the trees about 3/4" to get the bracket out; it is mounted between the upper and lower trees with pins into each unlike the Spirit which just bolts to the bottom tree

Gyah!! Who designed this thing!? I guess I shouldn't be disgruntled - some jacktard backed into my bike last week and I couldn't get it completely straightened back out. Maybe they bent the bracket wen they torqued the front end. Everything else is fine - checked the axle, bearings, disc, tubes, no damage; I just had a little bumper rub mark, some dried gasoline, and a 2" circle where their tail pipe was jammed into my front tire. The bike stayed up, though, thank goodness.

I just used a crow bar on the bottom and pried the bracket out maybe 1/4 inch
