Great news... bulb changed without removing a single nut / bolt.
I knew one day small hands would come in useful...
Bike on the side stand with the steering to the left. Hand down inside the fairing and removed the dust cover and released the clip no problem.
Then knelt at the side of the bike, one had from the top and one up from the bottom of the fairing to release and then refit the bulb to the wiring connector. Back from the top, popped the bulb back in place and refitted the clip / dust cover. About 5 mins all in from thinking how the hell do I do this to job complete. Much quicker than last time when I took the alternate route and removed the screen and clock surround.
At least I know now I can do this one the road if needed.
