Looks like you have to remove the front seat, frame front covers, frame rear upper cover, and frame center cover. Then the light is attached with 2 fasteners. Pics attached.

Not difficult to remove

remove both seats - remove the screws holding the upper covers of the subframe - remove the screws holding the tailpiece - this can be removed carefully by lifting the upper covers.

The rear light can then be unscrewed and removed easily

Pretty easy just need to use some common sense and undo few screws. It's amazing when you try to do something all you need is to look and do it.

But you need to apply yourself and just look. This bike is easy to work on. Especially the rear end. Instead of writing how hard an easy job is, learn by looking and doing it. My nephew is 12 and can change a rear wheel, tighten a chain, and probably disassemble the rear end AND without it being the end of the world!
So again no don't know everything but I know a fair bit...
Take it easy just breathe...

Never mind that, I've a more important question.

Does your bike live in your living room or do you live in your garage?

Either way, I'm well jealous, great set up
