I don't know for sure about the DRL, but my bike has an ABS insert where the DRL is. When I wrapped my fairings I took the headlight fairing off and to remove this insert there are 3 or 4 screws on the back side of the fairing. I would assume that the DRL uses these same attachment points. Unfortunately to get the headlight faring off you need to take off almost every other piece of plastic!  :003:

This link is quite useful - https://www.webbikeworld.com/bmw-s1000xr-fairing-panel-removal/

and so is the Haynes Manual.
