1. Remove the plastic caps covering the brake and clutch master cylinder clamp bolts, remove the clamp bolts and clamps. Pull the master cylinders away from the handlebars and let them rest on the fairing storage compartment covers. 2. Using a heat gun or a hair dryer warm up the old lamps one at a time until they are hot to the touch then carefully peel them away from the switch housings. 3. Remove any remaining adhesive from the old lamps left on the housings using rubbing alcohol. Locate the wire harness to the lamp connectors covered with heat shrink tubing. Using a sharp knife carefully cut the heat shrink tubing open lengthwise. Carefully taking caution to not cut the wires, peel the heat shrink tubing open, then away and off the connection. Unplug the lamps from the harness. Replace any of the gold pin connectors on the harness if needed with the new ones supplied. 4. Slide the heat shrink tubing over the gold pins and wire harness ends. Carefully plug the gold pins from the harness onto the lamp connectors (NOTE: the metal connectors on the lamps can break if bent from side to side).Turn on the ignition and verify that all three lamps are working. Slide the heat shrink tubing over the connections and shrink using a heat gun, hair dryer or lighter being careful not to melt the lamp ends. 5. Using your heat gun or hair dryer warm one of the switch housings and the matching lamp so that they are hot to the touch (about 140 degrees). Peel the backing from the lamp, carefully place in position, press firmly onto housing, wrap the tail of the lamp with the wires around the housing and then rub over the entire lamp firmly several times to ensure good adhesion. 6. Reassemble the master cylinders and clamps onto the handlebars being careful not to pinch the wires or lamps.
