Re: Front turn signal replacement.
If your flexible and patient you can swap them out with the fairing on, if not the first thing you will need to do is take the upper fairing off. Pop the rear panels out, just pull them gently and they will come out. If the side panels seems to be stuck there is a screw towards the bottom on either side, go ahead and take those out too. There are 2 screws on the under side right near where the rear panels attach, take those out. There are 2 more bolts under the headlight, take those out. After that remove the mirrors (a good time to swap out the stocks for better ones). You should be able to gently slide the upper fairing forward. You will have to disconnect the headlight, just grab the connector on the back of the bulb and wiggle it off. There will be a small connector for the turn signals you will have to disconnect as well. You should now be able to slide the fairing all the way off the front. If it seems stuck, gently flex each side open a little, the coolant line would fight me a little on mine, be gentle! Once you have it off, now you can change out the light. Remove the 1 philips screw that holds it on. Follow the wires back to the middle of the fairing and you'll find 2 connectors, disconnect both of them and the light should come free. If the new light you bought does not come with the connectors on it you can disassemble the old light and remove the wires and replace them in the new one. You will not have to cut the wires. Follow the same directions in reverse to re-assemble.
