Under the bottom of the top frame rail (next to the neck) there is a plastic insert (about 6" long) that pops out (two tabs stick out frame sides).
Then pull out the wiring harness till you see the 3 wire AMP connectors that go to signal bullets (they branch off of larger type connectors). On mine (the 3 wire AMPS) one was black (right) and one was white (left).
Do a search for Muds "AMP connectors" to see how to release the wires from these. Make a note of where the wires were in case the wires going out don't have the same color. There are numbers on the AMP tabs to help keep track. Some people cut the wires and resolder or crimp, I took them out of the AMPs, but it was difficult for a dummy like me, but finally got it.
Wrap masking tape around all the end metal pins (to keep from scraping other wires) and put some slickum on the exposed wire.
Now up at the bullets you're going to have to open up the switch housings on both sides ( I had to remove the throttle cables for this) and clip the plastic tie that ties the bullet wire.
Then you will have to remove the large rubber grommets on each side of the frame neck to lessen the friction to pull the wire out. These grommets are a bear sometimes to get out. There is a split on the top section, attack this first with stiff fingers since this is where it is weakest. A flat screwdriver wrapped with masking tape helps.
Then you as carefully as possible, pull the wire out from the bullet area until it all comes up from the bottom. I had to work mine back and forth a little before they finally came out.
Then you install your bullets on the forks and fish the same wires back thru the frame neck side hole and push pins back in AMPs.
Hope you have better luck than me. My right turn front signal don't work and I am having trouble tracking down where the problem is.
