Just remove the tank shelter or faux cover, whichever you want to call it and remove the air cleaner box. The coils are mounted below the fuse panel in front of the air box. 2 bolts attach them to the frame mounting tabs. Pretty easy to see once the air filter box is out of the way. It removes by simply removing the lid, remove the filter and there are 2 long bolts holding it to the intake. Remove the breather tube and drain lines and lift it strait up and out. Pretty easy.. Are they bad or are you performing an upgrade? The oem coils are pricey, there is an alternative if you are replacing faulty units. I can let you know if you are interested.
