well first you will need to take the cover over your key switch off,then the way I did it was get a long extension and using a swivel head get down under the front and you will see the two nuts holding the switch in.Take the two nuts off forgot to say it will help if you take the false tank off too as it will help to get to the harness were the switch is plugged in.It will take a little wiggling to get the switch passed the air tubes for the front forks.Some have done it from the top with a wrench but my hands are to big to do it that way. Hope this helps,and good lock. Hal
