Did this one my 84 aspy its easier to get the nuts off from the bottom,you will need a long extension and a swivel head. Im not sure on your model some of the newer bikes have rivets and have to be chiseled off but if you look up thru the fairing from underneath you will see the two nuts holding the ignition switch on. Take the nuts off then from up on top you will need to wiggle it out. Oh and you need to take the false tank off and the cover around the key switch.Getting it out is not to hard but getting it bolted back in is a (pita). Hope this helps Hal
