That is one hell of a job , i changed a few when i was workin as a mecanic in a Honda shop , the bolts are hard to see cuz they're between the fork and the fairing , and they don't have heads to prevent theives from changing the switch in a few seconds and leaving with the bike .
The new bolts have heads but as you torque them the head breaks , leaving you with a flat round head almost like a cariage bolt , its an anti-theft precaution .
Good luck !!!!
