I don't have any links on hand but if you google it there are lots of videos. I put Kuryakyn grips on mine recently and it was easy. I watched a couple of videos, read the instructions and had them on in about 20 minutes. Just do the throttle side first and when you glue the other one on make sure it's turned to match the throttle side before the glue sets. You have about about 10 seconds to adjust it.

The best thing I found for getting the left one off is called Freeze Off.

I just opened it up a bit with a screwdriver and sprayed in some WD-40. Slipped right off.
