    Are they the factory bars? Check at dealer. With the repair manual it will give you step by step instructions. Not very hard.

    Really easy to change, if the wires are ran external.

    Just make sure if you decide to upgrade, to make sure your cables and wires are long enough :s

    One of the most important little things to do, is pull the front brake lever and put a spacer (the eye of a small tie wrap works) between the lever and perch.
    If you don't it's very easy to break the stoplight switch when reassembling.

    Check ebay for replacement bars. It's an option that could save.......
