    Hi, My bike is 2006 XL 1200c and I have a couple of questions...

    1. What is involved in replacing a set of handgrips? Any special procedure that works best?

    2. What about the swing arm? Is this something I should have done professionally? Is this something the average person can do?

    3. Also...what about the housings vs. total component replacement for the signal housings, brake master cylinder, and the like? Too much of a pain to do ourselves or not?

    4. I have moderate mechanical abilities...not great, but can handle the basics.
