Nothing to it, I'm sure you can find plenty of tutorials on YouTube.

Just make sure that the replacement levers are compatible with stock and activate the clutch switch, not sure how the brake switch is activated, maybe not the lever.

Apply some grease to the pivots, the clutch cable barrel connector and the master cylinder contact area.

Remove the 10mm lock nut from underneath the lever first, and then withdraw the shoulder bolt from the top. Ensure that the new lever has the same protrusions underneath to activate the switches, and lightly smear grease on all touching surfaces. There is thread on the bottom part of the perch, do not overtighten when reassembling, and refit the locknut last.
Gert and vboost like this.
