    1. Buy box of Band-aids.
    2. Pull the Dash meter cover.
    3. Remove both Side covers.
    4. Remove the Seat.
    5. Remove the shelter.
    6 Open box of Band-aids (You'll need them soon)
    7.Remove Cluster loom from the handlebar.
    8.Follow loom to the connector on left side of cowl.(White plastic retainer holds both ends in place)
    9. Disconnect defective cluster connector.
    10.Connect new cluster connector.
    11. Apply band-aids as needed. (At this point there is blood everywhere if you followed instructions correctly!)
    12 Remove spilled blood with hydrogen peroxide, that you deposited on everything visable!!
    13. Reassemble everything in reverse order.
    14. Give yourself a loli-pop (For a job well done)

      Well its not the left hand side?????????
      Jobs done

      What you will need is a Philips head screw driver

      A Blade screwdriver

      A 10mm socket

      A swear jar

      Remove the gauges surround

      Lift the gauges up out of the way

      Remove the petrol fill surround

      Remove the Right hand side Tupperware

      Now follow the loom from the left hand controls

      You will see where the loom is held by wires bent over

      Bend them back out of the way to release the loom

      You will see how the loom goes around to the right and up into a hidy hole

      Now you will see an alloy bracket that a connector is held their

      Now the alloy bracket is holds the connector by 2 Philips head screws that you cant undo? SUCKS

      Take the Blade screwdriver and use it to wedge the connection off the bracket (Too easy)

      Now with hand like a Japanese grab the connectors

      The connector for the left hand controls is the smaller one

      Like in the photo

      The gl1800 will have also a smaller one which is for the Cruise Control
