They were a tad difficult to install but remembering the old axiom "with
perseverance and sweet oil you can screw a cat" I won. Used some hot air gun
help (use gloves), and used the plastic tie straps. I did not add a breather

Did note that I couldn't get the plastic fork covers to close tight, and was
going to use some more plastic ties for that but, needed a "Round Tuit". Been on
since just before '05 PCH ride so guess
they hold OK.
