Thanks for the tips.
OK, I went out and did it. Thought the air ducts ended up staying attached to the bike and the whole front fairing did come off.
I got the old ugly turn signals off and I got the new short stalks mounted. It already looks 100% better.
Been working on getting everything back together, and had it like 90% done and one of the screw grommets for the air duct (screw that goes upward from the bottom of the under headlight fairing piece) popped off so I got to pull everything off again, fix that grommet and then pop it back on.
A few words of advice to others tackling the project.
1. Don't forget to plug your electric harness back in before you mount everything back on.
2. Set a chair or table or something in front of your bike, put the front fairing on that, plug it in, and TEST THE SIGNALS to make sure they work before you mount everything back on. If there is anything wrong with the wiring, you get a fast blink. Test both the left and right turn signals (front and rear) and test the hazards. NOTE: On both my front and rears the hot wire was a yellow wire with a stripe on it and the ground wire was solid green. On the short stalks they had all black wires, one with a stripe (hot) and one solid (ground) so that make it easy, the fronts hooked up the same way as the rears.
3. While all that stuff is off of there, not a bad time to do some cleaning, so I did.
4. Thread the adaptors, washers and bolt and any heat shrink over the wire before you splice it into the existing stock wire. (Like Red mentioned, the connector is too big.) Also for the 02's that wire plug is is behind the headlights, not down in the side of the fairing.
5. Might want to have a helper to get the fairing on and off so you don't drop/bump/scratch it. I had my next door neighbors wife come over and help me for like 10 minutes (she's pregnant so her boobs are HUGE, Heh Heh) to balance the fairing while I plugged the harness back in and lined it up.
6. To re-attach, might want to start by threading the upper fairing back onto the mounting holes for the mirrors. Starting there, you know you got it lined up right.
7. Pay close attention to where the front fairing will connect to the engine fairing. There is an alignment tab, which goes in the back, not the front, so make sure you got that lined up as you thread stuff back on.
Back to my job:
So I never took the spring clamps off the air ducts. Getting the air ducts lined back up was the hardest part.
I must admit for a 2 hours job, things were really easy. I was scared to tackle the project. Also changing those huge front turn signals is a great cosmetic mod, it greatly improves the front look of the bike.
So taking a break for dinner and will finish her up tonight.
