You don't need to remove the triple tree. Just loosen the 4 pinch bolts on each side and follow the directions that came with the signals. It was pretty easy, I just did mine tonight. Be sure to check your bikes signal wiring to see if it's reversed.

Just follow the instructions that came with them. I used an engine hoist with straps around the risers to lift the front end up. Do both sides at the same time, I found the shocks slid down about a 1/4 inch at a time really easily, otherwise you are fighting the compression of the springs.
Super easy.

I got one at Pep Boya a few years ago for like $30 with a $30 rebate. Or if you have a Harbor Freight near you they have them pretty cheap. Also Sears has them for around $100.
