    There is a pin you push to get the wires out...... It's covered in your Harley manual........

    Like Tattooo said.

    A straight o-ring pick would be an adequate tool to push the release pin.

    You need a pin extraction tool. Cheap and useful.
    I never had any luck with a pick, little screwdriver or anything else.

    This. You'll end up screwing up the housing using the wrong 'tool', and then it won't retain the pin (or socket) correctly.

    He's saying the tool is how you keep from breaking the ends....... Well that's my take on it.....

    Those Lisles work well. Handy for other vehicles too.

    I doubt it.... So far he has had nothing to add to this thread and does not seem to know how to take the advice that he asked for... I guess he is more concerned about being "yelled" at and the words people use.

    I guess i will add my thoughts on this. My question would be, Why are you taking the pins out to change the turn signals? Why not just tap into the wires that are already there?

    Sorry for the slow responses, I took the advice and ordered the tool, should be in today, haven't got time to get to the wires/ order the tool until this week...had other projects that needed attention....I would just tie into the existing but the wires are chewed up and look like shit so im going to use the new ones that are on the new lights....I also need to remove the wires for my horn...I plan on getting rid of most the control switches on my handlebars....
