Hi- for the front, did you splice into the factory wiring harness? I'm trying to learn about/decide whether it makes sense to open the dash and connect the aftermarket wires there. I have the Rizoma-> Grizo harness, but I'm not sure whether it is applicable to the front. Or how to get into the dash to check the factory connections, for that matter.

the factory connections are the same 2 wire plug as used in the back indicators - i think it is the 2.8mm mini connector - this USA site looks like them [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
There are two allen screws (4mm i think) holding the intruments to the top yoke visible from on top. There are two more (one from each side) holding the instruments to the top of the hoop that supports the headlight and indicators. You also need to undo the 4 self tapping screws that hold the silver frame to the crome body then the intrument pack lifts out and you can see the indicator connections.
Mine is very fiddly to get back so i chose to cut the indicator wires close to the indicators and put insulated crimp connectors in with a protective plastic spiral to stop them wearing on cables and pipes

Very, very helpful-- thank you!
I was sure hoping it was just going to require pulling the top bezel and four screws!

From memory....firstly the Rizomas come with the ballast resistors that need to be connected into the new LEDs. Basically I stuck the resistors in near the the coils at each side; ran the original wires that went to the OEM indicators back to the resistors & ran the new wires from Rizomas back to the same resistors. Because the Rizomas plug into their own resistors, the only 'connecting' modification was to cut the spade ends off the OEM wires & solder on bullets to connect to the new connectors. I didn't go near the instrument dashboard as I needed all the wiring to reach the resistors. In general (and unless I see need for connector) I prefer to bare/solder/shrinkwrap wires together to keep tidy wirelines.
