    Thanks. Admittedly I am not the most experienced person using a wrench. The Ratchet I am using is only, by estimate, 6-7 inches long. Generally speaking, Should I get a much longer ratchet or wrench for this process which is much longer to generate the 40 Lbs of torque that presumably it was put on with, or possibly a breaker bar? The thing that scares me here is that those studs and the seal that they are part of cost 109 dollars apiece so I don't want to destroy them in the process.

    I have a 2012 GSA and would like to install a set of these. Will I need a new (longer) brake line?
    Thanks in advance for the help!

    Kroil is great. Believe it or not, the penetrating oil that has performed the best in many tests is a 50-50 mix of ATF and acetone.

    Just in case you have a 2007GSA with the fog light switch I had moved it onto the actual handlebars instead of suspending on two screws like the OP. I made a little aluminium strap with two holes and hung it like a bicycle bell.
