Removed the board from the plastic housing.
You don't need to remove the start switch to do this.
If you press on the start switch where the picture shows it will pop throught the hole.

With board removed you have access to other lamp positions.
Insert the lamp for the start switch.

There's an accessory lamp which doesn't have anything in front of it on my sled but if
yours does you can get the lamp in without removing the Hi/Low beam switch.
You just have to get a small screwdriver in the lamp's slot on an angle and you can twist-lock it in.
If you do remove the Torx screws and the switch careful the spring doesn't go flying.

To install the lamp for the grip heater switch you have to remove the small silver T8 Torx screw on it.
Next bend the switch away from the board only as much as needed, (see picture).
Then insert the bulb and using a small screwdriver on an angle twist-lock it into place.
Then bend the switch back into position and put the screw back in.

Now put the board back into the black console.
Get it so the start switch is poking through it's hole on an angle, (like the angle it popped out at).
Then push on the back of the board opposite the start switch and it will pop back in.

Now put the console back on the bars and finish up.

Hopes this helps.

Yup, That's actually what I used to do it.
Just thought a couple more pictures would make it less intimidating for some people.
Was doing it anyway, and had my camera handy so wasn't any trouble.

So i need 3 bulbs to complete the job? I looked them up and .65 sounds like a deal. Are these bulbs good for a 2009 xp?
