Acerbis Handguards - How to install?

Got some Dual Roads today. Really no instructions to install in the box, and Acerbis' Web site was useless.

I want to make sure I do this right. Help?

I just put them on..... could it be that simple? They just bolt on? One doesn't need any of the hardware included with the handguards. Take the weighted barends off, then using the same bolt, bolt the handguards on?

like kilofox said is the easy way only problem is your not using the anti rotation piece that is probably useless on heavy bike anyway. I got the 1-800 number to accerbis and asked how to install and they told me to remove the welded insert for your bar weight and use the mounting hardware provided in the kit. Thats what I did using my dremel tool with cut off wheel, I cut the welds and the piece came right out. I was thinking to tack weld the acerbis part into the stock bars but I now have Pro Taper bars on so no problem there using their hardware.
