Yes, it is that easy...
Remove the headlight and disconnect the three wires for each front signal (one set is light-blue/light-blue with white stripe/ green... the other is the same, but wire colors are orange instead of light-blue)
Unbolt the stems from the mount (not so easy to reach one on left side), then remove entire assembly with wiring.
Unscrew single screw holding lamp housing to stem, and pull wiring through old stem.
Now, if you bought cheap, aftermarket stems... the opening down the middle or end of the stem will be too small to push all three wires through at once... a trick I used is to tie a piece of fishing line to each of the bullet connectors on the wiring. Drop the three pieces of fishing line through the stems, then carefully feed one wire at a time through the hole, using the fishing line as a "tow-rope".
Once you get the wire through the stems... remove the fishing line from the wiring connectors and reverse the process to re-assemble.
