Question Replacing the smaller wind deflectors

How easy is it to replace the 4 wind deflectors? I just recently bought a new Cee Baileys wind screen and now the plastic deflectors looks a lot worse.
I also want to know if it is easy to tint those as well. The wind screen I purchased is ice blue.

I don't know about tinting, but the adjustable deflectors are three screws each, I bet they're not cheap. The top ones, you have to remove the windshield and then the cowling. Two small screws and they're out.

http://www.beemerboneyard.com has a set of the lowers for 80 dollars that are listed in excellent shape. As well as a upper set listed in good shape for 35 dollars. Go to the site and look under 1200 category, under the windshield section. You can also get a local plastic fabricator to buff the one's you have out. They would also be in a better position to answer the tinting question

May we never find the end of the road!
