1. Take headlights off bike , remove bulbs and wires
2. Put headlights in oven (try not to melt them) till plastic tabs are soft enough to bend
3. remove clear lens from headlight
4. Install audi lights
5. Put back together

theres no lens in front of the headlights...just use the sticky adhesive on the led strip to mount and then wire it up to a 12v source. use a switch if you want to be able to turn on/off.

Here's a pretty detailed write-up w/pics for an install on a 600rr, sure it's the same concept. Good luck.
