How to manage turn signals?

Now that I have the new backrest/sissy bar assembly, I've gotten the old one almost completely disassembled, but am up against a roadblock. The turn signals are threaded through the old one, and the only way I can see to remove it is to cut the wire to release the signal from the inside of the frame.

Before I start cutting wires unnecessarily, is this the "approved" way to do this?

Wires unplug under seat. Then I think it twists into the rail. No cutting necessary.

So, in the attached image, I can just pull the wires apart? The arrow is pointing to what looks like a fuse, but that's just a connector? Do I pull back the plastic sheath that sits over the top and just disconnect/reconnect the wires?

Sorry, I'm new at motorcycle wiring so am not familiar with what a connector looks like.

Thanks!

Those aren't fuses, they are barrel connectors. Just pull them apart (by the metal part, not the wire.). When assembled, just plug them back in.

Wouldn't hurt to clean them while you have them apart with emory cloth and stick a little dielectric grease on them after you put them back together...

You know you can install the backrest and luggage rack without taking off the signals. Just take them off the rails and re-install them on yours.

No can do. The screws that attach the backrest/luggage rack to the frame it came with are welded together
