Changing Handlebars - Wiring (CB500T 76')

I'm swapping out my handlebars on my CB500T. Does all the wiring disconnect easily from behind the headlight? I haven't torn into that yet... and a little scared to. If so, any tips/tricks for keeping track of what's what, when re-running the wires/controls to/through the new bars?

I'm a noob, so speak to me like a small child....

THanks all!! Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Just take some good pictures of the wiring inside the headlight as you disconnect the wires. Then use some silicone spray to lube the wires as you pull/push them through the bars. Then if your color blind, get your wife (if not divorced yet) to help you match wire colors as you reconnect them.
