Default Spark plug wire replacement question

I have a ‘11 1200 Custom that I would like to replace the plugs and wires with the Screamin Eagles I have...I noticed that the “long” wire is weaved and tucked under the tank. Is there a trick to replacing these? Thank You

Just undo the back bolt of the tank and lift up. Make sure the front of the tank passes.

When you take that bolt out and lift up on the end of the tank, stuff you a towel or something up in front of the tank in between it and the top triple tree because it will sure get into your tank.
