Stripping and cleaning the turn signal switch?

Anyone have a guide on how to do this? I have heard it is easy. I just don't want to **** it up. Any information on how to open it up is appreciated. Also my rear brake pedal barley moves. I am not to concerned about this seeing as the pedal is bent. I am just wondering if there is a better way to fix it besides paying Honda $100 for the pedal :(

Also I already tried electrical contact cleaner for the switch so please don't suggest that.

cheers

Just take it apart slowly. Only 4 screws total including the 2 that hold the housing together on the bar, then 2 holding wiring in place inside. I tried electrical cleaner and it helped for maybe a day. This time I went with white lithium grease after cleaning and its good as new a month later still.

06 F4i- Yoshimura RS-3C, Racetech springs and valves, Ohlin's rear shock, steel brake lines, 520 conversion. 81k miles and counting.....
08 600RR- Stripped trackbike. CRG shorty brake lever, goodridge front brake lines.

It is sticky as hell. There is a bunch of gunk in it.

Yup they get sticky and feel notchy and gritty when using, and eventually stay stuck over the the side you pushed them. Very annoying.

Just spray a lil wd40 on the turn signal switch and flick it until it moves freely. Worked for me.
