Simply slide the old bar out and slide your new bullhorns in........if your stem has the conventional cinch clamp. CAREFULLY prying open the clamp will make sliding the bars through the bends a lot easier...

Yes. Make sure the bar's diameter is the same as the old one. Either that or buy a new stem, too

Be careful not to score the bar when sliding it through the clamp. If it starts to catch or stick, back off a little and rotate the bar. Unless you are using one of those front-loading stems.
