One of the orange lenses is cracked on my bike and I ordered a replacement set of the lenses. My question is how to replace the orange lense section as it seems to be bonded or glued to the black plastic base? I had assumed the replacements would come with the base attached, but I received just the orange lense section. Do I somehow cut the old lenses off of the base and try to bond the new ones on? What am I missing?

The original OEM lenses had the black base attached as one part. Not sure what you ordered or where you got it. I am guessing it is not OEM.

Originals are glued on to the base. This glue was applied to only a few spots, I have pried one off the base without damaging the base. Take your time and get some exacto knifes.

Thanks, I will try to remove the old lenses
then probably epoxy the new one on. These lenses are not OEM, they were ordered via a supplier I believe I found on this forum.
