    Coming from such source a "NEW", the instructions should be included.
    UPDATED:
    Not recommended (warranted) to be installed on any other brand instrument than a Bach.
    Send your instrument to a competent tech and have them acquire a trigger assembly that will fit your instrument.

    And what are you going to do with a first valve trigger?

    Firstly you will need a gas torch, flux and solder.

    Secondly you will need the experience to do the job.

    Thirdly take it to a technician who can fix the mess and do it properly. (Perhaps this should be first).

    Regards, Stuart.

    If you need to ask the question you will not understand the answer.

    Looks pretty straight foward, if you can solder. Don't be scared to do things yourself! You'll never learn if you don't try. The pros might be right, but they have to stay in business. Of course they will do a better job maybe but that is there job

    I would play/experiment with a 601 King, an Ambassador or a Chinese POS. A Strad - go to a Tech.
    There is no question here -

    I would imagine that kit could be installed on any horn especially the OP's Yamahas

    Look very carefully at the bottom of Ivan's (trumpetsplus) signature......it applies to modifications too.

    In short. Send to a tech.

    Read Ivan's advice again and again and again.
    The chances are slim you will be able to align it properly and the chances are quite good you will damage the horn you are working on.
    Not everything fits other manufacturers horns, either. There can be differences in angles in how the slides are attached to the valve casings and length of the slide itself.
    This is where an EXPERIENCED technician comes in to the picture, not some amateur's opinion.
