It's a fairly simple task. If you don't have a service manual I would get one so you know the proper torque values and sequences.

Remove the fuel tank and everything is right there. A couple of the bolts on the rear cylinder are difficult to torque back down properly because of access limitations, but otherwise it's pretty straight forward.

A hack-saw works well too, then replace with good adjustables.

Removing Rocker Boxes & Push Rods

Thx fellas. I was able to take off the top cover of the rocker boxes but wasn't sure on how to take off the lower covers. I already have a set of SE adjustable pushrods installed but It wasn't installed by me. That and the cams were the only things I wasn't confident on installing by myself.

DO NOT USE hacksaw! use bolt cutters to remove push rods if you go that route!

Q, have you seen this video from Fuel Moto? Not sure how far you have gotten with the heads/rods tubes. Maybe this will help: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=mMnQNPbwTfw
