If you want to save the box you have to remove the rear wheel. If not just remove one shock and cut the box with a dremel and remove.

Pictures might help. What do the carbs go into (towards the back of the bike)? It will be either the black plastic air box or separate air filters, in which case the air box was already removed. Did u buy the bike new?

It's a seriously big job. If you're good at this stuff, go for it.

Personally, I took it to my dealer.

I disagree, it's really not tough at all. I'm not that handy and it was a breeze. Just take your time and you'll have it done in no time.

I agree Thruxtonbill. It took me about 3 hours total and I cut up the battery box and kept part of the rear mudguard.

I did the initial cutting with a hacksaw and then put in on the grinder. Straight forward if you take your time. Easy peasy
