i`ve probably missed somthing but maybe some one else here can point that out, sorry no part numbers
---Take off the side fairings (you can get away with only brake lever side)&seat& disconnect battery
---Unbolt the tank lift gently at the rear and note where all vacuum+ drain and fuel lines go, the fuel lines have colored fittings (red to red..white to white)
to remove the fuel lines push the metal tabs in and gently pull down,un hook the vac+ drain lines lines, and fuel pump wires....take tank off and set carefully aside.Extra hands help with disconnecting the fuel lines.
If you remove the air box ,, note where all the hoses go. You can clean out the air box by removing the air filter and wiping it out gently with a rag.becareful not to damage any sensors in there.
The breather cover is on the brake of the engine with a large black breather hose coming out of it remove this cover(don`t forget to clean your gasket surfaces),on the inside of this cover you see a small inner wheel bearing type seal,, replace this seal.
The centrifugal is that thing with the plastic wheel that goes in to that seal, its held on by an Allen head bolt into the crank unbolt it and you may have to gently pry it off, fit the new centrifugal(align the keyway) and torque to 30NM(easier with bike in gear) , replace gasket, put some clean oil on the breather seal and the centrifugal shaft replace cover torque bolts to 9NM.
put bike back together.
A shop should be able to this in 1 hour if you choose to go that way.
hope this helps
