Yes, at this moment in time I consider the coolant piping to be the biggest pain for this project.

Not sure what you would see with the pictures. If you do plan on doing this, remember that the coolant is really the biggest hurdle... once you have the cover off, measuring the valve clearances is very easy... they are right there in front of you.
No, forget it, that's fine, I was just curious. Put 'er back together and go riding.
