Norman, those valve job pics are mine. As you can see, just about everything has to be stripped off the bike to get to the valves. Not difficult, just slow and you have to watch carefully how those flimsy plastic connectors work! I checked mine at 11,000 miles and they were all spot on. I don't think I'll do it again, unless I'm really bored! If you decide to do the job, it's a good idea to take pics along the way and make notes.
After looking at your pics and realizing just how much has to be done I sat down this morning and read the procedure in the manual. I have already started the procedure this morning and took pics of even the most trivial aspects of taking off the handlebar covers and maintenance lid. I will try and do a thorough job of recording and documenting the procedure. I see this will end up being an extensive How To.
You've got that right! Just be careful with those plastic tab connectors on some of the body panels - push or pull them the wrong way and they break - don't ask me how I know! If I remember correctly, you need a special torx driver to remove the ignition key assembly, but I managed without removing it. Have fun!
