Having wrecked and performed a full rebuild myself, I say it is definitely worth the endeavor. You will gain valuable knowledge about every part of your bike and you can take the time to get it done correctly.

Put jack stands under each foot peg and secure the neck of the frame by strapping it to some hooks in the ceiling or rafters. Get a good fan for the garage so you don't rush the job.

Strip the whole bike down. Just take pics along the way, get a lot of zip locks and a magic marker and label/sort everything you remove. Get different colored electrical tape and tape the wires on each side of the wiring connectors before unplugging so that you can easily match the cables back up.

As for the welding of the frame, I would suggest doing some sort of NDE on the weld afterward (such as x-ray, dye penetrant, magnetic particle, etc.). The tests will indicate if the weld is good and will put your mind at ease.

Once it is welded, you will have to remove all of the bearings in the steering head if it is to be powdered coated. This gives you a chance to pick up some new tapered steering head bearings (and wheel bearings, swingarm bearings, etc.) They are actually relatively cheap. You can go ahead and powder coat the wheels and swingarm while you are there. Maybe even get a volume discount.

All of your suspension will be removed. This is your chance to to either replace it (used OEM/aftermarket forks and shocks can be found on the gsxr or WERA board relatively cheap) or have yours rebuilt and sprung for your weight.

You are going to have to break the chain, so this is your chance to replace the chain and both sprockets (maybe do a 520 chain conversion). I suggest staying away from the clip style master links.

A new clutch and throttle cable can be purchased rather cheap and will keep you from having to replace them further down the road. This is just another thing that is easy while it is apart.

When it comes to reassembly, if you do not have the service manual, I would suggest procuring one. It is worth it's weight in gold. You will be able to torque and locktite every bolt as you put it back together.

You radiator and hoses will be off. This is a good chance to clean up the hoses or replace with a silicone hose kit and to soak the radiator to clean it up. This will help it run cooler and when you put it back on the bike, you will be able to go with some nice coolant (Motul, water wetter, etc.).

The results of the new chain, bearings, and everything being torqued properly will give you a bike that feels better than it did when it was new. Take your time and you will be ready to ride when the weather is a little less hot.
