speaks the truth...it aint hard as long as you have a long enough extention to get to the radiator mount bolts. I used a 1/4in ratchet (dont remember socket size) to get the header nuts off and it was easy as pie...just becarefull not to dent in the fins on the radiator...

Its really not THAT hard to do, its fairly simple...the only part that you could say is hard is the bolts on the headers, they can be a serious pain.

I didn't mean to scare u away from it. It really isn't that hard. Longest part is getting the fairings off. Again not hard but time consuming. I use ziplock bags to keep from mixing up or losing hardware and put the bags with the respective part. Makes it alot easier on install.

Not a hard job at all.

Take Byrdman's advise to seperate the bolts so you don't lose anything or mix it up.

Just holla if you want help. It's fast and easy.
