The service manual is invaluable for this. Far too many steps and tricks to attempt it without one, and the pictures in the manual help a lot.
About 4 times now we have had service parties to do these, and each time it was thought that maybe pictures would be taken to write up parts of the procedure. However, the service manual already has done that, so the return for the work required to do it again just is not worth it.
We have learned a couple of tricks that can be added, such as not removing the exhaust system to get the swing arm out (as the manual says do), but that is a little hard to describe, the hardest part is getting the left side of the swing arm out past the bolt that is in the bottom of the battery bracketry.
Also, the manual does not say to "phase" the driveshaft, but that should always be done. We have developed the trick of how to mark the splines to make that fairly easy.
If you decide to take on this project yourself, get a copy of the service manual, study the procedures, and ask questions after you see all the detail already available to you in it.
