Re: Oh no
You can do the throttle cables with the airbox in place. When I did mine I was scared to tackle the airbox. I got in there with my fingers and rotated the throttle plate around. I think I had to take off the fuel rail to do it though. Don't forget to route the cables back in the proper position; both top and bottom end. DAMHIK.
You'll really be happy with the new cables and it's worth every bit of effort to do the job too.

00 K1200LT (Emil) 94,840 trouble free miles. Gone, but not forgotten
02 R1150RT (Artie) 109,000 miles. Favorite bike. With me to the end.
10 K1300GT (The Phantom) 10,110 miles. Like flying a T-38 on 2 wheels. Gone.
12 K1600GTL (Johnny 5) 3,500. A great compromise between the LT and GT
