throttle cable replacement, how easy?

Got it all back together this evening after replacing the rear shock, there is a long story. However, I got it all back together and wanted to set the throttle sensor back to beginning. Key on, twist throttle, snap! OH, Crap.
What is involved in replacing this thing after I quess removing all the tupperware and gas tank?

I don't have any details handy, but I know there is a new replacement cable set that should make the throttle easier, i was told it is a several hour job to do the switch. there may be some info on the old site archives/

Not to bad. I know there should be a couple of threads on this because I used them and I added to them with in the last couple of months. I was able to do it without removing the fuel tank (just had to pull bolts and move it over a bit) and I didn't remove the fuel rail either.
If you need more I can send you a PM. Hurry though, the wealth of information on these projects never seems to stay with me after the project.
