Remove fairings, tank, and airbox to get to it. Unbolt it, good luck with the bottom bolt, its a pita. I ended up cutting the "L" off my allen wrench and using a socket with the long part of the allen. Scrape off any gasket residue, then replace with new gasket. While the old one is out use it as a guide for setting the length of the new one. (Not screwd out all the way, same distance from mounting surface to the end that makes contact with the cam chain) As a precaution, dont let the bike roll any while its out. Not sure how you're supposed to start the bike with the tank removed, I didn't. I haven't had any rattles yet.

Not my picture, found it on Google.

There are a few good write-ups online, check that website (I found it on there when I did mine)

Thats probably the best CCT swap-out write-up I have seen.
Very nice.

Mid-ish range revs (mine was around 3-6000ish rpm's) sound like something is seriously rattling, for a better use of words.

The worse the rattling gets, the closer the cam chain tensioner is to giving out, and if the timing skips...say goodbye to your motor.
