Pulling and reinstalling heads

I planning on pulling my heads and throttle bodies in 3 or 4 weeks and sending to Power Tripp for a port job and blueprint the throttle bodies. Will raise the compression ratio slightly and rework the heads to improve mid range punch. I will be removing and installing the heads my self. I assume it is not to bad and wanted to see if any one has pulled and reinstalled them with the engine still in the bike?
I will also will remove the exhaust header and have it coated to help reduce engine heat. I just can't swing the cost of selling my for $8000 and buying a new 1190 for $15000 and it still needing $2500 in farkles so this is my route.
Hopefully will pick up 7 to 10 hp and my Bazzaz auto tuen can remap for the increased flow.
Currently have a Moto Hooligan air box and RC8 intake trumpets with a Remus Roxx 2 into 1 system with out the baffle.
