It shows pulling the entire assembly. How tough is it resetting the cam timing on these bikes??
Follow the manual, it's very easy and no hectic issues, just make a crankshaft holder bolt to hold the crankshaft at TDC.

It is possible but finicky to just leave the barrels in place as there are bolts that go back up through the barrel into the head to facilitate just taking the the whole head off and not having to replace the head gaskets. But as you are going to be doing port work you'll have to get them apart.
