tips for swapping out handlebar clamps

Does anyone have any tips for getting the nuts off the bottom of the handlebar clamps? I'm swapping the stock set for an oversize set and it seems a little tricky.

I saw in a video that basher posted about some tips for the right side but I'm having issues with the easier left side. It is a really tight fit.

It seems like it would be a lot easier if I took off the triple clamp and then took off each handlebar clamp. This way when I put the new ones on I could properly torque the nuts.

Is there any reason why I shouldn't do this? To remove the triple clamp I just remove the pinch bolts and then the steering stem nut?
