Replacing secondary spark plug with Hepco-Becker crash bars

2008 R1200GS.

Can the secondary spark plugs be removed/replaced without removing the crash bars? It looks like there might just be enough clearance.

I plan on replacing the plugs this weekend as part of my annual maintenance, and with new twins at home, I need to budget my "free" time wisely, so I'm curious if I need to add time for removing the bars.

I was able on my 06 GS. I only had to remove my crash bars for the Alt belt. Other than that I could access everything easly
