    Imo the process is the same as most 4 cyl. Japanese motorcycles... only easier because of the room You are afforded to complete the job. As far as guides go... the service manual is Your best bet...

    Remove catch can and spark plugs, you can turn the engine over with a crescent wrench easy

    good luck checking them its a pain in the ass not much room for the feeler gauge to move around with the cam cap and exhaust getting in the way.

    take the feeler gauge and bend it to a "L" shape, about 1/2" on the end. This makes it easier to measure.
