Remove front end and swap - questions

I'd like to swap the complete front end attached to the neck. Bearings, forks, tree, handlebars, wiring, EVERYTHING. I want to remove the bearings and fork plates as well from the neck.

I want to take as little as possible off to accomplish this. I can handle figuring out what needs to come off electrical wise, but as far as the breakdown goes, I want to know the proper way to take off the fork plate and bearings from the top and just slide the entire assembly off from under the neck and transfer it over.

Any help will be appreciated. I've never done it so I don't know what holds it together at all. I'd like some assistance in preparing for it.

Thanks!

Download the repair manual, but...

If you remove the handlebars, loosen the top triple tree clamps, then remove the nut from the stem and pull the top off, the rest should slide down.

Thank you, I removed everything. Is the shaft pressed into the bearings at all or should it tap down and out without heat or anything?

No, they shouldn't be pressed on, but could stick a little if not in good shape.
