A manual will outline the procedures/work you need to do. There is a downloadable service manual available here on the forum. Take a look at it and evaluate whether you would feel comfortable doing it yourself. If yes, go for it. The folks here will help you.
There was a time when every mechanic had never done major engine work. Keep that in mind. IMO, if you have the time, patience and determination to do it, you can do it.
I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!
