Cooling fan assembly broken (how to remove)

Hey guys, my cooling fan assembly seems to have broken away from the housing.( The the bolts that hold it on are still in) It seems as tho to remove the fan, the crash bar, right side muffler needs to be removed? I just want to make sure I'm not missing something or making it more difficult than it is. Thanks in advance!!

iirc...... read where a few peeps only loosened header pipe bolts in order to install / remove crash bar ( maybe attempting to save the doughnut/header gasket ?),
but to me, it did not sound like it was worth the frustration & (extra?) time 'mucking' with that method.
