Prop the tank up and remove the screws from the airbox lid (you'll need a long phillips screwdriver). Remove the filter and the screws in the velocity stacks. If you want to completely remove the airbox you'll have to disconnect the flapper cable and some hoses.
If you planned to remove the PAIR system or flapper this would be the time to do it.
And while you have the tank up pull the vacuum hose off the fuel pressure regulator and make sure it's dry.

You have to disconnect the PAIR system if you are tuning via the air/fuel ratio as it puts fresh air into the exhaust gas. I removed mine for this reason as well as to reduce weight and improve airflow over the engine.
The flapper is just a pointless gadget that many people remove.
Removing either won't give you more power.
It's a bit complicated to write it out.
Don't you have a manual?
You may find it useful to take a bunch of photos of the routing of the cables and the positions of the adjusters before disassembly.
Basically loosen off all the adjusters at both ends of the cables, remove the switch gear from the handle bar and disconnect the cables from the twist grip and throttle bodies.
Install the new cables the same way.
Adjust the pull cable first so it has a little freeplay to ensure the throttle plates fully close and then adjust the push cable to take up any further slack.
It can be a real pain hooking them onto the throttle bodies so you may need three hands, good light and some long-nosed pliers. I wouldn't recommend doing it if you've had a bad day or there could be lots of cursing ;-)

Re: how to remove the airbox and install new throttle cable line

long needle nose pliers are a must and I also used one of those little pick hooks. I got these Craftsman 4 pc. Pick Set - Model CHP4-L at Craftsman.com
its like you need 3 hands but you need your fingers to be spaghetti sized.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

When it's time for a new filter get rid of the K&N and use an OEM or BMC.
If you remove the PAIR you will need to cap the ports on the valve cover or make some plates to cover the holes.

Just enough to prevent it from binding - perhaps 1-2mm.
