Adjusting steeering head bearings on 2006 1000RR

I suspect the steering head bearings on my 1000RR are in need of adjustment. I've noticed a slight judder/vibration from the front end when braking to a standstill and a slight vagueness when turning in. I'm going to check them once I get a bit of spare time and my mate is available to assist (damn the lack of a centre stand!).

Has anybody any hints or tips to pass on and are there any problems removing the electronic steering damper to get access to the adjuster nuts/collars?
