Removing the throttle cables isn't really necessary. If you remove the front brake perch and loosen the throttle on the clipon you can get enough slack in the cables to pull the far enough out of the way.

I had a heck of time getting that bottom cable back on the throttle body the one time I chose to remove them.

Hmmm... I used the special tool when I adjusted my valves. Seemed to work well.
I've got a little article I put together on how to inspect the clearances, but you really should have the service manual any time you attempt something like this. My valve inspection procedure . I think it's in the kb.

What tool do you use to check the clearance?

I recently put in a set of hot cams myself, but I had to take it to the shop to get the clearances checked. I would like to do it myself and save $300 next time.

Most of that time will probably be in disassembling/assembling. We checked the valves on my RC last year with the aid of the service manual (the official Honda paper one, abtech ) at it's not too difficult. Might want to try tackling it yourself.
