If you are going in, you will want a complete gasket kit. That way you can replace all valve seals and recondition your valves. Look into using a small valve spring compresser, or consider making a tool out of pvc and a large c-clamp. Keep your parts organized so that you dont get then mixed up. Do the work on the centerstand so that the chain is easier to keep in the crank sprocket at critical times. The valve keepers can be removed with a small magnetic wand. Getting them back into place involves a little magic. :-)
