Yes, you may have to loosen the backbone at the rear motor mount.

yeah, actually just took mine off yesterday to swap out the cams. Once you get the front backbone up it definitely gives you more room. The cap head bolts take a 5mm Hex drive as you can see. I then sacraficed a 3/16 allen wrench and cut down to about 2 inches so I could use that in the tight spots to speed up the process.

You must be looking at getting them Powder coated?
