    Also, make sure you have the correct torx bit to remove/replace the derby cover...I believe it's a T-27...easy w/the screws because they strip & snap.

    Agree that those torx screws are easily strippable. They tighten the snot out of them from the factory although yours has probably already been off. Allen screw replacement is a good idea.

    Have the bike upright when you remove the derby cover or the primary oil may overflow

    ...what everyone else said and...prop up the bike as upright as possible that way you wont lose any oil. The swap is a piece of cake unless you have problems getting the torx loose.
