parts diagram. I like Ron Ayres Yamaha for parts ordering.
Look in the 'how-to' section, and also use the upper right-hand 'search' function. Do lots of reading, print things out, make notes, and take lots of pictures
each step of the way. I usually remove the throttle cables from the plastic junction box under the left airhorn. That's a good place to ensure that you take pics to guide your disassembly and reassembly. Use baggies, I usually use masking tape and a thin Sharpie marker to label the bags. Since this sounds like your first time, I'd say a good rule of thumb to give you a reasonable expectation of not making mistakes during reassembly, is if you remove something, take a picture of that.
Where does it go, what is its name (& part #) on the parts fiche, and in what order did it come-off?
