Personally, I have been wanting to give it a try. But haven't gotten the details from Ken about the headwork that would make me feel comfortable spending $1000 for it.
Taking it apart probably will be the easy part.
Putting it back together...
I'm assuming you have the tools and have put a cylinder head back together before?
You need valve spring compressors, valve shims, feeler gauges, torque wrenches, etc. Not to mention either the special tools from BMW for this job or the ability to improvise.
If not, I don't know if this bike should be the first one to learn on.
Although, I don't think this stuff is rocket science...
