GL1200 Clutch replace on bike

I have seen a few people post about changing their clutch while the engine is still in the bike. Does anyone have any photos of this? I believe someone said they did it in a couple of hours. My technical ability is very high, but I have not done one of these. If no photos exist of this, I will film the procedure. ANY tips/tricks on this will make me a happy man.
My bike is old, but so am I!

I believe you need a spare clutch basket to do it. Give it a search there are a lot of threads and I believe a how-to.

I've done them on GL1000s. As long as you have the correct socket to remove the clutch nut, the only hard part is cleaning the gasket surface on the bike (and not cracking the spring plate. LOL).
