No, it's not particularly difficult - nothing I haven't done before, but I tend to second guess my ability. Last time I did the Shadow carbs, I didn't quite get one as clean as it looked and had to pull everything out all over again.
Shimming the needles isn't a big deal either - since you can get to the rear carb slides while the carbs are still installed, do you think it's possible to shim the rears and see if it makes any difference at all before pulling the entire assembly to do all four?
EDIT: Now that I think about it...I should be able to get to all 4 slides after removing the fairing, is that right?
