Also while you have the alternator removed would be an ideal time to check the universal joint boot. It's considerably easier to replace with the alternator removed. You can access the boot from both sides.

We just recently changed the clutch in a 1996 Gold Wing. It will probably take you longer to scrape the old gasket off the (engine side) than anything else. There are a couple of places that are pretty difficult to access.

When you remove the rear plate (the one with the slave cylinder), watch carefully for the little "cup type screen filter". It is located on an oil supply line on the lower right corner of the clutch housing. It may drop off as you remove the plate, then you will be saying where the heck did this come from. Look close and you will see the oil supply line, it just slides on the line. Think of something that looks quite similar to a sewing thimble with a screen filter in the end.
