Read the manual on how to do this first! Don't just pull the rocker boxes.

But the 'customization' of the cam cover to make it look more rugged and getting her pretty face on Youtube was more important.

The FSM is first priority.
Here are some extra pics and info to help also in the XLFs Sportsterpedia.

She is also using the manual for a XR 1200, not an XL, for the torque settings, probably the same though.
