Checking them isn't hard. Replacing them takes a little more effort.
To check them you have to get all the front end fairings off, tilt the gas tank back, remove airbox, move the radiator out of the way, remove ignition coils and spark plugs, and take the cylinder head cover off. Then its a matter of lining up timing marks and measuring the right valves at the right time. Takes like an hour and a half to get to this part if you've done it before.
If you have to replace them, then you're talking about unwinding the cam chain tensioner, removing camshaft retainers and camshafts, then finally pulling buckets, measuring shims and ordering the proper replacement sizes.
