Getting to a coolant leakcoolant

You can see the leak behind the thermostat on the right side.
So my question is, how hard is it to get to this area to fix?
or maybe the real question is how easy is it the mess up the stuff I have to take off to get at this?

If you pull off your right fairing and look into the frame into the vee, you might beable to sneak a wrench onto the clamp... iirc they are 8mm.

My video doesn't show assembly, but essentially installation is the reversal of removal. To get the throttle body back onto the boots it's a good idea to use a rubber safe lubricant like WD-40 on the boots. Then you use a rubber mallet to thump the whole assembly down onto the front boots first, then the rear boots.

Can't do anything more tonight. My long screwdriver is a little to short and I have to head to work in a while.
