I always take the carb off to rejet. I usually end up doing all of the jets at once and follow my set jetting chart that works very well for my bike and mods. I rejet for each season and for high altitude trips. It is a good time to clean the carburetor with carb cleaner as well. You do not need to rejet very often if you do it right for the seasons/conditions.
I have the factory shop manual and it lists the order to remove the carb. Is this good to use or are there some tricks?

Disconnect the throttle cables at the carb.
Unplug the TPS at the carb connector.
Loosen intake and engine boot clamps.
Rotate the carb to the left slightly and remove the hot start cable at the carb.
Take the handle end of a hammer and pry the intake boot away from the carb using the frame as a leverage spot.
Remove the carb from the engine boot and pull out the left side of the bike.
No need to remove the subframe.
