Cam Cap Bolts, these are the bolts that hold the cams into the head. There are 4 in the exhaust cam cap and 6 in the intake cam cap. Exhaust cam is on the front of the motor and the exhaust is on the rear. Be sure you have a good torque wrench that will handle 20-200 inch/lbs for re-installing the cam cap bolts. 86 inch lbs will get you real close to the 7.2 ft/lbs the book calls for.
You will also need the Yamaha Flywheel puller to get the timing chain out. Hope this helps,

Not sure you need to remove the chain altogether, I left mine on.
be prepared to drop a little $$ on a good Torque wrench
It's really not that bad
1. Follow the Maual for the disassembly
2. from motoman 2 KEY steps that I missed and it caused me a lot of extra TIME, but no damage: use a zip-tie to tie wrench off to footpeg and prevent cylinder from rotating past TDC; and use zip tie to tie off timing chain to the INTAKE cam
3. Leavthe intake cam in place. It will save you time and frustration
GO for it
