you can change the chain without removing the head...
I don't know any other way to do this w/ out pulling the head...
As far as I know, the forward guide WILL NOT come off without pulling the cylinder, as least > 5 cm.
You WILL have to pull the flywheel to access the driving gear on the crankshaft.

You can replace without removing the head. But I wouldn't recomend it. There is not enough clearance between the forward chain glidder and the gear on the crank to get the chain out. I forced mine out but that is not the way to go.
You have to remove the flywheel, stator, head/cams, forward timing chain slider. Then the chain will come out.
You cannot replace just the cam gears. There may be some aftermarket company that does it. But I havent heard. You need to replace the entire cam.
Look at your gears carefully. If they look ok you may be able to replace just the chain. But the manual recomends replacing the chain and all 3 sprockets at the same time. Your call.
