Installing Throttle cable on 2012 WR450

I'm going to install a new throttle cable on my 2012 WR450. Anyone who's done this already have any words of wisdom? Looks pretty tight in there, but I'll see how it goes once I get into it.

Got into it today. To change the throttle cable you need to, remove the gas tank, the vent that goes from the head to airbox and starter. Oh ya, and I also removed the silencer. I removed the silencer as was changing my rear spring, but am pretty confident you couldn't change the throttle cable with the silencer still on. At least not with the massive stock clamp.

I changed the clutch cable after breaking it, and it was kind of a pain.  I'm assuming kind of like your throttle cable experience.
