Probably. Take the cams out first. That'll also allow you to renew camchain and guides, if out of spec. (y)

Slacken the cam chain and You can push the top shells out  with a screwdriver    lolly pop stick 9_9  enough to get a grip on them...

as you have found codes are on back of cases .. but best to check clearance's of the new ones with plasti-gauge before finally bolting the cases up ;)

Take the cams out,  if your cam chains jumps a sprocket that would be real bad news. Short cuts do not always work out.

The amount work involved is minimal to give you clear access does not make sense not to do this.
