I've done it once and don't remember all the details as it was an uneventful task. It just takes a bit of preparation by removing the things in the way and disconnecting and plugging up the disconnected hoses so as not to get gas all over the place. I think the hardest part was wrangling it out from between the frame rails, but it really wasn't that difficult either.
Here's a link to another Goldwing site that has some accounts of some experiences and someone also posted some pictures too...

Have fun!
I went in there to tighten up the hose clamps for the coolant hoses, so if you're in there for something else, consider doing this too....the older the bike the more likely the hose clamps will need a turn on the screw to snug things back up. Plan on about two hours from start to end.

If you follow Fred's video don't bother with the lube. it looks messy and it is not necessary .
