Question on throttle cables / plea for the DB

Hey all, I'm replacing the throttle cables on my 2002 919. I got the front setup in place, and I've read the posts here about getting the throttle body out to connect the other sides. It's not quite coming together, and I'm wondering if someone could give me some last-mile instructions, as it were. I can see where the other side of the throttle cables would go, but can't find a decent way to get there. I'm told there's a dropbox with info? Thanks for any advice.

Did you manage to get your throttle bodies/airbox removed from your bike?

Nope. I've found and disconnected what I think are most of the attachments, including the pipe clamps, but it's not moving.

Your airbox/throttle body is removed in one piece. With everything disconnected gently pry boots off cylinder head. Use a pry bar. One boot a bit at a time. Gently work your way across. The whole airbox/throttle body assembly should move back a little and out the left side. Throttle cables are disconnected at handlebar and pulled through still attached to throttle bodies. My bike is over 15yrs old so the boots are not new and pliable anymore but throttle bodies popped/slid out easy enough. Warm bike up in the sun or get a hair dryer in there, don't do it on a cold day.
