Am I to infer from your remark about "don't seem to mind writing" that I'm longwinded? If so, you're right :? . The by-product of being in sales for years and semi-retired. Anyhow...
I'll give you a thumbnail version of some of the things you may find useful without going through each exact step. Most of it you've already hit.
I don't have access to a professional shop and as such, many of the means I use are backyard if you will. We've found that using a m/c type jack like a BlackJack or similar is a great device for putting under the back half of the bike. Really stabilizes it nicely. We use a floor jack to raise the bike and put jackstands underneath the framerails on the front section. Watch the brake lines and shift rod. A hydraulic floor jack will also work on the rear. Just make sure you have wheels.
After tank removal, wiring, brake lines (if you don't have the slack) and everything connecting front and rear, you remove the 4 upper and 4 lower frame rail bolts. You also have to take out the 3 bolts securing the torque converter to the flexplate. Open end/box wrench and a big screwdriver to turn the flexplate giving access to the next bolt. Make sure the alignment of the front and rear framerails are as equal as possible height wise to insure the rails will not bind. If you have an older model that's never been split, expect a real tug-o-war. Loosen the bellhousing bolts to the motor. I've found the best way to start splitting the two halves are to carefully wedge a large screwdriver or flat end of a prybar between the bellhousing and motor and pry slightly and equally on both sides. Once you do that a few times you'll notice the framerails have started to split and you can pull it apart. Lots easier with 4 hands than 2 on that part.
You can pull the rear section back and cant to one side giving access to the converter. Just pull and it's off. Slide the new one on and repeat the steps in reverse.
The good news with a converter replacement is it's a LOT easier than pulling the tranny. That involves totally seperating the two halves, disconnecting brakes, pulling the belt off, removing the front pulley, blah blah blah. It's also a job to twist the tranny clear of the frame and it's a heavy mutha.
I've skipped some of the obvious stuff but that's the essence of it. Good luck.
