I tell a lie. I have just looked at mine. You have to remove the fuel head/airbox bit to get the manifold off. You can't leave the box there.
There is no reason to try and leave it attached to the manifold. When you come to torque the spacers/manifold down, you have to do it with airbox off - it covers the last stud on #3 cyl.
You can spanner it with airbox in place - but you can't torque it. So you really need to separate the airbox from the manifold.
I have a closed fist of gap between the top of my fuel head and the top tray (without any soundproofing in).
From memory when you take the fuel head and box off together you have to jiggle it foward on a bit of an angle.
Alternatively, there are only 3 central screws in the middle of the fuel head holding it in place. You will just need to prise it up and off with a screw driver - if the O ring seal is still tight.
