I had the same problem a few years ago. The actual waterpump change is easy once you get the engine moved. Get some tie down straps and secure the bike upright. Get a transmission jack or motorcycle jack to position under the engine ( this is to hold the weight of the engine only) remove the carbs, and subframe assembly on the right side of the bike. Once you remove the holding bolts the front of the engine can be moved to the right a few inches and will allow you enough room to remove the waterpump.
Recommend taking your time, and go step by step. If I had to change another one I could do it in 3 hours. good luck

Sprokets,
1. yes you have to remove the radiator.

2. yes you have to remove the bolts holding the subframe.

3. yes you have to remove the air cleaner box.

4. remove radiator hoses.

5. drain the oil or when you remove the waterpump oil will drain out on the floor.

6. rotate the front of the engine to the right, this gives you enough clearance to remove the waterpump.

7. remove the carbs.

8. remove the exhaust.

this is on a 1994 VT1100C shadow
