How easy is it to replace cam chains?

Can cam chains be changed with the motor on the bike? I here the chains slapping on the 06 750 Brute I got off CL and am thinking about replacing them. If motor has to come off I will do a rebuild on it.

tensioners are cheap plastic. replace those and inspect 1st. I have cams and tensioner from another bike if you need parts. just have to pull the caps off to do.

I thought the tensioners are metal that pump up with oil. Held on with two bolts on the side of the cylinder. They are around $70. Am i wrong? Aren't the plastic pieces the guides. Can the plastic pieces (guides) be pulled right out?

also if you pull the caps you have to pull the "tensioners" they are spring loaded and will pull the cam after you lift the cover off.
