Camhead (2010GS) valve clearance checking - asking for a friend lol

Ok this has been bugging me for ages. I do most of my maintenance myself. For the life of me though, while i have no trouble checking the exhaust clearances, it frustrates the hell out of me trying to get at the intakes. I cant seem to get a feeler gauge in behind the followers. I cant seem to see what im doing properly. Hence im constantly doubting if ive got the whole thing right.
I'm over being embarrassed by it, so is there a video or pics anywhere you guys can guide me to so i can get the job done properly without having to go to a dealership?
As I said, most things I'm comfortable with, just not this!
Thanks in advance

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy
