How to Remove Lower Unit on a Yamaha 200hp


How do I separate the lower unit or gear case from the midsection on my Yamaha 200 horsepower outboard engine? My outboard is a 2008 Yamaha 200 hp model number LZ200TXR 2-stroke V6, HPDI motor.

Is there online documentation that shows step-by-step how to take off the lower unit or can anyone provide instructions with pictures?
