I think it may depend on the crash bars, but I'd think you should be OK. What bars are you running? I just put SW Motech's on my 2013 and while I haven't looked at it closely, I'm hoping I don't need to remove the crash bar to do my doo.
BTW - you're in Toronto? Do you have the doohickie tools? I just bought a set from someone if you need to borrow them.
