Oil Pressure Switch

What is the procedure to clean or swap out an oil pressure switch on a Versys? Is is a 5 min job and can it be done when these is oil in the engine?

I have got a service manual. In the chapter 7-16 is the following:
Drain the engine oil
Right Lower Fairing
Switch Cover
Switch Terminal Bolt
Oil Pressure Switch

Oil Pressure Switch Installation
Apply silicone sealant to the threads of the oil pressure
switch and tighten it.
Sealant - Kawasaki Bond (Silicone Sealant): 56019-120
Torque - Oil Pressure Switch: 15 Nm (1.5 kgfm, 11 ftlb)
Install the switch lead direction downward.
Apply grease to the terminal, and tighten the terminal
bolt securely.
Apply a small amount grease to the terminal so that
grease should not close two breather holes [A] for
switch diaphragm.

I think it is not too difficult procedure.
