so quick question here, im adjusting my valves on my gen1 renegade, I cannot seem to get the rear valve cover out,
ive done valves before on my outlander and didn't seem to have this problem
I cant get it out on either side
ive searched all over google and forums and cannot find any info on removing them just reseting valves
only way I see is to remove rear head pipe?

Before you do all that, put a feeler on the valves to see if they need to be changed. I checked mine by just moving the valve cover to the side and they were bang on after 110 hours so I just tightened everything back down and rode on! You would hate to go through all that trouble just to find out they're all good. Lol.

I also changed my covers and gasket, old ones were leaking bad, I read they made new ones better? No leaks so far!!

Cut the zip ties for the wiring under the frame. Turn the valve cover so the high side is towards the rear of the bike. Then pull it Over the chain and sprocket. I just changed my covers and gaskets. All I did was remove the xmr exhaust snorkel I added. They will come off

there out I checked, and I need to replace the rear one as its warped real bad lol
so maybe ill just remove the heat shield off the exhaust first than do some wiggling before I take the head pipe off, I don't remember how I got it off my outlander before but I did,
