Trying to remove front sprocket cover on 07..
Just pull the hoses out of the way. Not very difficult.
There's a guide plate that attaches to the back of the front sprocket cover. Of they're grimy they can get pretty Nast when not cleaned and it makes it a little harder to get off.
What you may be experiencing is the guide plate getting caught on the chain wrapped around the front sprocket.
Pull the hoses to the side and the front sprocket cover straight out till the guide plate clears the chain. You may need to push it towards the front of the bike a little till it clears. Then slide it out to the right (towards the rear of the bike) till it's free. It will take some wiggling.
