Help-stuck valve adjustment covers

3 out of 4 valve adjust covers are stuck on my Yamaha TX750. When I rebuilt the top end the engine was out of the bike and I did the initial valve adjustment without the main cover on and did not remove the adjustment covers at that time. Now it's time to check the valve adjustment, and I can only get one cover loose. Any suggestions other than pulling the engine to get the main cover off? The covers are aluminum with a 27mm hex, and the hex is starting to round off on the three that are stuck.[IMG]file:///Users/johnjones/Library/Caches/TemporaryItems/moz-screenshot.png[/IMG] The forum won't allow me to post a pic. but here is a link to what the valve cover(s) look like. Thanks.
