Greetings all

Any procedure or tips on removing the cam cover on the panigale?

So far I've:
- unscrewed bolts
- few gentle knocks with hammer
- tried to gently pry it open with a large screwdriver, using the slot on the top)

It still isn't budging...

Cheers

So I figured it out myself. Here some information for anyone who may be experiencing a similiar issue:

- I found a wrench, where the end of it fitted almost perfectly into the groove. I grinded down and bent this wrench until it was a snug fit
- The cover uses a liquid gasket which seems to act like a glue as well, hence it was a bit difficult prying it off. However, with a tool that sits snuggly, it works, but be gentle
- Once off, do what you got to do, and then clean the surfaces of the old gasket liquid, wipe with alcohol/ipa, and re-apply
