I had the same problem....be patient, it will com off. Wait until you try to put it back on! All of the stars must be in perfect alignment, and one prayer to the Yamaha gods.
Ya, I did get it off and then back on after checking the valves but holy crap what a PITA. I swear the people that designed this are retarded. The WR may be a very well built and reliable bike, but it by far the hardest to work on compared to any of the other current scoots out there.

With Yamaha, servicing is an afterthought due to their reliability, but be careful about bikes that are easier to work on - they are designed that way because of the NEED. 4 colors other than blue come to mind....
Umm, ya I don't know if I'd go that far. If I could have I would for sure be on another KTM. With the economy being to so tight though and having been through a recent job loss, I was not ready to spend that kind of $$ though. However, I am afraid it may cost me the same in the end to get this WR to perform as well as my previous '09 KTM 450.
