I just did this exact thing on my 1980 CM400T. I second removing the rubber seal, but then I used two big screwdrivers on opposite sides and pried up under the chase using the two steering stops as pry points. Popped off real slick. Before that I tried hammering it off and it didn't budge. I was surprised how easy the pry method worked.
