can you take a picture of the pin you are referring to so i may offer my best advice?
if i rember correctly that piece comes off with the cover. there is a bolt that appears to still be installed and need to be removed right above the center of the cover to the right a bit.
wait can you take a picture with the cover off?
okay that after going back to a recent suzuki engine i did a head on. that piece stays with the head. and the cover comes off over it. you will need something like a long screwdriver. or a thin prybar to reach down and pry the cover free from it.
