remove your oil cap and pull up on it and it will come off

the big black plastic thing? No side effects. Take off the oil cap, then yank off the cover. Replace oil cap. Annnnnnd you're golden.

Side effects? if your anything like me, you will get sick of looking at the dirty old valve cover and wanna do something with it. After about 10 hrs of hand polishing it came out like this...

I would also recommend if you are going to take your cover off and leave it off, while your oil cap is off, go ahead and twist and pull the oil cap neck off of the valve cover, all it does is extend the height of the cap for the cover. Then you can put your oil cap back on right on the valve cover and it wont look silly
