You don’t need it. Torque the bolts to spec and in a cross cross pattern , evenly.

Side question, when I watch others take the CVT cover off, it seems to come right off for them.

Is mine special that I have to pry the thing off slowly and evenly? 30 min is typically a quick time lol. There are only a couple pry spots and because I don't want to ruin the gasket or the aluminum contact points for it, I won't pry anywhere except the designated spots. If I recall there's only 3 spots to pry.

I used a rubber mallet, and tapped it off gently. There are two alignment pins that cause the case to come off with a small amount of friction, just tap the case out evenly.

I'll have to look at greasing them, since day one it's been brutal to get off. I've tried a mallet, I've even watched Arctic Frost video lol.
I guess I just got lucky lol. I can say for sure that if all my bolts magically broke, I wouldn't worry about the cover falling off
