Front sprocket cover

What size/type of Torx wrench do I need to remove the front sprocket cover, to clean out any accumulated chain "gunk"?

Thanks. I assume I'd need a "T-handle" type of wrench to get to the screws since they're recessed?

I will say that, coming from KTMs, I really like that most of their fasteners have both a Torx recess *and* an external hex for a typical socket. It's nice to be able to use both, I wish more companies did that.

My Bad FlyRyder I used a Torx plus bit when checking ,that's why I have a size difference. I should have stated TP-27 or T-30
