Default 99 vulcan 1500-A13 oil leak

thx in advance,
I have a 1999 vulcan VN-1500-A13 with the 1500 motor and it is leaking oil from the front cylinder just above the reed/air valve..it appears to be the tappet cover is either loose or the gasket is bad,,is it possible to get at and tighten the tappet cover bolts without removing the engine.Is it possible to just remove the gas tank and the surge tank to get at these bolts.?..

Do I need to remove the back wheel in order to remove the engine?
