I am wanting to remove the oil filter cover and the oil pan and some of the allen key head screws are stripped.  Looking for any suggestions to remove these.

Hm
usually the experience says:
 
1. Oil out
2. get a torx bit for the 1/4" ratchet & set the torx bit with a hammer (well dosed)
 
this nothing special with the K but standard knowladge
I´m a bit scared about those kind or questions - it´s like "left or right for tightning"
 
I´d dismount the complete oilpan fist

The oil pan uses the same size Allen screw but you need a new oring/gasket to put it back. An oil filter cover and sump pan would be cheap from a breakers.

before you remove the lower sump plate its possible to get a vicegrip onto the head on the allen headed bolt, there is usually enough room under the bike to use a medium set. clamp the vicegrip onto the bolt head and use an adjustable spanner to tweek the bolt enough to loosen it, once you have cracked the thread you can go back to the hex wrench and it may work with enough force to remove thw now loosened bolt, if it dont work then go the removal of the lower plate. P.S. you cant go full circle with the vicegrip or it will eat into the filter cover just a tweek to break the seal as it were.

I would remove the whole oil pan first as it gives you a clear go. Nothing will fall out and no gasket is needed for reinstall just some permatex RTV silicone.
Give the socket heads a good clean as dirt in the socket causes it to not fully engage the hex key and even a solid hit with a drift and 12oz hammer will make the screw come easier.
If all else fails a 1/4inch drill will drill the head off the bolt and then the remainder will come quite easily with vice grips.
