Need to take off the oil pan (omitting the somewhat long story here)

Took off fairings
Took off exhausts (both sides)
Loosened all the nuts holding the oil pan
Disconnected the oil return lines going from the cooler to the pan

But the fan doesn't want to move.
Even tapped it gently with a rubber mallet.
Am tempted to take ascrewdriver and try to gently pry, but don't want to gouge anything.

Does anyone know what might be happening here, and how I can get the pan off?

Can you try to get a razor between the pan and the engine case? The razor should cut through the cooked gasket and make it easier to separate them.

What is the long story, I want to read it!
