Honda P/N 12391-KAS-901 Part number 8 of the below fiche.
How your going to get the cover off to enable you to get the new gasket in is down to you.
I don't know of any secret methods to enable you to get the cover off with the engine in
the frame..Guess you'll need to remove some engine mount bolts and some parts..Carb/Exhaust
maybe to allow the engine to drop enough so you can access whatever bolts need removing so you can install the gasket...Valve/Tappet gaps will need readjusting once you've got everthing back on..
TDC compression stroke and all that palava..

Well It turns out that It was not the gasket that was the problem it was missing a cylinder head bolt hole plug that was supposed to stop oil from leaking out. But luckily the part was in a box of parts that came with the bike. After installing I have no leaks at all.
Mine is always dribbling .... do you have a pict of that part.
you can remove the top with the engine in

This is the part that was missing on my bike and my bike is a 1984 model so you have to take the engine out in order to get at the top end unlike the 1985 which you can do top end work with the engine in frame.
