Valve cover gasket - 03 WR450

Does the valve cover gasket have to be replaced each time the valve cover is removed?

no need to ever replace it unless it is damaged.

Great, thanks for the reply. I'm going to check the valve clearance, I can leave the spark plug in for this procedure right?

You can leave it in. :thumbsup:

Thanks Indy.

Indy, where did you get your big bore kit from?

I checked my valves and my intakes were around 10mm, maybe a little more, but the 15mm guage definitely wouldn't go. My exhaust valves were at 20mm. I'm assuming this will be alright for the short term, a ride or two, should I set them at the top of the range soon (15mm intake and 25mm exhaust)?

If they are within specs then I would leave them alone until they go out of spec. Just my 2c. Hope this helps.
