Valve cover gasket on 87 xr600r

I have noticed that the valve cover on my pig is leaking some oil on to the exhaust. Is this Valve cover gasket metal or fiber?????

The valve cover gasket is a metal one. Use an aroginal one when replacing

If the gasket is the original metal one, you can reuse it. Clean it thoroughly with lacquer thinner or acetone, let it dry and apply a thin coat of RTV or a couple of thin coats of Kopper Kote, & reinstall.
