You might be able to leave the original undamaged gasket on the case by carefully removing the cover, and seal it back up with a touch of silicone sealant after wiping off any oil, like I did with my clutch/crankshaft sensor cover gasket. Gasket may be well stuck on the engine casing, which is hard to completely clean off without gouging the aluminum and creating a leak... I also removed my Yamaha WR426's generator cover a few times without replacing gasket or adding any silicone sealant, and without dripping any oil by leaning it to the right.
