    For the price of the new gasket you might as well, as you'll never get a proper seal with an old one. For peace of mind alone I would!
    Never happy, always wanting more!

    Yes 100%. Mine started leaking when I replaced the bolts. I did them one at a time as well, so cover was never even removed. Gasket was only a few months old as well, as had replaced it when I sprayed the cover.

    When you remove the rocker cover, you will probably find the old gasket has got quite thin and stringy.
