Valve cover gasket

Hey guys , I'm needing to replace my valve cover gasket/seal on my 07 yfz due to leakage, just wondering if I need any sealant for the gasket or does it go straight on? Also are the gaskets all the same size on every year? Thx

Yes, you need some sealant. I think Yamabond of some kind but not sure which one. Every year of carb model should be the same. Not sure if the EFI models interchange or not.
