If you are going to check the valves yourself you will need to order two valve cover gaskets.

Above is a link to the page to order valve cover gaskets if you don't want to deal with the local dealer. The item number you want is number 16 and you will need two of them.

I had to step away from the computer.

Ok back to the valve cover gaskets, the link above will take you to the correct page. If you look it up yourself you like me will likely go to cylinder head, makes sense, the valve covers attach to the top of the cylinder head.

Wrong, you have to go to cylinder, that is where you will find the valve cover gaskets, if you go to cylinder head you will end up ordering cylinder head gaskets instead of valve cover gaskets.

It is rather confusing how they have this laid out to order the correct gaskets.

If the above link stops working again try this link and select OEM Replacement Parts Catalog, you will have to enter your motorcycle information in four steps on the left side of the page.

It is a bad link. It looks like it links to a site that you must be logged into.
The link quit working for some reason, I redid the link and it is working again but I don't know if it will stop working again. Here it is in this reply.

If the above link stops working again try the one and go to OEM Replacement parts Catalog, I posted the link below:

https://www.yocracing.com/accessory_store/store/yoc_listonecategory.asp?idcategory=385

This link will take you to a second page and you clink on "our easy to use parts catalogs click here"

If all else fails type a search for Cucamonga Yamaha and you can find these pages on their site.
